Jeff Blanchard and his Oxford collaborator Jared Tanner release compressed sensing software.
Professors Jeff Blanchard, Joe Mileti, and Jen Paulhus spent some, or all, of spring break working on research outside of the United States.
Jeff Blanchard visited a collaborator in Edinburgh for a week of intensive writing for an ongoing project. The trip to Scotland paid off with a 50 page paper submitted at the end of Spring Break.
Courses take students around the world, such as biology students studying in the Namib desert and economics students exploring South Korea's rise.

The Science Teaching and Learning Group (STaLG) is an open discussion group that has been meeting regularly for a number of years. Our goal is to provide a place where science faculty from all disciplines, as well as others involved science education at Grinnell, can come together for informal conversations, brainstorming and strategy-sharing on a variety of topics in science teaching and learning.
The mission of our programs is to prepare students to ask and answer scientific questions that nobody has even thought of yet. Our graduates need to be able to learn new scientific information from primary sources, formulate and ask smart scientific questions, interpret the answers nature gives to those questions, and communicate the results to others in effective ways.
Each semester we hire four or five students as writing lab managers. Each works one more full morning or afternoon shift and helps us maintain an effective and efficient operation.
Notice will appear in the Campus Memo when we are hiring. If you wish to apply, please complete the application form below.
Grinnell, IA -
Grinnell College student Alice Nadeau has been awarded a Goldwater Scholarship for up to $7,500 toward tuition and other expenses during the 2012-13 academic year. The Barry M. Goldwater Scholarship Program was established by Congress to encourage excellence in science and mathematics for American undergraduate students with excellent academic records and outstanding potential.
Nadeau, a third-year mathematics major from Waterloo, Ia., plans to pursue a Ph.D. and teach at the university level. “I am currently trying to explore as many areas of mathematics as available to me,” Nadeau said. “This is important in both teaching and research since connections and correlations can and frequently do come from outside one’s own specific field of study.”
As a Grinnell student, Nadeau serves as a student assistant for the Grinnell Science Project pre-orientation program; works in the costume studio for the theatre department; swims for the varsity swim team; and is an active participant in student government.
Grinnell student Rebecca Mandt, a third-year biology major from Mendota Heights, Minn., was named honorable mention in the competition. She plans a career in biomedical research.
Grinnell College is a nationally recognized, private, four year, liberal arts college located in Grinnell, Iowa. Founded in 1846, Grinnell enrolls 1,600 students from all 50 states and from as many international countries in more than 26 major fields, interdisciplinary concentrations, and pre-professional programs.
The facility includes refurbished teaching and research laboratories, classroom and office space, a science library, a computer laboratory, and several study areas. The addition connects two of the wings with a courtyard in between. The building houses the departments of biology, chemistry, mathematics and computer science, physics, and psychology. Containing modern scientific equipment and instrumentation, the facility has laboratories, classrooms, and seminar rooms, which are equipped with electronic and other modern instructional tools. The building also houses the Kistle Science Library and the Physics Historical Museum. In the northeast section of the building, a greenhouse is used as an instructional and research facility.
