Jenness highlights importance of HPC resources in biomass research at recent HPC Symposium Series presentation
Post-Doctoral Fellow Glen Jenness, VLACHOS Research Group, led the June session of the High Performance Computing (HPC) Symposium Series on June 24. Jenness introduced attendees to the Catalysis Center for Energy Innovation (CCEI)—a project that brings together individuals and research groups with different skill sets from institutions across the country to build a collaborative team. The goal of this multidisciplinary team is to tackle the problem of using biomass to generate renewable fuels and value-added chemicals. According to Jenness 30% of U.S. transportation fuels and 25% of organic chemicals can be produced from non-food-based biomass.

DHS and UD phishing test results highlight positives, room for improvement
University of Delaware IT has partnered with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to test the security of UD’s IT infrastructure and the awareness of its employees. As part of the DHS tests, a simulated phishing attack was launched against UD accounts. Three test phishing emails were distributed at random to 7,300 full-time and part-time employees to gauge preparedness for phishing threats. DHS and the University did not track which individuals clicked links in the test phishing messages. However, aggregate data revealed that approximately 25 percent of those who received a test phishing email clicked a suspicious link.

The Lerner College is home to a state-of-the-art financial trading facility, the $1.5 million student-led Blue Hen Investment Club, a student-managed restaurant and hotel, a high-technology development center of a global bank and a start-up experience for students with new business ideas.

Lerner College faculty - like Meryl Gardner, whose research on foods and moods was recently published in the Journal of Consumer Psychology - are thought leaders who command attention from influential business audiences, economists and policy makers.

All Lerner College departments offer discovery learning experiences and emphasize data-based analytics to enrich the student experience. Here, students at Vita Nova, our award-winning restaurant run through HRIM, joined professional chefs and winemakers in hosting a 2014 Mid-Atlantic Wine and Food Festival event.

The Institute for Financial Services Analytics is a collaboration between the Lerner College, UD's College of Engineering and JPMorgan Chase, and hosts events for academics and the business community designed to address consumer analytics and industry applications.

Undergraduate scholarships, made possible through the generosity of alumni and friends, enable us to support promising scholars. Here, Delaware Gov. Jack Markell and his mother, Leni Markell, join recipients of the William Markell Scholarship (center), which benefits students in Accounting and MIS.
