March 4, 2014 — The University of Wyoming announced today (Tuesday) the creation of a new collaboration with Halliburton, a leading oil field services company. Halliburton is gifting $2 million to support the construction of a major new UW energy and engineering research complex. In addition, Halliburton is funding $1 million for research into unconventional reservoirs. Halliburton’s support will be doubled to $6 million through state of Wyoming matching dollars and the UW School of Energy Resources research match funding.
February 24, 2014 — If anyone deserves the designation of “pioneer” in the field of improved oil recovery (IOR), it is University of Wyoming Professor Norman Morrow, whose work in developing low-salinity flooding to unlock the secrets of oil and gas reservoirs and subsurface processes is appreciated and applied throughout the world.

UW Students Create Computer Model to Determine Surface Shade and Measure Snowmelt in Colorado River Basin
December 12, 2013 — In an attempt to measure snowmelt in a mountainous region northwest of Boulder, Colo., two University of Wyoming students are determining surface shade through a computer model they’ve created. They hope their high-performance computing research eventually can be scaled up for use on Mount Moran, UW’s high-performance computing cluster, and be a useful tool for modeling solar radiation for the entire Upper Colorado River Basin.
December 13, 2013 — In an effort to better understand the evolution of learning, Kai Olav Ellefsen is working to make robots learn more like humans. Specifically, he is studying how more modular brains allow robots to learn new tasks without forgetting what they learned from previous tasks.
