Code Cracker: How ’43 Grad Helped US War Effort

Dorothy Ramale ’43, who will turn 100 next month, was well-known as a math teacher and an IUP Alumni Association president. Until recently, many didn’t know she cracked enemy codes for the US military during World War II. In honor of Women’s History Month, here is her story.
Yongtao Cao, Mathematical and Computer Sciences, has written a paper on monitoring the SARS-CoV-2 virus in wastewater and has created an app to predict the number of COVID-19 cases for a given SARS-CoV-2 concentration level in the wastewater.
The US Department of State has selected Jimalee Sowell, PhD candidate in the Composition and Applied Linguistics program, to assist with a project that prepares English language teachers from Central Asian countries to present their research at international conferences. 
Gwen Himes has been invited to present her research, which examines the role of putti—small, naked boys, sometimes with wings—in Baroque art, at the SUNY Undergraduate Research Conference in April.
Featured in the #EberlyAmazingStudents series, Allison Wolfe says the Management Department has prepared her well for a career in human resources.
Jeremy Waltman, Communications Media, recently published Weatherworn, an adventure game for players of all ages, to the Steam platform. He is also producing a full-color prequel comic book.
Amanda Poole, Anthropology, coauthored “Why Eritrean Refugees Choose Risky Migration to Europe” for the Conversation. The article addresses why so many refugees engage in irregular onward movement despite grave risks and the presence of programs intended to stop them from migrating.
