The Geophysical Laboratory's Zack Gaballe and Rajasekarakumar Vadapoo and DTM's Miki Nakajima, Erika Nesvold, and Johanna Teske will host "The Second Annual GL/DTM Poster Session"* at 3 p.m. on Wednesday, 18 May 2016, in the Tuve Dining Hall.
This annual poster session aims to provide Carnegie postdocs and staff scientists a chance to show their work, learn what others are studying, and hang out talking about science with eachother.
Last year, the session was comprised of 37 original posters from GL and DTM participants; including postdoctoral associates, staff scientists, collaborators from the University of Maryland, alumni and support staff. The Tuve dining hall was buzzing as participants and attendees mingled from poster to poster, discovering all of the different facets of science that are taking place on campus.
*This event is open to Carnegie personnel only.
