Thesis in Three presentation: Jess McHale, Cascading Hazards

Jess McHale (Science) explains her research on Cascading Hazards – the idea that one hazard triggers another, which triggers another. Watch her presentation that won her third place at the UC Thesis in Three finals in August. (video: 3 min 08 seconds)

Each year, the Dean of Postgraduate Research at UC sponsors and organises the Thesis in Three competition for postgraduate students. PhD and Masters students give a three-minute presentation to describe their thesis research with only a single presentation slide. The top three students from each college round go on to compete in the UC final.
