Andrew Belt won the Outstanding Presentation Award at the Joint Mathematics Meetings in San Antonio. This conference is considered the largest mathematics meeting in the world, with more than 6000 participants.
Andrew is a Math Honors student, double majoring in math and physics. Andrew’s award is for a poster on joint work in kinetic theory (mathematical physics). He accomplished this during a Research Experience for Undergraduates last summer, at UCLA’s Institute for Pure and Applied Mathematics.

Art Works is the NEA’s largest funding category, supporting the creation of art that meets the highest standards of excellence, public engagement with diverse and excellent art, lifelong learning in the arts, and the strengthening of communities through the arts. Matching grants generally range from $10,000 to $100,000. In fiscal year 2014, the NEA supported 1,799 grants totaling $49.4 million through Art Works. The deadlines for Art Works applications are February 19 and July 23, 2015, depending on the artistic discipline and/or type of project for which an organization seeks support.

One of the key holdups in the march toward more efficient sustainable energy could soon be answered thanks, in part, to UT researchers.
The College of Engineering’s Alexander Papandrew and Gerd Duscher are part of a broader Oak Ridge National Laboratory-led team that recently received a $2.75 million Department of Energy grant for work on improving fuel cells, $1.4 million of which went to their project.
Two professors who have advanced social good and welfare through their work have been honored by the Society for Social Work and Research.
Bill Nugent and John Orme, both faculty members in the UT College of Social Work, are 2015 fellows of the national organization.
