Three Minute Thesis

siewe haffner 3mt finalists

Two geography graduate students, Siewe Siewe (Ph.D. student, left in the image) and Matt Haffner (M.S. student, right) were among the 10 finalists named in the first-ever Three-Minute Thesis Competition (3MT®) organized by the The Oklahoma State University Graduate College this summer. Great job and congratulations!

Siewe and Matt competed in the final around of the Three Minute Thesis Competition (3MT®) by providing short but compelling explanations of their research projects to the live audience on Tuesday, June 25, from 6:30– 8 p.m. in the Student Union Theater. The finalists were chosen from more than 40 entries because they were considered to be best able to offer quick but meaningful overviews of their extensive research projects.

Siewe gave a presentation titled Human and Environmental Dynamics in the Korup National Park (KNP) in Cameroon and Matt presented his research titled Measuring Social Interaction Potential (SIP). Their presentations can be viewed at the OStateTV website.
