Timm wins 'People's Choice' award

Graduate student Brian Timm was awarded 'People's Choice' at the inaugural BGSU 'Three Minute Thesis' competition last Thursday. The event celebrates the exciting research conducted by master's and doctoral students. Developed by The University of Queensland, the exercise cultivates students’ academic, presentation, and research communication skills.
