DMRC PhD Candidate receives a special mention at the 2020 QUT Three Minute Thesis (3MT)

DMRCs PhD candidate Aleesha Rodriguez received a special mention at the 2020 QUT Graduate Research Student Showcase Three Minute Thesis (3MT). Aleesha’s work focused on how controversies spark public debate and can break up old opinions and power dynamics to introduce new people, concerns and ideas. Her research (supervised by Associate Professor Peta Mitchell) looked at how a wager on Twitter resulted in the construction of the world’s largest lithium-ion battery which sparked a controversy that has shaped Australia’s renewable energy transition.

Congratulations Aleesha!
