There will be no KRYPTON seminar Friday September 30, 2021. Please mark your calendar for next week, October 8, when we will hear from recent PhD candidate Sabyascha Guharay with tips for navigating the Phd program successfully. November is filled. We have openings October 22 and December 3. There is still time to get a slot! You do not need to have a polished presentation. You can come with general ideas about a research topic and the group can help you brainstorm how to form those ideas into a dissertation topic. This is a great opportunity to exchange ideas with other researchers. I hope to see you next week!
