Please join us this Winter quarter for our annual Winter Quarter Speaker series. We'll be hosting cutting-edge research talks by leading scholars, offering valuable insights into the latest developments in our field.
In addition, we're launching the "What's Your Story" series, a series aimed at fostering connections between students and faculty. This will be an opportunity for you to discover the personal and academic journeys of your professors and colleagues, providing a unique perspective on what brought them to this work. Our guest speaker will be Dr Marcela G. Cuellar of University of California, Davis.
