Prof. Chis Wiggins has received an NOA Grant for the Center for Topology of Cancer Evolution and Heterogeneity. The Center - a member of the National Cancer Institute's Physical Sciences in Oncology Network - is a multidisciplinary, multi-institutional research center that supports research combining mathematical and experimental techniques for the study of cancer. Their team includes experts in cancer genomics, the genetics of brain tumors, developmental biology, single-cell genomics, machine learning, and topological data analysis.
The Columbia University Initiative on Extreme Weather & Climate presented a workshop on 5/6/15 on “Extreme Weather & Climate: Hazards, Impacts, Actions.” This workshop featured 15 speakers (including Adam Sobel, Michael Tippett, and Tim Hall) from across Columbia University’s many schools and centers, providing an interdisciplinary experience for participants interested in extreme weather and climate.
Prof. I.C. Noyan, APAM Chair, and Prof. Raimondo Betti, were featured in the Civil Engineering magazine article, "Subatomic Particles Aid Investigation of Large Bridge Components," by Laurie A. Shuster. "Researchers in diverse fields at Columbia University are shooting neutrons into bridge cables to reliably characterize their behavior when small wires inevitably break."
Michael Tippett and Adam Sobel were featured in the article, "Experimental Forecast Projects Tornado Season: A seasonal forecast of the devastating extreme weather event may be available as soon as 2016."
