Congratulations go to Davide Zilli, who won first-place at the Faculty round of the Three Minute Thesis (3MT) competition. He competed against 9 other excellent candidates. He now goes forward to the University-round of the competition in early-May.

His talk, titled 'Monitoring endangered wildlife with Smartphones,' was on the topic of his PhD research, investigating the use of bioacoustics for smartphone-powered citizen science. In particular, the New Forest Cicada is the only cicada native to the UK and, having not been seen for many years, is at great danger of becoming extinct. Davide's research is investigating whether or not the millions of annual visitors to the New Forest National Park can be turned into mobile biodiversity sensors, using the smartphones that they carry.
