Bay Area carbon footprint map
Jan 07, 2014 UC Berkeley NewsCenter Suburban sprawl cancels carbon-footprint savings of dense urban cores
According to a new study by UC Berkeley researchers, led by professor Daniel Kammen of the Energy and Resources Group and Nuclear Engineering, population-dense cities contribute less greenhouse-gas emissions per person than other areas of the country, but these cities’ extensive suburbs essentially wipe out the climate benefits
Big-data center launch
Dec 13, 2013 UC Berkeley NewsCenter Big turnout for launch of big-data center
It was standing room only in Sutardja Dai Hall’s Banatao Auditorium, with many more watching monitors in the overflow section, at Thursday’s high-energy launch of the Berkeley Institute for Data Science.
Bruce Beasley and Rondo II
Dec 10, 2013 UC Berkeley NewsCenter Mining Circle sculpture finds a permanent home on campus
Sculptor and Berkeley alumnus Bruce Beasley’s “Rondo II” sculpture is now a permanent part of the UC Berkeley landscape, thanks to a gift that will keep it in the reflecting pool in front of the Hearst Memorial Mining Building.
Nanomagnetic switch diagram
Nov 18, 2013 UC Berkeley NewsCenter Could magnets end the era of transistors?
New work by Berkeley Engineering researchers could soon transform the building blocks of modern electronics by making nanomagnetic switches a viable replacement for the conventional transistors found in all computers.
Big data institute
Nov 13, 2013 UC Berkeley NewsCenter New data science institute to help scholars harness ‘big data’
The Moore and Sloan Foundations are putting $37.8 million toward a new data science initiative to advance data-driven scholarship in the social and physical sciences. Their five-year million grant will be shared by UC Berkeley, the University of Washington and New York University to encourage collaboration on new ways of supporting researchers and students to mine today’s data flood for new discoveries.
Mark Freiberg
Nov 06, 2013 UC Berkeley NewsCenter New measures to make Berkeley labs, workshops safer
Mark Freiberg, executive director of the campus Office of Environment, Health and Safety, discusses new University of California policies on personal protective equipment and lab safety training and how they will affect UC Berkeley researchers.
Oct 11, 2013 UC Berkeley NewsCenter Crowdfunding symposium to address innovation in social finance
A new symposium from Berkeley Engineering's Fung Institute will explore the world of crowdfunding, an increasingly popular financing model that harnesses the power of social networks to raise money. The event will be the campus’s first international academic symposium on the innovative funding technique that has allowed small businesses and start-up ventures to raise needed capital.
Personal thermal image
Aug 27, 2013 UC Berkeley NewsCenter Office too hot or cold? Researchers aim for comfort, energy efficiency
Researchers at Berkeley, including EECS professor David Culler, are refining a new set of tools that will enable more efficient temperature control in commercial buildings by using input from building occupants, a network of web-based applications, and a user-responsive Personal Comfort System.
Sather Gate
Aug 26, 2013 UC Berkeley NewsCenter New scholarship program supports students in STEM fields
Eight talented first-year Berkeley students, notable for their extraordinary achievements in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM), and their commitment to giving back to their communities, are being rewarded by a new scholarship program announced by Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc. and the campus
Brown dwarf star
Aug 20, 2013 UC Berkeley NewsCenter New theory points to ‘zombie vortices’ as key step in star formation
Computational physicist Philip Marcus, professor of mechanical engineering, and a team of other fluid dynamics experts at UC Berkeley have proposed a new model of how “zombie vortices” help lead to the birth of new stars.
NSSC summer conference
Aug 15, 2013 UC Berkeley NewsCenter Berkeley hosts nuclear science and security conference
Challenges and careers at the intersection of nuclear science, technology and public policy are prime topics this week as budding scientists and seasoned experts gather at UC Berkeley for the inaugural Nuclear Science and Security Consortium Summer School. The consortium is directed by Jasmina Vujic, professor of nuclear engineering.
MoS2 experimental photodetector
Aug 02, 2013 UC Berkeley NewsCenter Auto lubricant could rev up medical imaging
Berkeley Engineers have built a device that could speed up medical imaging without breaking the bank. The key ingredient? An engine lubricant called molybdenum disulfide, which has been sold in auto parts shops for decades.
