Research Teas are a forum to learn about the work that other researchers are doing in a low-key and casual environment. You’ll learn more about the what, the why, and the how of their individual research processes. Discover the tools they use, the methods they employ, insights they’ve uncovered, and much more.
All Research Teas are held in the Meyerson Conference Room (Rm 223) in Van Pelt-Dietrich Library Center. Click on the session name for more details and to register for the event.
