Info Session & Monthly Meeting: Energy Data Analytics PhD Student Fellows (Feb. 1)

Interested in applying for the second cohort of Energy Data Analytics PhD Student Fellows? (bit.ly/fellowsmar1) Sit in on a meeting of this year's cohort. You'll learn more about current fellows' research, hear more about the program and discuss any questions you have, and learn some data science skills shared by one of the fellows. This month we'll be discussing the use of version control (git) in research and how it can help you to more easily collaborate and share your findings.

SciPol Writers Studio Information Session

Are you a Duke student interested in science policy? Do you want to improve your science communication skills? Duke SciPol -- a comprehensive resource for scientists, policymakers, students, and other stakeholders on developments in science and technology policy -- is looking for students to join the SciPol Writers Studio. We will be discussing opportunities to write about Artificial Intelligence, Robotics, Nanoscience, and Energy Policy. Lunch will be provided.
Please RSVP to scipol@duke.edu

STEM in Color: A Celebration of Women of Color in STEM

Please join us for the first "STEM in Color: A Celebration of Women in STEM" brunch and keynote held on Saturday, February 16th from 9:30-11:30am.

Our keynote speaker, Dr. Ruthie D. Lyle, is a Lead Research Engineering with USAA Chief Technology Office of Research, a prolific inventor with 164 issued patents, and the first African American woman to earn her doctorate in Electrical Engineering from NYU's Tandon School of Engineering among many other notable accomplishments.

Experimental Design in Industry: An Interactive Workshop for Graduate Students and Postdocs

Designing experiments in industry can differ substantially from academic research. For example, there is often not enough time, money, or resources to test all of the variables in a system. In this interactive workshop, Dr. Geoffrey Hird and Dr. Christina Hofmann will walk participants through the experimental design process they use at Liquidia Technologies when engineering drug particles to transform the lives of patients. Attendees will learn about product development, quality by design, factorial designs, and other principles that industry scientists use.

Power Trip: PULSTAR & ABB

The PULSTAR is a 1-MW pool-type nuclear research reactor located on the N.C. State north campus. The PULSTAR reactor uses a fuel that gives it response characteristics that are very similar to commercial light water power reactors. These characteristics allow teaching experiments to measure moderator temperature and power reactivity coefficients including doppler feedback.

Duke Collaboratories Info Session

Considering a cross-disciplinary collaborative project? Attend a COLLABORATORIES INFO SESSION to learn more about the Together Duke Collaboratories initiative, a funding opportunity for interdisciplinary teams of faculty and students who are addressing major challenges in Energy and Water Resources; Race, Religion, and Citizenship; or Population Health.

Visible Thinking Symposium

On April 22nd, 2019 from 10-2pm in Penn Pavilion, Duke's annual Visible Thinking Symposium will be occurring. This event celebrates the achievements of undergraduate researchers and explores their original scholarship in the humanities, the natural sciences and engineering, and the social sciences. Visible Thinking is open to all Duke undergraduates. All students who receive support from the URS office are expected to present at Visible Thinking.
