The Graduate School and the Society of Duke Fellows are hosting the fifth annual Duke GradX talks, an event showcasing graduate research. Students are invited to share their research in a fast-paced and engaging format inspired by TED and TEDx talks. Rather than showcasing finished projects, we ask presenters to share a defining question that they are driven to investigate or explore further. Presenters are challenged to communicate their ideas in a clear, visually appealing way that is understandable to a broad audience in the short time frame of 5-6 minutes.
