Shahrzad Naghibzadeh EURASIP 3MT contest finalist
- Sunday, 9 September 2018
The 3MT (three minute thesis) contest is an international contest for students to explain their PhD thesis within 3 minutes. It is held across many universities and countries. In the EURASIP version, students in Signal Processing are invited to submit their 3-minute video, and the best ones are invited to present their work on stage during the EUSIPCO conference.
In 2018, Shahrzad Naghibzadeh was one of 10 selected students to present her work, in the conference auditorium. By ballot of the over 200 people in the audience, she ended up in the top-three (see picture). The final selection was done by an award committee; the #1 place went to Virginie Ollier.
Microelectronics at work for sustainable healthcare
Institutions in the Medical Delta (a consortium consisting of TU Delft, Erasmus MC, LUMC, Leiden University and Erasmus University Rotterdam) are starting a broad and unique scientific programme in the field of technological research into innovative solutions for sustainable healthcare. This will involve an investment of five million euros over the next five years.
