Our weekly journal club is a fun way to learn more about the field of optics and practice your presentation skills in a low pressure environment among your peers. Currently we meet on Fridays at 4pm on our MS Teams Journal Club channel. Nervous to present right away? Don’t worry! We welcome new members to come by and participate anytime during the semester, then decide if you would like to sign up with the next round of presenters or not!
