Niyati Desai Wins First Place at the Three-Minute Thesis (3MT) Competition

April 27, 2023

Leaning into a fictive role as a cheerful "exoplanet real estate agent," aerospace graduate student Niyati Desai described her real-life research on imaging planets in regions that are "just right" to support life: those not too hot and not too cold. Her performance won her first place—and a $3,000 prize—at Caltech Library's annual Three-Minute Thesis (3MT) competition held April 25 in Hameetman Auditorium. [Caltech story]
