A group of UWM researchers is part of the collaboration of scientists that used 13 years of data to find what could be the first direct detection of low-frequency gravitational waves.
A close look at social media could not only provide a window into what voters consider the most important issues, it could also give insight that might improve political polling.
Fifty-seven scientists at UWM are listed in a ranking of the top 2% of scientists in the world in a study by Stanford University.
If you wanted to look for life on planets around stars other than our sun, known as exoplanets, you would first locate the ones in the “Goldilocks zone.” That’s the area – not too close, not too far – at just the right distance from a star where a planet might have liquid water.
Katherine Du, a UWM assistant professor of marketing, wondered if framing the act of giving as a choice between two options worked better than the traditional request – and, if so, why.
A report from the Helen Bader Institute for Nonprofit Management at UWM found that 40% of arts nonprofits in Wisconsin have been forced to provide programs or services at a “severely reduced” capacity.
In Kenya, a country where one in four people lacks access to electricity, charcoal is a staple fuel source. It’s light, small, easy to store, burns longer and hotter than wood, and is nearly smokeless. It’s also speeding up the country’s deforestation.
Researchers have detected a signal from what may be the most massive black hole merger yet observed in gravitational waves, an event that created a behemoth 142 times that of the sun.
The LIGO-Virgo Collaboration recently discovered an object denser than neutron stars and less dense than black holes. So what does that mean? One of the UWM researchers explains.
A research team led by Lucy Mkandawire-Valhmu has a received a $2 million federal grant for a project that will support increasing access to medical forensic care and training to help mainstream health care providers and victim advocates deliver culturally sensitive services.
