Congratulations to Chenman (Cara) Yin, winner of the National 3 Minute Thesis People's Choice Award. After taking a fantastic fourth place at the Ontario 3MT in April, Cara convinced voters at the national level with her presentation Seeing the world at the tip of a laser beam. In her Master of Applied Science at in Physics, Yin is researching how to use lasers to cut bone and improve outcomes in brain surgery. She impressed the more than 2,000 voters with her accessible, clear – and, at times, funny presentation. It is a particularly sweet victory for the physicist who knew very little English when she arrived in Canada to do her undergraduate studies.
