WGN meteorologist Tom Skilling and his production team visited Fermilab on May 4 to record weather promos by the bison and in front of Wilson Hall. The videos will be used throughout the spring and summer on WGN-TV.

Portrait of a man with dark hair and a short beard and mustache wearing glasses, a brown corduroy jacket, a red and blue plaid shirt. His hands are interlaced on the table in front of him. In the lower left corner, the keyboard of a laptop peeks out. He is in front of a starry background.

What if human analysis, combined with machine learning, could advance the study of the universe? The U.S. Department of Energy awarded Fermilab scientist Brian Nord a $2.5 million Early Career Research Award to explore that possibility. Nord has envisioned a new hybrid data-analysis method to undertake the project. It integrates the strengths of artificial intelligence and interpretations of statistics in ways that could potentially advance the studies of cosmology.

Previously vice provost for undergraduate education and professor of physics at the University of Illinois, the new chief research officer will lead research on the international Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment, advancing scientific excellence.
