Graduate Research Colloquium

PhD Candidate Presentations

February 28, 2020, 9 a.m. - 1 p.m.
SME 149, Structural & Materials Engineering Bldg., UC San Diego

Many PhD students are actively engaged in presenting their research to a wider world at conferences and symposia at other universities – but not their home institutions. The Graduate Research Colloquium is meant to overcome this atomization or privatization of intellectual work, in a forum where the excitement and energy of individual projects can become known inside the local community. Advisors will briefly introduce and provide their own reflections on the project, since the Advisor is in a unique position to see where the project lies in relation to the wider field, and to describe the contribution the project will make to the discipline as a whole.
