The Arctic region is one of the most vulnerable areas to climate change and is already exhibiting dramatic changes in ecosystems, oceans, land and sea ice. Many of these changes will, in turn, have widespread implications. In particular, the rapid increase in Greenland ice sheet surface melting is now one of the current leading drivers of global sea level rise. In this project, students will examine Greenland ice sheet with quantitative and geospatial methods. Specific project topics may include (...)

Literary thought—both theory and criticism—is the prerequisite for situating literature and its function in a society, especially one that viewed letters as its preeminent civilizing enterprise. Over the course of early and medieval Chinese history, the character wen 文came to stand for the dynastic enterprise defined as a civilization of culture, scholarship and literature. The arc and substance of a literary tradition are not merely, or even mostly, penned by authors, but are no less equally inscribed (...)

Near field techniques, such as surface enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS), rely on the ability of plasmonic nanoparticles to induce localized electromagnetic field enhancements in close proximity to the metallic surface. For this reason, plasmonic nanostructures are a fundamental component of this spectroscopic technique. The possibility of achieving SERS signal enhancements high enough to enable sensitive identification of analytes down to the single molecule level is strictly related to the presence (...)

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 (...)

I have developed multiple studies with datasets that include "location (geospatial) data," such as data related to cancer, asthma, and health screening. These can provide unique insights into the epidemiology of these diseases or into prevention strategies when analyzed in conjunction with our rich datasets. The project is suitable for students who have already successfully completed a course on GIS techniques. Both my colleague Dr. Rosenblum and I have joint appointments in both Rutgers New (...)
