2019 El Dia Lightning Talks

Speakers & Topics (listed alphabetically & not in order of presentation)

New for 2019, Lightening Talks will showcase student research that is in progress, as well as undergraduate senior capstone projects. This is an opportunity for students to present on interesting science-related satellite projects.

  • Each talk is limited to 4 minutes.
  • There is no Q & A during this lightning round, so we encourage the audience to attend the Post-Award Reception to ask follow up questions!
  • Lightning Talk presenters are not eligible for oral presentation awards.
