Our first Undergraduate STEM Research Seminar of the year will be this Friday at 4pm in Bruner Hall 210. (Snacks will be served starting at 3:30pm.) The speaker will be Dr. Frank Gonzalez from Oak Ridge National Lab. Dr. Gonzalez is part of a team looking for “mirror matter”, which is often explained in the popular press as a search for an alternate “mirror universe”. Dr. Gonzalez will discuss this work and how it connects with scientists’ ongoing efforts to better understand the universe at a fundamental level. You can read the abstract for Dr. Gonzalez’s talk here. These seminars are geared for undergraduates from any STEM major, but graduate students and faculty are also encouraged to attend!
