  • A senior at the University of Hawai‘i at Hilo majoring in physics and astronomy has conducted research over the past year exploring galaxies and rare stars. He was awarded two research opportunities to conduct his inquiries that took him from UH Hilo to Notre Dame, building his skills and his résumé along the way.

    Tino Wells spent a year working with Kathy Cooksey, an associate professor of physics and astronomy at UH Hilo, on a project titled, “Non-parametric Clustering Analysis: Classifying Large-Scale Gaseous Structures in Circumgalactic Media to Establish Connections to Parent Galaxies.” The project was funded through Cooksey’s National Science Foundation grant during summer 2017 and a Hawai‘i Space Grant Consortium fellowship during the 2017–2018 academic year.

    Wells, who is currently applying to graduate programs in astronomy, believes that having the undergraduate research on his résumé will make him more attractive to admissions committees. He is grateful for the new skills he acquired.

    “This research requires everything, from the fundamental ideas in astrophysics, to the statistics, the multiplex of clustering algorithms and their inherent level of robustness, as well as software development,” he says. “You truly get a taste of everything.”

    As he pursues the next stage of his studies and research, Wells will leave with warm feelings for the Hilo campus.

    “In my opinion, this place is an absolutely perfect hub for astronomy and physics,” he says. “These are the best telescopes in the world, considering the altitude and how secluded they are, with the cloud layer blocking the city lights. And it’s a small school, so you can get personal with the professors and develop relationships, and the professors are motivated to get students involved and have them working on projects. So it’s a win-win.”

  • Dr. Grant Gerrish: The Plants and Vegetation of Maunakea from Tree-Line to Summit [Free Pubic Talk]

    The Maunakea Speaker Series continues this Thursday, November 15, at UH Hilo Wentworth Hall, room 1. This free lecture is open to the public and starts at 7 pm.
