Research Lecture Series
The PhD Program Research Lecture Series (DPRLS) is a unique learning opportunity that emphasizes the acquisition of specific research knowledge, skills, and competencies. With its academic focus, the lecture series exposes doctoral students to a range of substantive, methodological, and statistical topics identified by doctoral students themselves as areas in which additional training is needed. The overall aim of the series is to enhance the research training of current NYU Silver PhD students.
Presenters at the series include senior Silver School faculty, as well as other renowned researchers from NYU and beyond. Current PhD students may also present their research through “science chats,” allowing them to contribute to the DPRLS while gaining valuable presentation experience. DPRLS workshops are offered during the fall and spring semesters.
The PhD program held the following presentations in Spring 2020:
