Research in Progress Seminars

Research-in-Progress (RIP) is a place for graduate students and postdocs to present their ongoing research results and to receive feedback from other researchers (i.e. students, postdocs, faculty).  Talks from PIs are welcomed as well. Questions and discussions provide technical solutions and help bring new ideas to current research.

We are allowing for two 20-min talks per session with ten minutes for questions following each talk.

Every other Thursday in Snyder 314 from 4 to 5pm (unless otherwise indicated).
