Guilherme Rosa, professor of animal and dairy sciences, has been awarded the prestigious Kellett Mid-Career Faculty Fellowship Award. Rosa works on data analytics for improved efficiency and sustainability of livestock systems. Current projects include computer vision techniques for precision livestock farming, use of genomic information for genetic improvement of herds, and predictive modeling and causal reasoning using experimental and observational farm data.
UW-Madison recognized eleven faculty with Kellett Mid-Career Awards to support those who are seven to 20 years past their first promotion to a tenured position. The award was created to provide support and encouragement to faculty at a critical stage of their careers. The honor, named for the late William R. Kellett, a former president of the WARF board of trustees and president of Kimberly-Clark Corporation, comes with $75,000 that may be spent over five years.
In all, thirty-three members of the University of Wisconsin–Madison faculty were awarded fellowships for 2021-22. The awardees span the four divisions on campus: arts and humanities, physical sciences, social sciences and biological sciences.This article was posted in News.
