Electrical engineering student Maisha Sadia shared first place award among Ph.D. students in the UM Graduate School’s Three Minute Thesis competition
The 3MT® competition develops academic, presentation and research communication skills and supports the development of research students’ capacity to effectively explain their research in language appropriate to a non-specialist audience. This skill is critical for all graduate students across all academic disciplines.
In her three-minute presentation, Sadia explained how chaos theory can be used to design secure and efficient chaotic map circuits that prevent hackers from breaking into a computer by monitoring its power consumption.
Sadia is a recipient of 2022 summer research assistantship and Spring 2023 dissertation fellowship. Her Ph.D. advisor is Dr. Md Sakib Hasan, assistant professor of electrical and computer engineering.
The other first place winner among the Ph.D. students was Baharul Islam, who is studying medicinal chemistry.
