PER Distinguished Lectures

This lecture series brings together distinguished scholars around the world to share their frontier research with the faculty and graduate students in the greater New York area.  Distinct from weekly seminars in its breadth and thematic cohesiveness, the series seeks to provide a glimpse into the questions and the insights that make up a cutting edge research, and to serve as a platform that sparks further interest and advance on the related research.
