from past years:


Each week the department hosts a leading expert in physics or a related field, from inside or outside Tufts, to speak and answer questions about his or her work. The talks are designed to be accessible to anyone with undergraduate physics knowledge. They are an important part of our intellectual community, offering an opportunity to come together and learn about the most exciting current developments in and around our shared field, from the people who are making them happen.

Unless otherwise noted, all colloquia will be held at 12pm Eastern on Fridays, with a half hour virtual reception at 11:30am.
