In this biweekly seminar, PhD students of CeNS and of the Faculty of Physics present their current research to their peer students followed by scientific discussions in an informal atmosphere.

Science Rocks! takes place every second Thursday at 17:45 in the seminar room N110 of the LMU physics building (Kotthaus/Rädler). All graduate students of CeNS and the Faculties of Physics and Chemistry are invited to listen to the speakers who present the fascinating aspects of their doctoral research. After the talk, there is time for scientific discussions and further exchange to strengthen the network of PhD students of CeNS. The initiators of Science Rocks! are Prof. Tim Liedl and Jun.-Prof. Alex Högele.

PhD students Lorenz Huber, Markus Weber and Matthias Zorn are responsible for the organization of the event. You can contact them if you have questions about the event or if you would like to give a talk in the upcoming semester!
