Campea also receives $1,000 and the Dean’s Award for Excellence in Communicating Graduate Research.

Another masters student in Cemical Engineering, Indranil Sarkar, placed fourth with his presentation, “Creating porous carbon materials from polysaccharides.” He receives $200 and a $25 gift card for the Phoenix Craft House and Grill.

The Ontario Provincial Three Minute Thesis competition is on Wednesday, April 17, 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. in the L.R. Wilson Concert Hall. All are welcome to attend.
