Past group meetings: Fall 2019

Fall 2019

We meet on Thursdays in the Glacier Modeling Lab to learn from each other and from external sources. Each week, a different leader presents research, leads a discussion or workshop or clinic, identifies a short video/talk online to watch, shares a new paper or figure within a paper they discovered, etc… we keep it open-ended!

  • First week of the month: Kristin leads
  • Second week of the month: Celia leads
  • Third week of the month: Josh leads
  • Fourth week of the month: Jeremy leads
  • Fifth week, if it exists: Freeform bonus week.
