Focus on faculty research
Dr. Drew, assistant professor of Biology, has been awarded a prestigious National Science Foundation CAREER award, which recognizes young, on-the-rise faculty members. The award provides $850,000 over 5 years to fund Drew's work on clownfish and its symbiotic relationship with the sea anemone.
The National Science Foundation has awarded $300,000 to Prof. Geoffrey Cowles of SMAST and co-investigator Prof. Luigi Martinelli of Princeton University, in cooperation with Ocean Renewable Power Company, to assess the performance of tidal energy turbines and their interactions with the marine environment.
The 400 MHz Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) spectrometer plays an important role as a research and academic resource, opening up possibilities across departments and the university.
Dr. Aminda O'Hare of the Psychology Department uses tasks of cognitive control to assess her subjects' abilities to stay focused on a task both when emotion is present and when it's not.
A research project to improve underwater microphone arrays also highlights opportunities for student research in the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department.
