January 17, 2023

CIVS Ph.D. student Sam Nielson conducted the first weekly student seminar of the new year on January 13th by discussing tools for literature reviews and reading journal papers.

This weekly CIVS student event provides valuable exposure to industry standards and practices each Friday in the immersive theater. Sam addressed methods such as identifying effective academic journal papers and organizing active projects with the goal of creating reliable habits for students engaged in various CIVS research projects.


“I learned that any scientific paper should have enough easily absorbable information to replicate and hopefully validate its findings. That is the best kind of paper one can write.”
