  • Big-game migration research led by a recent UW Ph.D. graduate received national recognition from the Ecological Society of America. The research provided the first empirical evidence that ungulates (hooved mammals) must learn where and when to migrate -- and that they maintain their seasonal migrations by passing cultural knowledge across generations.

    The study, led by Brett Jesmer during his doctoral studies in ecology at UW, is the winner of the 2019 George Mercer Award from ESA. The award recognizes an outstanding, recently published ecological research paper by young scientists. The study appeared in the journal Science in September. Jesmer, who graduated from UW in 2018, is now a postdoctoral researcher at Yale University.

    Congratulations, Brett!

  • Today is #EarthDay and a time for all of us to stop and think about our planet. From an unexpected angle, students in the Advanced Apparel Construction Class are working on projects that up-cycle clothes and materials that are often discarded or wasted.
    .
    .
    The instructor for the class, Ivy Thompson, didn’t see this just as another lesson for the students wanting to learn how to construct clothing. But for them to look at it as a business too. So one student is up-cycling women's dresses into different garments, one is taking advantage of the high disposal rate of Disney clothing, and another is making pants for athletes.

  • A UW student will have an opportunity to continue his research that focuses on improving how forest fire smoke is represented in climate models.

    Hunter Brown, a second-year Ph.D. student from Juneau, Alaska, majoring in atmospheric science, is the recipient of a Department of Education (DOE) Office of Science Graduate Student Research (SCGSR) Program Award. In all, 70 students from 52 U.S. universities received SCGSR awards this year.

    “I am honored and excited to be considered for this award. It provides a unique opportunity for me to further my understanding of global climate models through collaboration with some of the world’s pre-eminent modeling scientists,” Brown says. “I also look forward to contributing something to these models, helping to create a more detailed picture of how smoke in our atmosphere plays a role in global and regional climate.”

    Congratulations, Hunter!

  • MONSTERS IN GREECE: Incoming freshmen will have the opportunity to explore Greece as part of a unique first-year seminar (FYS) class! The Monsters in Greece FYS will have three parts: a pre-trip online component, 10 days spent in Athens, and a weekly in-person class upon returning to Laramie.

    Monster beliefs are found in every culture in the world. They might be representations of natural forces, even nature itself (dragons, for instance), and might be a useful way to think about humans by representing what humans are not (vampires and other immortal creatures, for instance). There will be a special focus on Greek monsters, including those appearing in "The Odyssey" and in contemporary Greek culture.

    Known as “Hollywood’s Master of Light,” Debevec is a senior scientist at Google VR and has been honored twice by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences for his work in capturing and simulating how people and objects appear in real-world illumination. The technology has been used in blockbuster films such as the “Matrix” series, “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button,” “Terminator Salvation,” “Avatar” and “Blade Runner 2049.”

    Debevec will speak Thursday, April 11, at 5 p.m. in Room 306 of the University of Wyoming’s Classroom Building. The talk, which is free and open to the public, will feature his work, specifically light fields and light stages for photoreal movies, games and virtual reality (VR).
