August

Congratulations to Sam Brookfield

The 3MT final included nine finalists from across the Faculty. The calibre of presentations was excellent and the stories used by the finalists to tell their thesis in three minutes were brilliant. The competition was very close with only 0.25 points difference between first and second place. Samuel Brookfield was awarded runner-up and did SPH very proud. Sam is supervised by Lisa Fitzgerald and Linda Selvey. His 3MT presentation was titled Why are we not all on drugs, right now? Asking the right questions about methamphetamine. Sam has been invited to present at the Wildcard Competition on 28 August. Sam is away presenting at two major international conferences in August, but we are hoping he might be able to make the wildcard competition. Congratulations again Sam! And thanks to the SPH contingent that came along to cheer him on.
