The UC Merced student chapter of the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM) hosted the second annual Central Valley Regional SIAM Student Chapter Conference on April 7.
In only its second year, the conference attracted 85 participants from universities around Northern and Central California. Students from UC Merced, UC Davis, San Jose State and Fresno State came together to discuss their work with colleagues and collaborators.
Graduate students at the University of California, Merced, will benefit from extensive new research, funding and training opportunities, thanks to two National Science Foundation (NSF) grants totaling more than $3.25 million.
Interdisciplinary groups of computational sciences researchers won two of the 30 NSF Research Traineeship (NRT) program grants the agency is giving out this year. The grants will fund 50 doctoral students and train another 100 graduate students over the course of five years.
One of the most stunning sights in Yosemite National Park has nothing to do with granite. It’s the night sky, Milky Way and all.
But light pollution within the park can diminish that experience for visitors as well as change the circadian rhythms of flora and fauna.
