Pizza Lunch is our the weekly gathering of the Astronomy Department to make announcements, learn about visitors for the week and (most importantly) talk to each other about science we're interested in. Visitors are invited to tell us a little about what they are working on (chalkboard-style for 5-10 mins or less), but the majority of the time is reserved for local faculty, research scientists, postdocs, grads and undergrads. Please contact the Greg Bryan (or the organizer for a particular day in the table below) if you are interested in speaking, or want to suggest someone else as a speaker (or fill out the table at the bottom of this page).
