Openings Available in Inaugural REDA Class

Applications are being invited for the new professional master's program in Resource and Energy Demand Analysis. Prospective students will have until May 31 to complete their applications.
Set to launch in late summer, the innovative program provides an accelerated track into a burgeoning job market, including the many firms in the Madison area doing energy consulting. "REDA is much more than a data analytics training program,` says director Bill Provencher. "It will teach students the economic intuition to become skilled evaluators. The employers who have looked at our curriculum are already contacting us about our first round of graduates in June 2016."

Desludging Dakar through group dynamics, cell phones, and altruism

For children living in the outskirts of Dakar, Senegal, playing a game of street tag often entails something distinctly unpleasant — dodging puddles of raw sewage. Millions of people have no access to modern sanitation systems and contaminated water can lead to diarrhea, the second-most common cause of infant death worldwide. UW-Madison associate professor of Agricultural and Applied Economics Laura Schechter is crafting meticulous mathematical models that explore economic decision-making through the lens of human trust, reciprocity, and altruism. Her work is transforming the way that neighborhoods in the underserved outskirts of Dakar dispose of their sewage.
