Both graduate and undergraduate students participate in a variety of research and educational opportunities in the Link Lab.

Programs, Events, and Resources

  • Link Lab Committee on Culture and Livability

    The Link Lab Committee on Culture and Livability is a student-run committee that aims to elevate the Link Lab experience, for both residents and non-residents. The committee strives to encourage comradery among the diverse Link Lab group through professional and social events and serve as the liaison between students, staff, and faculty.

  • P3: PhDs Practicing Presenting

    P3 is a seminar series for early Ph.D. students (in their first couple years) to hone their presentation skills. This every-other-week informal event is a chance for newer Ph.D. students to practice research presentations and get supportive feedback from peers and faculty.

    Basic information:

    • When: Every-other Thursday, 4-5pm
    • Where: 211 Olsson

    Students are expected to prepare a 10-15 minute talk with slides on a technical topic they are working on. During the seminar session, one or two students will present and take a couple questions, and the remainder of the time is for constructive feedback from the audience. Students are welcome to provide specific areas they are trying to focus on and would like feedback in.
