Organized by your 2016-2017 PGraSC Community Outreach Committee, Hillary, Leah, Michael, and Rebeca
The last Graduate Student Seminar (GSS) of the 2016-2017 academic year was held on May 23. Some of our new PCC Graduate Student Steering Committee (P-GraSC) members gave one slide, five minute presentations on their research/interests over pizza, snacks, and beverages.
Grant Williamson from the Molecular Engineering Department spoke about new battery technologies under research at the Clean Energy Institute and why we should care about batteries in general.
Jake Steinberg (Oceanography) on the prevalence and importance of oceanic subsurface-intensified eddies. How do we observe these eddies and understand their role in the advection of heat and salt (among other interesting tracers).
Michael Diamond (Atmospheric Sciences)
“Small particles, large impact: Why do we care about aerosols?”
Hillary Scannell (Oceanography)
“Marine Heatwaves: emerging climate phenomena not just in your own backyard”
