Seminar returns in 2022 on Feb 2, 2022

In the spring, ‘Student Happy Hour’ is a forum where graduate students are encouraged to share new results that could spark others to revisit their own data and/or foster collaboration. We want to emphasize that these talks will be preliminary results and comments/questions should be respectful of this new format. We see this format as slightly different than our ‘feature’ seminars where our speakers tend to be professors, post docs, agency researchers, etc. sharing their often times published works.
