For more than 30 years, students in Northeastern’s Three Seas Program have been diving in unique locations across the globe while advancing their knowledge of marine science.
Northeastern Huskies took to the tide pools on Sunday, Sept. 10, for the Nahant Coastal Bioblitz, an annual public survey of marine life on the beaches surrounding the Northeastern University Marine Science Center (MSC) in Nahant, MA.
Congratulations to Ashley Bulseco-McKim, graduate student at Northeastern’s Marine Science Center, and one of the recipients of the NSF Doctoral Dissertation Improvement Grant (DDIG). This grant funds a graduate student to further study a specific area of his/her dissertation research.
In a paper published in Nature Communications, Northeastern University Professor Jennifer Bowen and University of Rhode Island Professor Laura Meyerson reveal that a native type of the common reed (Phragmites australis) has more in common with other native populations of the plant growing elsewhere across the country than they have in common with invasive types occupying the same ecosystem.
An international crew of scientists, including graduate student Alek Razdan, recently returned from a two-month expedition to the Antarctic Ocean. Razdan works with professor Hanumant Singh to build autonomous underwater vehicles.
Marine and Environmental Science graduate Emily Snead has used her unique and worldly Northeastern experience to guide her career path, and her hard work has earned her the Women Builders Council 2017 Next Generation of Women Builders Award.
We asked Northeastern’s Daniel Douglass, lecturer in the Department of Marine and Environmental Sciences and an expert in glacial geography, to explain why ice shelves form, what causes them to crack, and how they affect the environment.
A linguist with the U.S. Navy for six years, Sarah Nelson was drawn to Northeastern for its academic strength in her areas of interest, which are physics and geology, its co-op program, and its longtime commitment to supporting the education and career advancement of military veterans.
Biology and geology major Sarah Braun was recently named a recipient of the Muckenhoupt Scholarship, a scholarship given to a student who, “will use their training in science to benefit the environment of the earth and the life upon it.”
Cole, a fifth-year PhD student in Professor Rebeca Rosengaus’s behavioral ecology lab at Northeastern University, spends much of her day collecting census data from termite colonies that she’s cultured in the lab. Termites are some of the most socially organized animals on the planet.
