With a full-time job and a family, Jordan Acevedo knew it wouldn’t be easy to go back to school to change careers. UWM’s online program made it possible.
University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee astronomer David Kaplan and colleagues have begun a radio search for the magnetic fields of planets orbiting distant stars. The team reported its initial findings in “A search for circularly polarized emission from young exoplanets,” published in the Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society. The astronomers conducted a search of star […]
UWM alums Julia Robson and Alyssa Armbruster are going to hike 332 miles from Milwaukee to Lake Superior, stopping at locations the Environmental Protection Agency has identified as “areas of concern.”
The research has the potential to fundamentally advance our understanding of biological processes inside cells. UWM physicists developed algorithms to reconstruct sequential images of viruses too small to photograph.
When the National Parks Service wanted know if spring was coming earlier at many national parks around the U.S., it turned to the USA National Phenology Network (USA-NPN), an online environmental change-tracking resource cofounded by Mark D. Schwartz, UWM distinguished professor of geography. The National Phenology Network provides Start of Spring maps and tools that […]
UWM’s School of Freshwater Sciences is launching a project to sequence and analyze the DNA of important Lake Michigan species, providing data that scientists and others can use to better preserve and protect precious natural resources.
The UW System Board of Regents is honoring Jean Creighton, director of the Manfred Olson Planetarium, for spreading knowledge of space to thousands of children and adults in Wisconsin.
UWM’s School of Freshwater Sciences is a partner in a new research institute focused on sustainable management of the Great Lakes. The Cooperative Institute for Great Lakes Research represents a partnership between nine universities across the Great Lakes region, plus nongovernmental organizations and private businesses. CIGLR is led by the University of Michigan and funded […]
This third detection comes less than two years after UWM scientists and LIGO colleagues around the world confirmed a major prediction of Albert Einstein’s 1915 general theory of relativity.
