A number of philosophers, futurists, and technologists have come to believe that we are living in a computer-simulated world, kind of like a real-life version of The Matrix. But physics professor Dmitri Krioukov explains why he’s not part of that camp.
Assistant professor Leila Deravi takes an interdisciplinary approach to investigating the proteins that drive complex biological systems and building materials in the lab that replicate those systems. Among her research projects are optical displays inspired by squids and a face cream that strengthens skin proteins to reduce wrinkles.
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.
Bio-inspired materials chemistry is a fascinating field that focuses on understanding natural biological systems and mimicking their properties in synthetic materials. An NSF grant will allow new Northeastern University professor to continue her research on cephalopods.
Kat O’Brien spent a few months in Alaska on co-op with the Fisheries, Aquatic Science and Technology Laboratory.
Associate professor of physics Brent Nelson has joined with several colleagues from around the world to argue that dark matter is not a weakly interacting massive particles.
Psychology professor Lisa Feldman Barrett provides perspective on the intensity of our emotions this election season, how the campaign might affect us psychologically over the long term, and how we can regain our equilibrium as individuals and as a nation.
A biology professor and bioinformatics graduate student are among a large group of international researchers who authored the recent publication.
We’re terrible at self-control, psychology professor David DeSteno will tell you. But, he adds, it’s what controls your success.
