Seminar 217, Risk Management: Sustainable Responsible Investing and the Cross-Section of Return and Risk
Seminar | February 19 | 11 a.m.-12:30 p.m. | 1011 Evans Hall
Speakers: Saad Mouti, UC Berkeley
The identification of factors that predict the cross-section of stock returns has been a focus of asset pricing theory for decades. We address this challenging problem for both equity performance and risk, the latter through the maximum drawdown measure. We test a variety of regression-based models used in the field of supervised learning including penalized linear regression, tree-based models,... More >
Seminar | February 19 | 11 a.m.-12 p.m. | 120 Latimer Hall | Canceled
In this talk I will first present unpublished work highlighting our current structure-based efforts to understand how small molecules interact with G protein coupled receptors (GPCRs). I will then show how these structural insights can facilitate GPCR drug discovery.

Colloquium | February 19 | 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m. | Alumni House, Toll Room | Note change in location
Dr. Selena Couture, University of Alberta
Dr. Couture's talk will discuss the increasingly frequent practice of Indigenous land acknowledgments in Canadian society and what implications this might have for local practices in the Bay Area. Through an engagement with methods and theoretical understandings from the field of performance studies, she examines when and how land acknowledgments can be decolonizing and when they can contribute...

SPH Brown Bag Research Presentation: Citizenship health inequalities across the US: State-level immigrant policies and health care access
Seminar | February 19 | 12-1:30 p.m. | 1102 Berkeley Way West
Maria-Elena Young, Chancellor's Post-doctoral fellow, University of California, Merced
In this talk Dr. Young presents findings from two studies that examine how citizenship status and immigrant policies influence inequities in access to health care. Immigrants who lack citizenship are less likely to have health insurance and access to health care compared to citizens. Citizenship status is a form of inequality that is shaped by the policies that determine immigrants rights and... More >

By year 2021, the number of existing wireless electronic devices is expected to be four times greater than the worlds human population. They will be used for countless smart applications that are nearly unimaginable today. However, the range of functions these devices serve across applications is very broad, often having widely different device requirements and tradeoffs. This seminar presents... More >

Representation Theory and Mathematical Physics Seminar: Integrable systems of spin Calogero-Moser type related to symmetric spaces, Part II
Seminar | February 19 | 4-5 p.m. | 748 Evans Hall | Canceled
Nicolai Reshetikhin, UC Berkeley
We define the action of infinitely generated Temperley-Lieb algebra on the category of representations of the supergroup \(P(n)\). The supergroup in question is an interesting super analogue of the orthogonal and symplectic groups. As an application of this construction we get algorithm computing characters of irreducible representation of \(P(n)\) and some other esults. As n tends to infinity,... More >

Sarah Chasins, Ph.D. Candidate, UC Berkeley
In this talk, Ill describe how I reformulated traditional web PBD around the insight that demonstrations are not always the easiest way for non-programmers to communicate their intent.
Seminar | February 19 | 4-5 p.m. | 120 Latimer Hall
Soft interfaces such as ice or those containing multiple species are common in biology, the environment, and technological applications. Probing these, particularly when the interface is buried between two condensed phases presents many challenges. The only current method available to probe such interfaces with molecular specificity is the vibrational spectroscopy, sum frequency generation (SFG).... More >
The Return to Form: a panel on Caroline Levine's FORMS: Whole, Rhythm, Hierarchy, Network (Princeton UP, 2015)
Panel Discussion | February 19 | 5 p.m. | Wheeler Hall, 315, Maude Fife room
Is literary criticism undergoing a "return to form," and can that be understood as something other than a retreat? Can close reading be deployed to analyze more than literary works of art, can its scope be broadened to include the analysis of sociopolitical experience? Were that so, could literary criticism intervene in and alter arrangements of power?
In Forms: Whole, Rhythm, Hierarchy,... More >
