Kinetic Inverse Problems, Presented by Dr Weira Sun

This is the second of 4 talks that will be given this year, with the end in mind of increasing our understanding of work in our department, among both faculty and students. The talks are designed to be accessible to the mathematically interested. There will be no remote version, so it is also an opportunity for us to gather in a scientific context.

Future speakers for 2022-2023 are: Dr Marni Mishna (Jan 31) and Dr Nathan Ilten (Mar. 7)

Past speakers for 2022-2023 include: Dr Caroline Colijn (Oct 25)
