I have received occasional supplemental support from the University of Maine Office of the Vice President for Research to help support undergraduate research assistants, which helped establish my research group. In addition, the following specific awards funded particular projects.
- IT Faculty Technology Stipend, ``Using an iPad as a Chalkboard Replacement,'' Spring/Summer 2012. $1250, UMaine Dept. of Information Technologies.
- IT Faculty Technology Stipend, ``Bug-Sim: Foraging for Food in Spatially Structured Virtual Worlds,'' Spring/Summer 2007. $1250, UMaine Dept. of Information Technologies.
- Faculty Summer Research Fund award, ``Pair Approximations of Biological Invasion Models on Clustered Heterogeneous Landscapes,'' summer 2005. $7500, UMaine Office of the Vice President for Research.
- IT Faculty Technology Stipend, ``Development of a `Complex Systems' Demonstration Simulation Suite,'' Spring/Summer 2004. $1250, UMaine Dept. of Information Technologies.
- Learning Circles grant, ``Beginning Development of a Demonstration Simulation Toolbox,'' November 2003. PI: David Hiebeler (Math); co-PI's: Larry Latour (Computer Science), Raymond O'Connor (Wildlife Ecology), Jim Wilson (Marine Sciences and Resource Economics), and Liying Yan (PhD student, Computer Science). $500, UMaine Center for Teaching Excellence.
Support has been provided by the Mathematical and Theoretical Biology Institute (MTBI), a summer research program held at Arizona State University, run by Carlos Castillo-Chavez. Specifically, MTBI has supported 2-3 students each year to attend the summer program since summer 2005 (Dr. Hiebeler's NSF grants have also supported students to attend beginning in summer 2008), and hired Dr. Hiebeler as an instructor and research mentor each year since 2006. Cooperation with MTBI has greatly helped with training student research assistants and advancing the SPEED Lab's research agenda.
MTBI's funding was provided by The National Science Foundation, award number DMS-0502349; The Alfred P. Sloan Foundation; The National Security Agency, award number H98230-06-1-0097; and Arizona State University.
