Hannah Bergam was recently awarded the Muckenhoupt Scholarship, an award for students who, “will use their training in science to benefit the environment of the earth and the life upon it.”
Daniel von Staats entered Northeastern University without knowing what he wanted to do. After guidance from a faculty member and studying in the Caribbean he knows what he wants to do after graduation.
Randall Hughes, Assistant Professor in the Marine and Environmental Sciences department, has been awarded the prestigious National Science Foundation Faculty Early Career Development Award.
Erin Cole, a PhD student studying how termites interact with the offspring they produce. She recently won an award for her research.
For many, reading about complex scientific research and innovation can be a daunting task. But the students behind NU Sci—Northeastern’s student-run science magazine—are working to change that.
Red snapper is one of the most heavily exploited fish species in the United States and has been overfished for three decades. Postdoctoral research associate Jon Puritz investigated the causes behind the fact that genetic diversity among young in red snapper is observed even on very small spatial scales.
Julia Renner, a marine biology major, is spending Fall 2016 at the Martin Ryan Marine Science Institute at the National University of Ireland – Galway.
Last week, an international agreement established the world’s largest marine protected area in Antarctica’s Ross Sea. Northeastern’s William Detrich, an expert in marine molecular biology, calls the sea one of the world’s “very few pristine marine ecosystems” and says the protected area “will serve as a natural laboratory for assessing and forecasting climate change on Earth.”
Nobel laureate and Distinguished University Professor Sir Richard John Roberts argues that despite what you may have heard, GMOs are safe and have the potential to save lives in developing countries.
For ecological forecasters like Northeastern’s Brian Helmuth, mussels act as a barometer of climate change. That’s why Helmuth created “robomussels”—tiny robots that look like mussels but are outfitted with sensors to track temperature conditions.
