Fall 2020 Colloquia

Wednesdays @ 4:00 p.m.

Colloquia will be conducted this semester on Microsoft Teams because of COVID-19.  Invitations to the colloquium meeting will be included in the E-mails advertisements for each talk.

Our department colloquium is a forum for invited scientists to present modern research in a fashion accessible to those with a background in physics, but who are not experts in the field. Talks are aimed at the graduate level.

If you have questions about our colloquium, please contact Dr. Michael Kesden.
