Badgerloop is the UW–Madison team competing in the SpaceX Hyperloop Pod Competitions. The team is currently gearing up for the third iteration of the competition, which tests the speed teams can achieve with their hyperloop pods, and will reveal its latest pod design on Thursday, April 19 in Union South. Here are how two current graduate students have been involved in Badgerloop.
When Liliana Lule started college, she didn’t know she wanted to conduct her own research. Now, the UW–Madison senior is preparing to present on her latest project during Research in the Rotunda at the Wisconsin State Capitol before continuing her research as a graduate student.
Lule, who is a scholar in the Ronald E. McNair Postbaccalaureate Achievement Program, will be among the UW System students presenting on Wednesday, April 11 at Research in the Rotunda, the annual showcase of outstanding undergraduate researchers.
Twenty-six students from the University of Wisconsin–Madison, including 18 graduate students, have been awarded a Graduate Research Fellowship from the National Science Foundation.
The NSF fellowship program selects high-potential scientists and engineers in the early stages of their careers, providing awardees with support for graduate research training in STEM fields.
While pollination ecologists around the world study how declines in habitat and emerging diseases affect bees, researcher Vera Pfeiffer is looking for attributes of systems that can sustain these and other native pollinators in places with a large human footprint.
“There’s evidence that cities can support very diverse pollinators,” said Pfeiffer, a PhD student in the Nelson Institute for Environmental Studies’ Landscape Conservation Lab at UW–Madison.
As prospective graduate students plan their educational pathways, accessible data about graduate institutions is increasingly valuable to inform those decisions. A new, interactive tool from the Graduate School now makes existing data available in a user-friendly format.
UW–Madison welcomed a new cohort into the Edward Alexander Bouchet Graduate Honor Society March 20, when five outstanding doctoral candidates were inducted into the local chapter.
The Coalition for Next Generation Life Science has released its first round of data in a project that seeks to inform current and prospective life sciences students about their career options.
