Wright Lab Workshop: Increasing your online presence in academia and beyond

This workshop, open to the Yale Physics community, will provide an overview of several tools that can be used to create your professional portfolio online, including: traditional websites and wikis; Github; web tools that display your research profile, such as Google Scholar, SelectedWorks, and commercial academic profiles; social media; and other related tools. In addition, Kayleigh Bohémier will provide a brief, hands-on tutorial on populating an ORCID page.

The Age of Living Machines: How Biology Will Build the Next Technology Revolution

With an anticipated world population of over 9.5 billion by 2050, we face an unprecedented challenge to sustainably provide sufficient food, water, energy and healthcare. Convergence, the merging of previously distinct disciplines, has emerged as a powerful model with untold potential to drive a new cycle of innovation-based economic growth. Bringing together insights and discoveries from the life, engineering, computation and physical sciences holds the promise of accelerating discovery and the development of new technologies to meet the 21st century’s needs.

What is a 'Cause,' and Why Does it Happen Before the Effect?

The physics of the time orientation of causation is more subtle than what it looks like superficially. For a long while it was reduced to a mere linguistic issue (a “cause” is just the term of a correlation that happens earlier, Hume). As emphasized by Russell, there is no time orientation in fundamental physics. But causation was later better understood as an essential notion in the context of an agent having choices, which after all is our own common context. This traces the time orientation of causation to the time orientation of agency.

Wright Lab APC Workshop: Introduction to design for rapid prototyping

In this workshop we will cover how to get started designing parts for your projects that can be made simply and quickly with a CNC cutter or 3D printer. No prior experience is required, but having an idea for a project that you may want to get started on would be great.

Yale Day of Data Spring Series: Language (Data) Is Everywhere! Linguistics and Language Data in Research

What kind of data do linguists use and how do they use it? Please join us for a panel that will get into the nitty gritty of linguistics data across a variety of subfields, from brain imaging to corpus analysis and beyond, moderated by Professor of Linguistics and 2020-2021 Model Research Collection Curator Claire Bowern.

Panelists:

- Robert Frank, Professor of Linguistics
- Maria Piñango, Associate Professor of Linguistics
- Natalie Weber, Assistant Professor of Linguistics
- Jim Wood, Assistant Professor of Linguistics

WIDG Seminar: Avinay Bhat, Syracuse University, "MeV Scale Physics in MicroBooNE"

This talk presents the first measurement of sub-MeV scale energy signatures and relevant backgrounds for beam neutrino interactions in MicroBooNE using a dedicated reconstruction technique. After introducing the Liquid Argon Time Projection Chamber technology and the MicroBooNE detector, I will highlight the main features of this reconstruction technique and the measurements carried out from beam neutrino data.
