With support from the National Science Foundation, cryptography expert Daniel Wichs, an assistant professor in the College of Computer and Information Science, will work as part of a multi-university team to develop better encryption techniques to improve cloud security.
Sarah Gignoux-Wolfsohn and Felicia Aronson, two student-researchers at Northeastern’s Marine Science Center, turned to crowdfunding to support their work on examining white-band disease, which has killed up to 95 percent of the Caribbean’s reef building corals.
In a new paper, Northeastern researchers show how they’ve used advanced computational data science tools to demonstrate that despite global warming, we may still experience severe cold snaps due to increasing variability in temperature extremes.
I’ve been procrastinating writing this post because, well, I’m not great with goodbyes. Here’s the thing: After an incredible two-and-a-half-year run at Northeastern, I’ve accepted a job at the Broad Institute, […]
Northeastern professor and network scientist Alessandro Vespignani—a world-renowned expert who has developed computational models to predict the spread of disease—discusses the recent outbreak of Ebola virus in West Africa.
New research from Purnima Ratilal, an associate professor of electrical and computer engineering whose expertise is in underwater acoustic sensing methods, provides high-resolution localization data of sperm whales swimming in shallow continental shelf waters.
Some scientists get to have all the fun. Last week my colleague Joan Lynch and I made the trip up to Nahant to visit with a team of marine researchers based at […]
This is a guest blog post by Craig Schmidt, a fourth-year undergraduate student in the College of Engineering and recipient of the prestigious Vertical Flight Foundation Scholarship. This summer he’s participating […]
This is a guest blog post by Eileen Sheehan, a biochemistry student at Northeastern University who is on co-op at Palmer Station, Antarctica. She will providing a series of guest […]
Northeastern graduate student Marissa McMahan is marshaling her scientific training and her family’s connection to the Maine lobster industry to research the black sea bass’ northern range expansion due to climate change.
Northeastern postdoctoral researcher Asanterabi Malima, PhD’13, received the Entrepreneurial Award during Massachusetts’ celebration of Africa Week in recognition of his founding a biotech firm and developing a device that enables early, low-cost disease detection.
Alice Bonner, an associate professor of nursing at Northeastern and a national leader in Alzheimer’s disease care research, will lead the university’s efforts as part of an initiative aimed at providing more support services to people with Alzheimer’s and their families and raising awareness about the importance of early detection.
