 "Fixing model problems, with a focus on singular algebraic surfaces"

With Dani Brake

A slicer, which takes a 3d model and generates instructions for a 3d printer, requires a good model.  What's a good model?  It's water tight.  It has no holes.  It has a well-defined interior.  Good models are hard to produce.  Even high-quality modeling software can produce flawed objects.  Let's talk about where these flaws from from, and some ways to fix them.  The speaker, Assistant Professor of Mathematics Dani Brake will draw on their experiences with singular algebraic surfaces as motivation.  A discussion panel is anticipated.

Thriving on Foodservice:

Gotta have that caffé macchiato with two shots of expresso to wake up your brain and get through the morning? Do you frequently catch colds or flu? Shawn Seuferer, Vitalistic Protocol, LLC, presents a fast-moving 1-hour educational and entertaining demonstration, “Thriving on Foodservice.” She will explore possible reasons for fatigue, brain fog, restlessness, poor sleep, cravings– AND how to select nutritious foods to support your health and energy while in college!


Shawn Seuferer serves faculty, staff and students in the Administrative Support and Knowledge (ASK) Center here at UWEC. She has been at UWEC since 2007 in the offices of ORSP, CETL, and Foundation with a short break (working) at the Community Corrections Intake Office.

Outside of the university, Shawn wears many hats in her busy life.

Having a Master’s degree in Horticulture (science of the cultivation of plants), Shawn’s early career was spent in university horticulture and in industry research and consulting which exposed her to the use of nutrition to manipulate plant growth.

Years later, and now as a certified Nutritional Therapy Practitioner, Shawn speaks at schools and organizations and serves clients at her private practice, Vitalistic Protocol, LLC, in Eau Claire.

She has been married 25 years to Mel and has one daughter, Anna who lives in River Falls. Shawn and Mel live on Prosper Farm with 38 ornery sheep (some of whom have names which are not to be spoken here), 40 pesky chickens, 4 entitled cats (Rascal, Destarde, Wally, Tiger), and 2 disobedient dogs (Curly, Boomer).

Finally, Shawn is a 20-year cancer survivor who has a life mission of empowering others on their journey to wellness. She does so by educating about, restoring with, and connecting people to

nutritious foods and clean water.
