Undergrads Win Mathematical Modeling Competition

Congratulations to students Beau Horenberger, Danny Bugingo and Ned Caisley for taking first place in the 2018 Montana Mathematical Modeling Challenge (MMMC). This year's competition took place Oct. 20-21, at Carroll College in Helena, Montana. The U of I team finished first for both the oral presentation and the written paper. This feat has only happened twice in 10 years and earned the team a $300 cash prize. The MMMC presents teams with two, open-ended real world problems and gives them 24 hours to choose and solve one of them using a mathematical model. At the end of the 24 hours, teams submit papers and give 10-minute presentations describing their solutions. This year's MMMC featured 14 teams from four institutions (U of I, Washington State University, Montana State University and Carroll College).

Researchers Publish Findings About Retirement Investment Decisions

Who can make an informed retirement investment decision? Research by U of I Associate Professor of management and human resources Yun Chung and Associate Professor of finance Young Park explores this question. The Journal of Consumer Affairs recently published their study, "What I Know, What I Think I Know and Whom I Know: Influence on Retirement Investment Decisions." Chung and Park found that individuals who are not only knowledgeable of financial investment but also have strong networks with financially knowledgeable persons are likely to increase equity allocation and improve investment decision quality that ensures individuals' retirement wellbeing. They also found that the effect on equity allocation is likely to be reinforced only when individuals who are financially knowledgeable believe that they are.

Feature Stories

Building a Degree

Upon walking into the tasting room of Hat Ranch Winery in Caldwell, visitors find a wall made of deconstructed wine barrels. U of I architecture major Catherine Flerchinger designed and constructed the wall as part of a larger project by the College of Art and Architecture’s (CAA) design-build studio: a tasting room and outdoor pavilion for the winery. “The insides of the wine barrel sections retain the deep purple color of the wine, and the pieces lay over each other like fish scales to form a textured wall that covers the plumbing panels,” the 22-year-old senior from Lewiston said. “It’s been fun seeing Instagram pictures of visitors in front of it. Some parts of the wall even pop out to serve as a coat rack.” Read more.

Researchers Publish Nature Comment on Using Biomimicry to Coexist with Fire

College of Natural Resources' Alistair Smith and Crystal Kolden with colleague David Bowman from the University of Tasmania outline new strategies to live with fire in a recent comment published in Nature Ecology and Evolution. The researchers argue that to co-exist sustainably with fire, human communities need to take the lead from nature and adapt to the fire regimes in which they reside. They propose finding solutions through biomimicry – imitating the ways that flora, fauna and many indigenous cultures have used to live with fire. Examples include developing building materials that exude fire-retardant chemicals when heated and moving critical resources underground like the fictional subterranean "hobbit holes" of “Lord of the Rings.”
