The Mathematical Sciences Welcome Week for Graduate Students

Mathematical Sciences faculty will give 15 minute overviews of their research programs. Students who are looking for a research advisor or who are interested in learning more about the wide range of research going on in our department are strongly encouraged to attend. We will hold two concurrent sessions, one in statistics and the other in mathematics.

You may attend in person in the rooms listed below or remotely via Teams. The sessions will be recorded for those students who cannot attend at the scheduled times.
