Ismail Olaniyi places second in IGARSS Three Minute Thesis competition
Ismail Olaniyi, a graduate student in the geomatics area advised by Prof Jinha Jung and member of the Geospatial Data Science Laboratory (GDSL), finished second overall in the Three Minute Thesis (3MT™) competition hosted by the IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Society (GRSS) as part of the IGARSS 2022 symposium held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. His thesis speech, "Developing a UAS Data Hub for the Wheat-Coordinated Agricultural Project," encapsulated his entire body of research with the aid of one static presentation slide.
3MT™, founded by the University of Queensland, is an academic competition that cultivates students’ presentation and research communication skills and challenges them to describe their research within only three minutes to a general audience with one static slide. Of the 10 finalists in the IGARSS competition, Ismail was the lone representative from the United States. His thesis and award presentations are shown below:
