Three Minute Thesis

The Three Minute Thesis (3MT) competition asks University of Waterloo research-based master's and doctoral students to explain the breadth and significance of their research to a lay audience. 

Our current graduate students, Mengran Xu and Nick Zabara, had the exciting opportunity to talk about their research findings at this year's event. 

Mengran Xu: To Avoid or to Approach: Understanding Anxiety Through the Construct of Ambivalence

Nick Zabara: Can Trying to Feel Safe Be a Trap If You Are Already Anxious?
