Brown Bag Series

The brownbag seminar series is a forum where staff members and visitors to the School can present their work in progress. The seminars serve as a venue for constructive discussion and a place to share ideas at the very frontier of research and at a preliminary stage of development.

Seminars take place in Castlecliffe, F2, on Wednesdays at 1pm, unless stated otherwise.

Organiser: Kemal Ozbek
