Seeking Adults 35+ for Paid Smartphone and Eye Tracking Study on Emotion

The Lifespan Emotional Development Lab at Northeastern University is recruiting for a research study on emotions in adulthood. We’re looking for healthy men and women ages 35+ with no history of psychiatric or neurological problems. Are you 35+? Do you have an Android smartphone or tablet? Would you like to earn up to $200 for your participation? Participation in this study occurs over the course of one year and requires…

AIM Seminar: Topological Entropy Three Ways: new efficient algorithms for measuring fluid flow complexity

Speaker: Spencer Smith (Department of Physics, Mt Holyoke College) Abstract: Mixing in non-turbulent 2-dimensional fluid flows is due to the repeated stretching and folding of material lines. The exponential rate of increase in the length of these curves provides a fundamental measure of flow complexity. This presents an interesting challenge in the case where our knowlege of the fluid flow is through sparse data: Given a set of trajectories and…

Three-dimensional Bioprinting for Tissue/Organ Regeneration

Sushila Maharjan, Ph.D Research Fellow, Brigham and women’s Hospital Three-dimensional (3D) bioprinting is a group of rapidly growing technology that has potential applications in tissue engineering and regenerative medicine. This technology allows the precise placement of cells, biomolecules and biomaterials in spatially predefined locations within confined 3D structures, therefore achieving recapitulation of microstructure, architecture, mechanical properties, and biological functions of target tissues and organs. Bioprinting technologies are classified into three…

Department of Physics presents CIRCS Seminar

CIRCS: Wrinkles in Thin Solids Benny Davidovitch Department of Physics, UMass Amherst Confining thin objects, such as rods, sheets and shells into a volume smaller than their lateral size typically generates in them stress. Relaxation of this stress often gives rise to the formation of complex patterns - wrinkles, crumples, folds, and so on. This general description spans a broad range of natural phenomena, such as tissue-shaping instabilities in animal…

Colloquium/AIM Seminar: Mathematical aspects of Topological Data Analysis

Speaker: Peter Bubenik (Dept of Math, University of Florida) Abstract: Topological Data Analysis (TDA) is a new approach to analyzing complicated geometric and/or high dimensional data. The central mathematical object of TDA is the persistence module, which can be understood using the language of a number of different branches of mathematics. It turns out that taking an applied viewpoint on this algebraic object leads us to new mathematics. I will…

Northeastern University Energy Conference

The objective of this conference will be to address pressing energy issues and how to mitigate them collaboratively. Join us as we gear up for a day ripe with opportunity to explore the very latest in either of 2 tracks: Technology, and Business and Public Policy, with 4-panel discussions each, showcasing technological strides made by academia and how the industry has applied it. We are privileged to have 2 industry…
