January PSA Monthly Event Kicking Off 2023 With a “Blitz”

The Postdoctoral Society of Argonne (PSA) kicked off this year’s events with the Blitz Science Talk on 13th January 2023 in Bldg. 203 Auditorium. In this event, organized by Khushi Bhatt, Rakesh Kamath, and the PSA social committee, 15 postdocs presented their research in a rapid communication format (2-minute talk) to the 40 in-person and online attendees.

Through this event, the PSA provided a platform for our postdocs to seek collaborators among their peers while sharpening their communication skills. A wide variety of research was presented, ranging from “No Nus is Good News” by Leslie Rogers (PHY) to “LibPressio: Storing, Moving, and Computing with Massive Datasets” by Robert Underwood (MCS). The event was followed by the year’s first in-person social event outside the auditorium in Bldg. 203 where Argonne postdocs engaged in friendly banter over snacks.
