Who needs Punxsutawney Phil? A new forecasting tool created with models built by UWM climatologist Mark Schwartz just may put the spring-predicting groundhog, who may or may not cast his shadow on Feb. 2, out of work.
The LIGO observations of gravitational wave over the past two years were groundbreaking. Now, UWM astronomers plan to build off that work by employing a new tool to decode more mysteries of the sky.
A water sensor developed by an entrepreneur and the manager UWM’s Water Technology Accelerator is a finalist in a NASA competition that seeks to spur creation of new technology. The sensors could have application in space as well as on Earth.
As a student at UWM, Avi Shaked benefited from a scholarship that enabled him to focus on his studies. That’s why he feels so strongly about giving back. Donations from him and his wife, Dr. Babs Waldman, have helped lift UWM’s engineering program.
UWM Engineering & Applied Science Dean Brett Peters accompanied Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker on a trade mission to Israel last month, and they returned home with a signed letter of intent to collaborate on developing new water technology. Under the agreement, the Water Equipment and Policy Center and the Zuckerberg Institute for Water Research at […]
Chen, a distinguished professor of mechanical engineering at UWM, is among 3,300 researchers from 900 institutions who have produced a high number of papers that rank in the top 1 percent most-cited in a field over an 11-year period.
The Murchison Widefield Array recently announced the completion of an expansion that quadruples the radio observatory’s size, giving it a 10-fold increase in observing power. That’ll please a lot of folks at UWM.
At the far reaches of the Earth, UWM geologists are exploring the forests that once covered what is now Antarctica some 260 million years ago. They’re hoping to find clues to explain the mass extinction that snuffed out 90 percent of the world’s species.
The mating behaviors of some bird species, such as the greater prairie chicken and the tree swallow, are not as monogamous as they seem at first. UWM scientist Peter Dunn is untangling the mysteries at the UWM Field Station.
Proteins are the workhorses of genetic instruction, carrying out every function needed for life. UWM biophysicist Ionel Popa is untangling the mysteries of how proteins work, which could provide valuable insight into disease.
