SFU's Three Minute Thesis (3MT) finals this year took place on March 27th, 2017 in the Big Data Hub Theatre. Cecilia Sierra-Heredia presented "Climate Change, Pollen, and the Development of Asthma". Her supervisor is Dr. Tim Takaro.

Cecilia is a PhD student in the Health Sciences program. Before coming to SFU, she received her MA in Measurement, Evaluation, and Research Methodology from UBC and her BA in Psychology from Mexico's National University.

After receiving her Master's degree, she returned to Mexico to teach undergraduate and graduate courses in research methodology and health psychology at La Salle University.

Cecilia has over ten years of experience in teaching and fifteen in research. She is interested in research design, coordination, and evaluation, and public health, research methodology, and psychology. 

Connections:

One take, one static slide, no props.
Just 3 minutes and the power of the spoken word.

3MT is an unparalleled interdisciplinary opportunity for you to hear about the interesting research that's taking place around the university, as well as to pick up some presentation techniques from some of the best graduate student presenters at SFU — and all in 3-minute segments.
