The Physics Department hosts weekly colloquia presented by accomplished scientists from all over the globe. These lectures showcase cutting-edge physics and inspire the broader community to participate in science. Please join us on the Mondays listed below for an inside look at what's new and exciting in physics, and beyond. All lectures start at 4:15 PM (with the exception of the Department Welcome) and end around 5:15 PM. They are free and open to the public.
PLEASE NOTE: Zoom links will be posted on the day of each event.
For abstract and videos for each lecture, including past lecturers, please see our Colloquia and Videos page.
