SRI Speaker Series Kickoff

SRI Speaker Series Kickoff Event


Join us on Friday, November 11th for the first of many talks featured in our SRI Speaker Series!

Starting off the series is Dr. Priyam Patel - an Assistant Professor in the Mathematics Department at the University of Utah whose research focuses on low-dimensional topology and geometry. She is the recipient of numerous awards and grants including the National Science Foundation (NSF)’s CAREER Award, the NSF’s most prestigious award in support of early-career faculty. She is a passionate advocate for students and colleagues from historically marginalized groups, and she is committed to advancing equity and inclusion in STEM fields as well as higher education more broadly.

UCUR – STEM Abstract Workshop

If you are interested in submitting an abstract to the Utah Conference on Undergraduate Research (UCUR) or just wanted to learn more about abstracts, you're more than welcome to stop by in the library on October 6th from 4-5pm. We will be going over the basics of an abstract, and talk about what elements to incorporate in yours. We will also have time to work on your abstracts, and ask questions if you have any. If you have any questions about the abstract, feel free to reach out to Sarthak Tiwari at
