Fischer Wins 6th Annual NACOE 3-Minute Thesis Competition

Patrick Fischer (PhD student in Mechanical Engineering) won the Judges Award in the 6th Annual Norm Asbjornson College of Engineering 3-Minute Thesis competition held in Inspiration Hall on February 27, 2020. The competition involves graduate students explaining, very concisely, how their research affects the average person. Patrick won the award after a great presentation describing his dissertation research aimed at understanding how cognitive distractions influence neuromuscular control in order to improve musculoskeletal injury preventions. Great job, Patrick!
