Research in Progress
Research-in-Progress (RIP) is a place for graduate students and postdocs to present their ongoing research results and to receive feedback from other researchers (i.e. students, postdocs, faculty). Questions and discussions provide technical solutions and help bring new ideas to current research. Lunch is provided.
Every Wednesday in MR6, Rm 3501, from 12pm to 1pm (unless otherwise indicated).
