Over the past century, the discipline of physics has expanded exponentially, crossing boundaries into areas as diverse as biology and engineering. Network scientists in the lab of Albert-László Barabási analyzed how this growth drives technological breakthroughs that improve our lives.
From a cyclone that knocked out swaths of the Indian Railways Network to the winter storms that brought the MBTA system to its knees, an urgent need exists for systematic strategies that speed the recovery of critical lifelines in the wake of disasters. Thanks to Northeastern researchers, that need is being met.
It’s not every day that a scientist gets a theory named after him. But when seismologists learned of Northeastern professor George Adams’s theory to help predict earthquake damage, they knew just what to call it: Adams Instability.
Students explored a wealth of research opportunities in a range of fields, from nanomedicine and environmental health to magnetic sensing and machine learning.
Eno Ebong, an assistant professor of chemical engineering, harnesses the power of multiple fields—from chemical engineering to nanomedicine—to lay the groundwork for treating vascular disease.
Five Northeastern student-researchers have retrofitted a rowing machine with an ingenious device, allowing people with paraplegia to exercise without the aid of a trainer.
Tianxiang Nan, a doctoral candidate in electrical engineering at Northeastern, has been selected to receive the 2015 Chinese Government Award for Outstanding Self-Financed Students Abroad.
An interdisciplinary group of Northeastern students and faculty have combined their knowledge of engineering and physical therapy to design, develop, and then deliver two low-cost communication devices to disabled kids living at a pair of orphanages in Ecuador.
The dedicated and tireless work of those in the Northeastern community who are on duty during snow days is the reason the campus has remained safe and operational during the snow blitz in recent weeks.
Current director Simon Pitts and founding director Michael Silevitch have been recognized for their dedication and innovative work educating and developing strong engineering leaders.
Victoria Suha, E’17, founded Northeastern’s student chapter of the Acoustical Society of America in her first year at Northeastern. Her dream job is to design symphony halls.
By developing dynamic legged robots that emulate animal movements, Boston Dynamics founder Marc Raibert, E’73, says machines will be able to reach new heights.
