TAP Initiatives

As the TAP expands, new conversations are developing around broad theoretical topics. Several groups meet regularly to provide short talks on current research, discuss new directions, and to encourage collaboration on projects of mutual interest among TAP members across physics, astronomy, and planetary science departments.Talks are informal and geared towards sharing research and identifying collaborative opportunities.

All TAP members are welcome and encouraged to join these conversations. Please contact the lead person for more information and meeting dates.
