*Please note: Presentation start times are approximate. Research presentations will be conducted in sequence such that once a student finishes their presentation, the next student in the sequence will immediately begin. In general, each presentation will take about 10 minutes. However, if one presentation ends a little early, the next presentation will start immediately afterward. Thus, if you want to be sure you see a specific presentation, we recommend you join the Zoom meeting earlier than the indicated start time.
