Colloquium Schedule - Spring 2021

Thursdays - 3:45 pm in Nielsen Hall 170.

Coffee and cookies are served at 3:15 pm in the Nielsen Hall Atrium.

The Physics and Astronomy colloquium is a forum for invited scientists to present modern research in a fashion accessible to those with a background in physics, but who are not experts in the field. Talks are aimed at a graduate level.
