Graduate-Faculty Talks

All talks are Mondays at 4:30pm on Zoom, except as noted. All interested parties are welcome, and graduate students are strongly encouraged to attend the seminar regularly. To that end, speakers are asked to keep in mind that these should be general audience talks that are accessible to attentive graduate students.

Students: As your studies progress you are also encouraged to use the seminar as a forum to practice giving general-audience talks. (Consider using research seminars to give specialist-talks.)

For more information about these talks, or if you would like to present one, please contact Yuqing Dai and Aygul Galimova.
