The project will utilize both a computational (bioinformatic component) with lab-based behavioral studies of departmental colonies of insect pests. Computational tools will be used to look at differentially expressed genes and a behavioral approach will be taken to observe expression of these genes in specific behaviors. This project will be an intersection of the use of genetics as a tool to studying insects and the implications of gene expression on behavior and evolution of pest species.

Sol-gel processing is a room temperature process that forms transparent materials. When the materials are soft, patterns can be embossed in the material. Following heating, the material becomes hard. Many material applications require precise patterns on their surfaces. This project investigates new patterning techniques using the sol-gel process.

Social media is one of the most important tools used to expand advantages and enhance strategies in both business and academia. In this project, we will be looking to explore the role of social media in collaborative learning environments, specifically in STEM courses. We will conduct a survey through the Rutgers Office of Diversity & Academic Success in the Sciences (ODASIS), analyzing its impact on academic performance and cognizing students’ perception on social media and mobile devices through (...)
