Graduate students in the Astrophysical Sciences and Technology program presented highlights from their research projects at the annual AST Research Talks Jamboree Friday, October 26th, 2018. This event provides the opportunity for students to practice giving
research presentations in an informal and friendly setting, while also providing those new to the program with an overview of what people are working on. Although it has a serious purpose, because it is always held around Halloween, it’s become a tradition to dress creatively.
