2021 Visualise Your Thesis: winners announced
Eva Guerrero Hreins from the School of Biomedical Sciences receives third prize in UOM's local competition.
“Have you ever reached for cake when you’re sad with heartache?” Eva's PhD research is all about stress-related eating and bariatric surgery.
Specifically Eva is investigating the neurobiology of stress-induced overeating and emotional eating - and the gut-brain mechanisms where bariatric surgery may be modifying eating behaviours in people with obesity.
Her creative, lyrical entry in the University's local Visualise Your Thesis competition portrays the focus of her research beautifully.
About the competition
Visualise Your Thesis is an international competition developed by the University of Melbourne aimed at helping graduate researchers refine and showcase their research communication skills and promote their research.
Participating universities run a local Visualise Your Thesis Competition using UOM guidelines. Each participating institution then provides a finalist for the online International Visualise Your Thesis Competition.
The prize announcement for the international competition will be held at the eResearch Australasia Conference, 11 - 15 October 2021 (online).
