Heat Treatment for Development of Ductile FRP Composites

Fiber-reinforced Polymer (FRP) Composites have gained widespread use in civil, mechanical, and aerospace applications. However, a major drawback of FRP materials is (unlike steel and aluminum, &) is...   Details

High-Speed Microscope Observations of Feeding Biomechanics in Zooplankton

For planktonic animals living in the oceans one part in 10,000,000 parts of water is food. How does a typical zooplankter separate the food from the water without losing the particle of food?...   Details

Home Activity Database and Modeling

The prupose of this project is to collect home activity data to create a database to be used in the development of a home activity modeling and prediction tool using smartphone technology. In home...   Details

How Self-Selected Activities Affect Daily Blood Pressure and Moods

This project will assess 1) if engagement in self-selected activities improves ensuing daytime and nighttime cardiovascular and affective responses and 2) if low scores on psychological risk factors...   Details

How psychosocial stress affects sleep and the physical body

My project involves collecting and analyzing survey and physiological data related to stress physiology, health disparities, and potential solutions to those disparities. For instance, I am examining...   Details

Hybrid Nanomaterials for Gas Sensors

The objective of this project is to synthesize various (SnO2, Ag) nanoparticles using a mini-arc plasma reactor and to assemble the aerosol nanoparticles onto carbon nanotubes (CNTs) for sensor...   Details

Hydroturbine Research

Over 70% of the 84,000 dams in the U.S. will soon be older than 50 years and at or near the end of the their designated life cycle. This project contributes adding additional renewable energy sources...   Details

Identifying allostatic load in African American childbearing women in an electronic health system

Using the stepwise approach proposed for this study will result in an evidence-based construct for allostatic load. The results will inform the development of a method for determining a valid...   Details

Identifying the molecular mechanisms through which sex steroid hormones enhance memory

The objectives of this study are to identify the neurobiological mechanisms in the brain through which sex steroid hormones enhance memory. The project will use female mice to examine which...   Details

Imaging of Protein Interactions Using Forster Resonance Energy Transfer and Laser Scanning Microscopy
