Kudos to Bill Miller, assistant professor in the Department of Art and Design, who has had two videos selected for upcoming international screenings and exhibitions. The animated videos, “Phantoms” and “Phantoms 2” use data collected in the UW-Whitewater Motion Capture Studio for animated cloth simulations that display drawings created with traditional materials by Miller.
Kudos to Lynn Gilbertson and Donna Vosburgh, who received a WISys Technology Advancement grant for their proposal, “Development of a Novel Method for Measuring Occupational Noise Levels in the Ear Canal, Phase 2.” Gilbertson, assistant professor of communication science and disorders and Vosburgh, assistant professor of occupational and environmental safety and health, designed and tested a set of low-cost accessories for adapting the 3M Edge 5 dosimeter to measure noise levels in the ear canal. The team was awarded a WISys Prototype Development grant in 2014-15 for the first phase of the prototype.
Kudos to recent UW-Whitewater graduate, Alexis Baker from Fountain City, Wisconsin, who recently received the American Chemical Society Award in Organic Chemistry. Alexis, who graduated last Saturday, has been accepted at the Medical College of Wisconsin and will begin its M.D. program this fall.
