Alysia Ramos Performs Duet
Assistant Professor of Dance Alysia Ramos performed her duet "Time Certainties Peace" at The Ohio Dance Festival on April 29, 2017, in Columbus, Ohio. This work, inspired by Paolo Coelho's text "The Good Fight" was made in collaboration with Ghanaian dancer Mustapha Braimah. Through dance and text, the work addresses the challenge of enduring in the fight for one's dreams in spite of obstacles both without and within. Oberlin Conservatory students Aliya Ultan (cello) and Patrick Graney (percussion) composed and performed musical accompaniment for the piece.
Richard M. Salter Presents, Collaborates
Professor Emeritus of Computer Science Richard M. Salter joined his colleague, Professor of Environmental Science Wayne M. Getz (University of California, Berkeley) to present a week-long workshop at Hong Kong University. The workshop entitled "Population Modeling/Quantitative Ecology Workshop using the NOVA Computational Software Platform," presented the mathematical techniques used in population modeling and demography, as well as resource, movement, and disease ecology, and showed how they can be applied to simulations created with Salter's Nova modeling system. Attendees were able to obtain hands-on experience with the new Nova 3 version of the software, which will make its appearance in Oberlin in the fall.
Salter is also continuing his collaboration with Oberlin College Professor of Psychology Nancy Darling. The pair are putting the finishing touches on a chapter that will appear in an upcoming book on collaborative modeling.
