This seminar series aims to:
1) Help inspire interdisciplinary collaborations, as students learn about problems in other fields that could be attacked using their own expertise.
2) Provide a venue to spark new collaborations and interdisciplinary projects.
3) Increase graduate student exposure to fields outside of their primary area of research.
4) Give graduate students an opportunity to practice public speaking in a low-pressure environment of peers.
5) Help graduate students think about presenting their work to non-expert audiences.
6) Increase students' comfort levels with unfamiliar research topics.
Join us for the seminar and dinner at MIT's Sidney Pacific graduate residence!
