Manipulation and Spectroscopy of Nanoscale Emitters

This research aims at trapping nanoscale objects and even single molecules in solution using an electrostatic trap developed in my research group. The ability to manipulate objects at the nanometer...   Details

Mapping the Migration of Gestures: Locating the Body in Digital Encounters in Dance, New Media, and Installation Performance

My long-term project, Translating Metaphor Through Embodiment, will narrow in on the reciprocal nature of the body and environment within interdisciplinary practices and new media collaborations. A...   Details

Market versus government

A student could benefit through participation in this research on the overlapping boundaries of economics and political philosophy.   Details

Material Sustainability

Primary objective is to map locations of material resources that relate to the construction, maintenance, and operation of buildings (residential and commercial), and develop a web accessible...   Details

Mathematical Modeling of Drug Delivery in the Brain Vascular System

Many drugs are administered to the major transport organ of the body, the blood. Dissolved in the plasma, they have to cross the endothelial cells that line the capillaries. In contrast to other...   Details

Matlab Research

Matlab is a "model based design" computer language, that is very powerful for algorithm development and verfication, but not fast. Over 1,000,000 engineers and scientists use Matlab. Matlab...   Details

Measure of Cortical Inhibition Modulated by Task Requirement

This study will measure cortical inhibition by measuring muscle activities (EMG) upon application of transcranial magnetic stimulation on the cortex of a person. We will investigate whether the...   Details

Measuring American Buddhism

The objective is to construct a quantitative portrait of Buddhism in the United States. The approach will be to compile data from published sources and to collect membership figures from Buddhist...   Details

Measuring Static and Dynamic Power Grip Strength

This pilor project will demonstrate maximum voluntary contraction (MVC) differences between static and dynamic power grip exertions. MVC for static grip strength is widely reported; hwoever, many...   Details

Measuring the permeability of swelling porous media made from superabsorbent polymers

The objective is to conduct flow experiments in swelling porous media, which are made from superabsorbent (SAP) polymer granules and fibers. Such porous media have an ability to absorb incredible...   Details
