Fluid Dynamics & Biomechanics: Observing Zooplankton Behavior in the Presence of Micro Oil Droplets

Aquatic Food Web - fresh and marine water are the biota of micro-zooplankton feeding on algae and other suspended particles. Zooplankton, such as copepods and daphnia, act in turn as food sources...   Details

Fluidic Dynamics and Biomechanics: Observing Zooplankton Behavior in the Presence of Micro-bubbles

Micro-bubbles are known to be generated in aquatic environments by a variety of processes including: water turbulence, temperature and pressure changes, and chemical dispersion. Their presence has...   Details

Fluorometry/Time-Lapse Deconvolution

The student will be using the fluorometer to analyze concentrations of fluorescent compounds in tissue. These compounds are used as indicators of metabolic activity, which fits in with our lab's...   Details

Foreign direct investment and publicly available information: calculating a country information index
