COSAM Interdisciplinary Colloquium

Come learn about the research going on in COSAM 

In an effort to promote the graduate research community within COSAM, the COSAM Interdisciplinary Colloquium was established by Dr. Frank Sturm, a Mathematics graduate student (PhD 2014), and Dr. Hector Corzo, a Chemistry graduate student, in the Spring of 2013. The Interdisciplinary Colloquium offers graduate students the opportunity to share their insights on their field of study and the impact of their research to a broader COSAM community. The talks given are brief, 15 minutes with 5 minutes for questions, in hopes of encouraging participation of students from COSAM as well as the general Auburn student body. Each colloquium has 3 speakers from the various COSAM departments and is typically scheduled at 5:30 pm on the first or second Tuesday of the month during the Fall and Spring semesters. If you are interested in giving a talk at one of the upcoming colloquia please contact one of your COSAM GSC senators. For more information or any questions please contact Lori Scott at or Jamonica Moore at
