2014 Doctoral Research Showcase


Come spend some time with the University’s best and brightest at the 2014 Doctoral Research Showcase.

April 8, 2014 from 12-2 pm | Location: Northrop Auditorium

More than 80 recipients of prestigious doctoral fellowships will present their research in a casual and conversational environment. These are truly our best and brightest; they are the creators of new knowledge and the next generation of innovators. You’ll have the chance to interact with them one-on-one and learn how their work benefits students, scholars, and communities across the state, the nation, and the world.

Presentations will encompass a wide-range of topics and disciplines, from the development of optimized turfgrass for roadsides to the engineering of efficient organic solar cells; from the allure of mixed martial arts in the suburbs to the public history of Somali migration to Minnesota; from noninvasive neuroimaging of high frequency brain activity to incentive-based strategies to change health behavior.

This year, the Showcase will be part of the Graduate Revels at Northrop, a celebration of graduate education and the reopening of Northrop auditorium that will take place from 12-3pm. The Revels will feature live performances, research demonstrations, a photography contest, and tours of Northrop.  Refreshments will be served.
