Graduate Colloquium

The Graduate Colloquium is an amicable and relaxed venue for engagement with the work of the Department’s graduate students. It is a great opportunity for graduate students to gain experience presenting, to share and receive feedback on current work, and to workshop new ideas.

The Graduate Colloquium Coordinator for 2020-21 is Vipushi Sivanesanathan.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020-21 Graduate Colloquium Series will be held remotely.
