Nathan Jacobs at the McKelvey School of Engineering led a team that developed a joint learning framework to enhance two closely related computer vision tasks critical in autonomous driving applications.
Mark Waggoner, BSCE ’97, has a lot on his mind: wind, earthquakes, heat, snow and flight paths, to name a few. As a structural engineer, he thinks big — really big — which is crucial since he specializes in long-span roof design for professional sports facilities. While building a structurally sound roof is key (and aesthetics are […]
María Isabel Dabrowski, AB ’18, combines her fascinations with marine life and behavioral science as a senior outreach associate at Rare’s Center for Behavior & the Environment, the world’s first center focused exclusively on behavioral science and design as it relates to the environment. After graduating from WashU with a major in cognitive neuroscience, Dabrowski […]
‘After years and years …,’ a forgotten Christmas card from the late 1940s reveals the early genius of an Emmy Award–winning alumnus and his admiration for Mother Baird, a fraternity housemother.
Computer scientists led by Ning Zhang at the McKelvey School of Engineering developed AntiFake, a tool to protect voice recordings from unauthorized speech synthesis.
Research from Washington University in St. Louis shows that variations in pyrite sulfur isotopes may not represent global processes. A new microanalysis approach helps to separate out signals that reveal the relative influence of microbes and that of local climate.
Nathan Jacobs at the McKelvey School of Engineering developed a new framework for predicting the types of sounds that are likely to be heard at a given geographic location. Soundscape mapping has applications in urban planning and noise management, as well as in individual decisions about where to buy a home or establish a business.
Manel Errando, an assistant professor of physics in Arts & Sciences, has been awarded a $375,000 grant from the National Science Foundation to conduct studies of active galactic nuclei.
The WashU Sustainability Fund has launched to provide funding to WashU community members for small-scale sustainability projects.
Collaborative research from Rohit Pappu’s laboratory at the McKelvey School of Engineering sheds light on the role of temperature in RNA phase separation, particularly the heating and cooling required to form condensates.
