Researchers working with Randall Martin at the McKelvey School of Engineering quantified changes in global air pollution from fine particulate matter. They found that global PM2.5 exposure decreased steadily from 2011 to 2019, largely driven by rigorous air quality management in China and slower growth in other regions.
Bradley Jolliff in Arts & Sciences is part of the team that will develop the surface science plan for Artemis III, the first crewed lunar landing mission in more than 50 years.
Jessica Wagenseil, a professor of mechanical engineering and materials science and vice dean for faculty advancement in the McKelvey School of Engineering, has been elected a fellow of the Biomedical Engineering Society.
Erik Henriksen, an associate professor of physics in Arts & Sciences, is part of a team that was awarded funding from the National Science Foundation’s Quantum Sensing Challenges for Transformational Advances in Quantum Systems program.
Lauren Wiseman-Jones, a graduate student of biological anthropology in Arts & Sciences, is studying how wild mountain gorillas respond to social and human-caused stressors. She won a Leakey Foundation grant for the work.
Chenfeng Ke, an incoming associate professor of chemistry in Arts & Sciences, developed a unique design for tough but stretchable hydrogels, reported Aug. 23 in the journal Chem. The new material is both flexible and durable.
Volcanic eruptions can cause the Pacific Walker Circulation to temporarily weaken, inducing El Niño-like conditions. Human activity is affecting this system, too.
Ramesh Agarwal, a professor of mechanical engineering & materials science, and Yixin Chen, a professor of computer science and engineering, both in the McKelvey School of Engineering, have been elected as fellows of the Asia-Pacific Artificial Intelligence Association (AAIA), an interdisciplinary organization of AI industries.
A study from biologist Elizabeth Mallott in Arts & Sciences highlights a critical development window during which racial differences in the gut microbiome emerge. Early social and environmental exposures can have large and lasting effects on child development and adult health.
The American Astronomical Society honored William B. McKinnon of Arts & Sciences for outstanding contributions to planetary science, including his work to propose and develop a series of novel ideas that profoundly changed the view of geophysical processes in the solar system.
