Expertise: study of configurations of points and lines with high degrees of incidence and/or symmetry, especially developing new construction techniques and examples; study of abstract polytopes and their monodromy groups, with an emphasis on polytopes that are symmetric but not too symmetric; discrete geometry
Expertise: behavioral neuroscience with a focus on how the brain regulates adaptive and non-adaptive behaviors; a spontaneous and predictable mouse model of obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is used to understand the brain mechanisms that control the expression of OCD; the mouse model is also used for the testing and development of new drugs to treat OCD in people and OCD-like behaviors in pets, livestock, and zoo animals.…
Expertise: reconstruction of ancient ecosystems and climates through identification of pollen and spores preserved in lacustrine sediments or rocks
Expertise: research integrates fieldwork, analytical and spectroscopic methods, and quantum chemical modeling in order to characterize and quantify properties of electron transfer and photooxidation mechanisms on a molecular level, which has implications for better understanding the future of Arctic water quality and ecosystem health in a changing climate
Expertise: infectious Diseases such as Rabies and Tularemia; disease surveillance in Arctic Fox; rural Alaska monitoring program; incorporate research into academic programs
