Congratulations to Gregory Lui, who is completing his PhD in Chemical Engineering at University of Waterloo, for winning the University’s Three Minute Thesis (3MT) competition. 3MT is an international research communication competition in which graduate students have three minutes to distill their research into a presentation that is both understandable and engaging to a non-technical audience. Gregory was invited to compete against fourteen other competitors at the University’s finals after winning the department of Chemical Engineering’s 3MT heat last month.
Gregory’s winning presentation, Photocatalysts: Using Today’s Waste to Power the Future, describes how photocatalytic materials could use sunlight to simultaneously break down pollutants in waste water and generate electricity.
Gregory will represent the University of Waterloo in the 3MT Ontario provincial finals at York University on April 19, 2018.
