In rat models of drug addiction, we study suppression of the immune system, both systemically and in the brain, and measures of behavior in conjunction with the animal's emotional state, measured via ultrasonic vocalizations that rats emit. Because of the wide range of immunomodulatory effects of opioids and the ongoing opioid epidemic, it is imperative to have a better understanding of the immunosuppressive effects of opioid abuse.

Can you imagine viewing our world through the Ironman's helmet? Do you want to build a helmet that can be used to solve the problem of environmental disasters? Students in this project will use a machine vision camera -- Hyperspectral Camera to survey the environment and develop computer programs to help recognize the evidence of environmental incidents, such as floods, pollution, and building energy uses.

The project uses historic maps to identify streams which may have been lost, buried, moved or altered in ways that are not currently known. The historic maps, dating back to the eighteenth century, are digitized and georectified to allow the researchers to use them within a geographic information system. The maps are then compared with contemporary USGS NHD Plus stream data to identify places where the two sources diverged. Areas of great divergence are then further investigated with a combination (...)

Nanomaterials and nanotechnologies are now widespread in all branches of engineering and science, from health care and cosmetics to solar batteries and fuel cells to drug delivery and biotechnology. Nanomaterials are composed of building blocks dimension of which varies from 1 to 100 nm. In order to understand the specifics of structural, transport, and thermodynamic properties at such small scales, we apply the computation methods of molecular and dissipative particle dynamics (MD and DPD) and (...)

Bridge decks are the most critical element of the highway infrastructure for maintaining it in the state of good repair. Steel orthotropic bridge decks (SOBD) have the potential for improving durability and extending service life of highway bridges. Steel orthotropic bridge decks are a stiffened steel plate deck system that is integral with the primary floor framing of the bridge superstructure. The deck plate for SOBD are stiffened by elements having open or close sections. Accordingly, the orthotropic (...)
