2016 IQIM Seminars

IQIM Postdoctoral and Graduate Student Seminars Archive

The IQIM Weekly Postdoc/Grad Student Seminar is a student-run series focused on sharing work done across the IQIM group. The Friday gathering also offers a chance to interact with other research groups in informal discussions.

If you are interesed in presenting, please contact Tejas Deshpande
