Call for presentations for symposium on diverse communities and climate change

The interdisciplinary PhD in the Built Environment at UW is organizing a one-day symposium on April 26th around the theme of “Giving Voice, Being Seen: Community Agency and Design Action in a Time of Climate Change.” This symposium provides a forum for examining the intersections of climate change, urbanism, and environmental justice, and the ways in which diverse voices contribute to or are excluded from climate change conversations. The symposium invites presentations and projects that are addressing the ways in which diverse communities are being affected by climate change, and the role of diverse communities in design and climate change. If interested in participating, please submit a brief abstract by March 12th. Please see the attached PDF for more details.

Recommended Reads for Equity

Please join in Odegaard Library’s new project: Recommended Reads for Equity.

Recommended Reads for Equity engages the UW community in critical conversations, reading, critical thinking and community building; all of which are essential to lifelong learning and engaged citizenship. Guided by the UW community, Odegaard Library will collect recommendations for books about equity, diversity, and inclusion and create opportunities to share recommendations and hold conversations and discussions as a whole campus community. The community’s recommendations will be used to build a new book collection in Odegaard Library, ultimately creating a lasting legacy of UW’s commitment to equity.

We are currently accepting recommendations through our online form. We’d love to hear your reading recommendations! Submit online at https://tinyurl.com/reads4equity.

Please feel free to share the form with colleagues and students within your networks. If you have questions or comments, please contact Odegaard staff members Emilie Vrbancic at vrbancic@uw.edu or Steve Weber at seweber@uw.edu. This project is sponsored by a UW Diversity and Inclusion Seed Grant and the University of Washington Libraries.

REMINDER: 2018 Undergraduate Research Symposium – Application open! (due Feb.13)

Dear Students,

The application for the 21st Annual UW Undergraduate Research Symposium is now open! The Sym­po­sium will be held on May 18, 2018 in Mary Gates Hall.

The Symposium is a celebration of undergraduate accomplishments in research, scholarship, and creative expression in all academic disciplines. Students may present their research either in a poster session or an oral presentation session. We will also have a dedicated performance space in nearby Meany Hall for performing arts presentations and a visual arts and design showcase in Odegaard Undergraduate Library. Last year, over 1,200 students participated in this exciting event.

To learn more and start an application, visit the Under­grad­u­ate Research Sym­po­sium sec­tion of the URP web­site. All UW under­grad­u­ates involved in research are encouraged to apply. The application dead­line is Feb­ru­ary 13, 2018.

Interested students are also encouraged to attend one of our upcoming Abstract Writing Workshops to assist you with your application.

Not yet involved in research? Vol­un­teer or stop by on the day of the event to learn more about the research that UW under­grads are par­tic­i­pat­ing in, from projects in syn­thetic chem­istry to new ideas in the realm of dance.

If you have any questions, contact urp@uw.edu.

P.S. You need not have results of your research by the February application deadline – In fact, most students will not have results until May. Come to an Abstract Writing Workshop to learn more about how you can write a compelling abstract for your in-process project!

Best,

URP Staff

Green Dot Bystander Training for students!

 

Implementation of a bystander intervention training has been shown to significantly decrease sexual violence and also other forms of interpersonal violence perpetration and victimization (Coker AL, et. al., Am J Prev Med, 2017 May; 52(5): 566-578). We all have an important role in establishing that power-based personal violence is not welcome in our communities.

 

You’re invited to join us for our upcoming Student Green Dot Training!

cbf3601b-bf5f-4f49-83de-363ba3848a0e.png
Sign Up Here!
Green Dot Trainings engage students as leaders and active bystanders who step in, speak up, and interrupt potential acts of violence. We will examine the dynamics of interpersonal violence, barriers to intervening, and explore creative solutions for intervening.

Applied Mathematics Seminar on Thursday Feb 1 at 4pm

Professor David Masiello will give a seminar this Thursday February 1, see below.  David is an adjunct in Applied Math and was Niket Thakkar’s thesis advisor.  He is interested in recruiting other Applied Math students to work with him, so this talk may be of particular interest to PhD students looking for interesting and challenging problems.
It should also be of general interest and all are welcome!
———————————————————–
Time:  4:00pm on Thursday February 1, 2018
Place: Wan Conference Room, Lewis 208
Speaker:
  David J. Masiello
  Associate Professor of Chemistry
  Adjunct Associate Professor of Applied Mathematics
Title:
  Probing the Optical Responses in Metallic, Alloyed, and Semiconductor
  Nanostructures with Fast Electron Spectroscopy

In this talk I will discuss the prospects for using a scanning transmission electron microscope (STEM) to probe the optical excitations in metallic, metal alloy, and semiconductor nanostructures.  In particular, I will describe how the STEM electron probe can simultaneously excite and spatially resolve the full spectrum of electronic excitations in these systems, providing greater information than standard far-field optical probes.  I will then discuss our efforts in constructing associated analytical models and numerical simulation tools to elucidate a variety of experiments in plasmonics and nanophotonics and use this as an opportunity to highlight a number of our recent experimental collaborations.
