Faculty Research Presentations

Fall 2020

Each fall, many faculty organize research presentations for interested students; below is a list of scheduled faculty presentations specifically geared towards first year students. Other faculty have specifically requested to meet individually with prospective students. These lists will be updated as we receive information about these events from faculty, but please do not consider either to be an exhaustive list of faculty taking students into their group. At any time, you are also welcome to contact individual faculty members to request a meeting or more information about their groups.

All Students are required to attend/view this presentation:
