Discover the cutting-edge research of our brilliant graduate students at Rapid Fire Research 2023! Rapid Fire Research is an event in which Physics & Astronomy graduate students showcase their research in elegant, bite-sized presentations. It is also a competition — a panel of faculty judges will determine the most compelling presentations, and the winners will be awarded with prizes. This is a nice chance to listen to fun and delightful talks from a variety of fields and only happens once a year, so you won't want to miss it. We hope to see you there!

Describing your research in a clear, concise, and stimulating way is as much of an art as a science, and is crucial for getting that funding or landing that dream job. Rapid Fire Research is an event showcasing the physics and astronomy student research at Northwestern, with a focus on developing the skills necessary for constructing an elegant and simple pitch of your research. Presenters must be graduate or undergraduate students active in physics or astronomy research. Winning presentations will be featured on the Rapid Fire Research website and receive cash prizes.
