Student Research Seminar

New this year!  This seminar is meant to promote research collaboration among students on problems in probability and related fields.  Talks can be about any topic and are meant to be exploratory: speakers do not need to know anything more than what is presented.  If you are interested in working on a problem with others, please volunteer to give a talk (by simply sending me an email)!

Currently meeting on select Fridays, 4-5pm, 384-I (any open date is available for volunteers)
