Tonight Nelson competes in the final round of The University of Waikato’s Three Minute Thesis Competition. He is one of eight finalists out of a field of 60. The prize? $5,000 towards research-related expenses. (A wedding is research related, right?) I would say “break a leg”, but he already has a possible broken rib after a rough surf session two days ago, so I’ll just say “Wish him luck!”.
