Welcome back to Science Fair, Bwog’s weekly roundup of science events happening around campus. Notably, this week is the last one with the current Science Editor. He loves this round up, but stay tuned for the next amazing Science Editor! As always, email science@bwog.com if you want your event featured.

Seminar – Ivo Spiegel

  • December 12, 2022. 12 pm.
  • 601 Fairchild.
  • “In [Ivo Spiegal’s] talk, [he] will discuss [his] lab’s recent experiments in which [they] focus on the visual cortex of adult mice and combine a wide array of genomic, genetic, electrophysiological, imaging, and behavioral approaches to address these fundamental questions in neuroscience.” More information here.

EE Seminar: Heterostructures for Low-Power Electronics

  • December 12, 2022. 2 to 3 pm.
  • Schapiro CEPSR 414.
  • A seminar with Professor Deep Jariwala, University of Pennsylvania, whose “research interests broadly lie at the intersection of new materials, surface science and solid-state devices for computing, opto-electronics and energy harvesting applications in addition to the development of correlated and functional imaging techniques.” More information here and here.

CEEM Seminar Series | Kostas Papakonstantinou

  • December 13, 2022. 1:15 to 2:15 pm.
  • Schapiro CEPSR 414.
  • “A deep reinforcement learning framework for optimal decision-making under uncertainty in engineering systems: Linking data and Uncertainty Quantification to the action space.” More information here.

The Song of the Cell: An Exploration of Medicine and the New Human

  • December 13, 2022. 6:30 to 7:30 pm.
  • Online and New-York Historical Society. Ticket purchase and registration required.
  • “This event illuminates the fascinating history of how scientists discovered cells, began to understand them, and are now using knowledge of cell manipulation to save and improve human life.” More information here and here.

TISSUE TALKS: Sam Sia, Columbia University

  • December 14, 2022. 3 to 4 pm.
  • Online. Registration required.
  • “A weekly webinar series hosted by Dr. Gordana Vunjak-Novakovic, and the Laboratory for Stem Cells and Tissue Engineering” with “global leaders in tissue engineering.” More information here.

Trouble with Triples and Implications for Gravitational Wave Observations

  • December 15, 2022. 4:05 to 4:35 pm.
  • Pupin 1402.
  • “[Professor Miguel Martinez, Northwestern] will discuss the population properties of black hole mergers from these channels and how they might be distinguished from mergers from other channels. These results may help disentangle the origins of events observed in GWTC-3 and future gravitational wave transient catalogs.” More information here.
