- Our Impact
(2) to allow students to present research ideas or results and to get feedback
(3) to provide an opportunity to give a scientific presentation in a relatively stress-free environment
We especially encourage presentations that are geared toward a broad scientific audience that emphasize communication, your discoveries, and your passion for science! Simply put, this is a symposium organized by graduate students for graduate students. Sometimes, it’s all too easy to be surrounded by people who are doing amazing things at OSU and not have a clue what they are up to in their research hours. BGSS helps bring us together.
This year, we have the great pleasure of hosting Dr. Ricardo Letelier, Professor in the College of Earth, Ocean, and Atmospheric Sciences at Oregon State University. Dr. Letelier’s core research program focuses on understanding the world’s oceans at global and local scales. He uses multiple tools to study marine ecological questions, and has been a member of the OSU faculty for just over 20 years. In addition to his passion for marine sciences, he has a deep interest in the philosophy of science and offers a special-topics course at OSU on the subject. This will also be the topic of his keynote presentation at BGSS 2017. We are really looking forward to his presentation and appreciate his contribution to BGSS 2017!
