VINSE Nanoseminar header

The VINSE summer nanoseminar series provides an opportunity for graduate students or post-docs to share their current research with the larger VINSE community to foster discussion and collaboration.  Each seminar will consist of 2 talks of 15-20 minutes each with 10-15 minutes of questions.  The goal of these talks is to discuss and challenge the work being presented in order to promote a healthy debate. Seminars will be held in 134 Featheringill Hall from 12:00-1:00

The 2023 Summer Nanoseminar Committee is:
– Andrey Shults, Chemistry, Macdonald Group
