Mechanical and Industrial Engineering (MIE) Professor Yung Joon Jung, along with co-principal investigator Associate Professor Swastik Kar of the Department of Physics, has been awarded a $200K grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) for an interdisciplinary research project that uses nanotechnology to create highly sensitive and marketable detectors of radioactivity and nuclear radiation.
In a paper published in Nature Physics, Northeastern University Department of Physics Arts and Sciences Distinguished Professor Alain Karma, in collaboration with his postdoctoral research associate Chih-Hung Chen and Professor Eran Bouchbinder of the Weizmann Institute of Science’s Chemical Physics Department, discovered the mechanism that causes cracks to behave strangely when they spread very rapidly in brittle materials.
Physics lecturer Alessandra Di Credico gives some insight as to what’s actually happening.
Stress and fear have far-reaching effects that start in the brain and permeate an individual’s life in lasting ways. Together with the Dalai Lama and other experts, Northeastern neuroscientist Rebecca Shansky is confronting trauma head-on in an effort to help communities in Africa heal from conflict.
Northeastern University is in partnership with four universities to develop the next generation of forensic science tools for government agencies, non-profits and private industry.
Jennifer Greenwich, Biology PhD candidate, sits down with the College of Science Graduate Program staff to talk about what it’s like to work and study at Northeastern University.
Professor and Department Chair Michael Pollastri of Chemical and Chemical Biology sits down with the College of Science Graduate Program staff to talk about his research at Northeastern University.
Four undergraduate students were the first to receive the Undergraduate Research Award for Women in Physics at the annual Department of Physics awards dinner, and will now have the opportunity to complete exciting research with Northeastern faculty members.
Meet Yaa Kyeremateng, a behavioral neuroscience major who speaks multiple languages, conducts research, is fascinated with the brain, and has modeled for the past year. Here, she discusses these aspects of her Northeastern experience and why “adaptability” is perhaps her strongest trait.
The Hannover Exchange Program has provided opportunities for international experiential learning for 30 years. Thanks to grant support from the German Academic Exchange Service, this long running program sends German Master’s students to Boston to work in Northeastern labs, as well as sends Northeastern undergraduate co-op students to work in labs at the Leibniz University of Hannover.
