Congratulations to Jack Hetherington and Trang Huyen Dang from the School of Economics and Public Policy for winning awards in the 2023 Visualise Your Thesis Awards!

Jack Hetherington from the Centre for Global Food and Resources won Third Prize for his presentation on 'Understanding and supporting Australian cheese manufacturers to improve the utilisation of whey', and Trang Huyen Dang won the People's Choice Award for her presentation on 'The impact of female education on maternal healthcare utilization'.

The Visualise Your Thesis competition celebrates research conducted by graduate research students around the world.

Developed by The University of Melbourne, graduate researchers are challenged to present their research in a 60 second, eye-catching digital display.

Submissions are judged on their visual impact and how well the content presents the research. Presenting in a digital format allows for different levels of creativity, multi-media, interactivity and interpretation, and is suitable for all disciplines.

The winner of the University of Adelaide Visualise Your Thesis competition, Georgia Moloney from the School of Animal and Veterinary Sciences, received a prize of $1000 and will compete in the International online showcase hosted by The University of Melbourne in the later part of the year.
