Student Colloquia

The EEB Grad Group (EGG) organizes a bi-weekly colloquium at 12 p.m. every other Wednesday during the academic year. Students and postdocs are invited to present their in-progress work, where they can receive feedback on their research in a supportive environment. Colloquia also provides an opportunity for students to grab lunch and socialize with friends and colleagues. 

Colloquia for 2022-2023 are planned in-person unless listed otherwise. We will closely monitor the COVID-19 situation.

Questions can be directed to the committee co-chairs: Emily Conway and Olivia Spagnuolo.
