Tammy Walton, Ph.D. candidate in the experimental nuclear physics program at Hampton University, will give the talk "Dancing with Neutrinos."

Abstract: Is it better to dance in the rain or in neutrinos? Walton's presentation will not only answer this question, it will also explain how physicists study the movements and behaviors of, neutrinos, one of the fundamental and least understood particles that make up the universe. Get an overview of the history and properties of the neutrino and a discussion of the important role that the neutrino plays in nature.

The talk is hosted by the Kearns Center for Leadership and Diversity in Arts, Sciences, and Engineering. For more information, visit
