NSEC Research Exchange Luncheon Seminar

  

NSEC Research Exchange Seminars

We sponsor a Research Exchange Seminar for NSEC graduate students and postdocs as a way for them to learn more about each other, promote research information exchange, and benefit from the community interaction that being part of our Center provides. To keep things informal, we ask that only students and postdocs attend these seminars.

Seminars meet on alternating Tuesdays 1:00-2:30 for lunch in Maxwell Dworkin 119. Shown below is Bill Rues giving a seminar.

Download a Research Exchange Contact Sheet if you would like contact information on seminar participants. If you are interested in giving a talk, please contact brave@seas.harvard.edu
