The United States has the most extensive freight railroad network in the world, and improving nationwide passenger rail systems. For any rail system (freight or passenger), safety is the top priority. This project explores the application of risk analysis techniques to ensuring the safe movement of people and goods by rail. The scope of this project is to conduct a comprehensive review on the state of the art and practice in railroad transportation risk management, and develop risk analysis approaches (...)

This propose study will investigate the benefits of feeding fish via duckweeds, as opposed to commercial feed. The use of duckweeds not only significantly affect the cost of aquaculture (1/3 of the cost is from feed), but it also alleviates pressure on wild fish population. Because of duckweeds, the expansion of fish farming does not imply more demand for commercial fishing of shell fish and small fish used to produce fish meals. Duckweeds also address water pollution created by the introduction (...)

This project uses a combination of observations and climate model projections to investigate how temperature and precipitation have been changing in high-elevation regions during the last 50 years as well as how they will change during this century. The research has implications for water resources, biodiversity, recreation, and natural resources in mountains and in their lower elevation surroundings. There is evidence in many regions that temperatures have been warming at faster rates at higher (...)

We conduct research on the cognitive and neural basis of language acquisition and processing. The underlying question we seek to address is: What makes human language special? More specifically, why are adults able to understand most sentences with ease despite the daunting computational problem posed by language processing?And why are most children able to acquire language with ease despite the seemingly intractable learnability problem posed by language acquisition? Undergraduates who join (...)
