Seven faculty members receive 2008 H.I. Romnes award

Seven UW-Madison faculty members received the 2008 H.I. Romnes Faculty Fellowship Award on March 18.  


Fellowship recipients were Jennifer Angus, Michel Guillot, Alexander Ionescu, James Schauer, Laura Schwendinger, Emily Stanley and Jeremi Suri.  


The Wisconsin Alumni Research Foundation fully funds the prestigious award given to faculty members who have earned UW-Madison tenure within the past four years. Each received $50,000 for future research and independent working opportunities.  


I plan to use the Romnes to help support the composition and recording of a new String Quartet for the Corigliano string quartet, as well as the recording of several other works,"" Schwendinger, a human ecology professor, said.  


Guillot, a sociology professor, plans to use the money to fund students.  


""I will also use some of it as seed money for research projects in order to obtain future grants that would allow me to eventually fund more graduate students,"" Guillot said.

Schwendinger said she is proud of her work commissioned by the Miller Theatre at Columbia University and by the Harvard Musical Society. 


Guillot has established himself as one of the leading young demographers in the world by producing a body of research in formal demography. 


""I think some of my publications in the area of formal demography were instrumental, but also my on-going project in former Soviet Central Asia, which is covering totally unknown territory from a demographic standpoint,"" Guillot said.
