Brain Biomarkers that Predict Risk for Alzheimer's Disease

Brain data can be useful in predicting individuals that might be more susceptible to age-related diseases like Alzheimer's disease. Help will be needed in any of the following areas: 1) Conduct a literature review on brain differences in populations at risk for Alzheimer's disease, 2) Conduct cognitive testing on individuals that might get Alzheimer's disease, 3) Conduct MRI testing in Birmingham to measure brain variables in individuals who might get Alzheimer's disease, 4) Analyze data using brain and cognitive variables to test for group differences. There will be a steep learning curve and a strong internal-motivation of learning new material is required....

Slavery at The University of Alabama

I'm interested in working with students who are interested in studying the history of slavery at UA. Piecing together this story will involve reading archival records, and learning more about the early workings of the university. Another project I am interested in involve using the archives of an 1853 antebellum home in Demopolis, Alabama to piece together the forgotten story of the Lyon family and their lives and legacy. ...

Creativity, Complexity, and Stress

In recent years complexity science, and the study of complex systems has revolutionized a number of sciences contributing to how our understanding of how a mind emerges from the components of the brain, to how chemicals like water get unforeseen properties like "wetness." This project is composed of a set of experiments looking at crime of as the product of a complex system. We exam how diverse acturs use creativity to deal with stressors known to lead to crime, and how they adaptations change the social landscape. Students may have the opportunity to get involved with different elements of these experiments including developing and administering measurements, being trained on advanced statics, and developing and understanding of how comple...

Burning Processes in Supernova Explosions

Student will perform computational simulations of burning processes which release energy during a supernova explosion. Tasks include analysis and verification of simulation results, including study of dependence on adopted resolution, reaction pathways considered, and comparison to other methods. The simulations undertaken by the student will inform the performance of large-scale simulations of supernovae used to understand observed transients on the sky, supernova remnant structure, and the synthesis of elements in stellar explosions, as well as explore the necessary physics for understanding these explosions and the stars that lead to them....

Computational peptide chemistry

Advanced computational electronic structure methods will be used to calculate the geometries, vibrational frequencies, energetics, and excited state properties of important compounds of biological interest. Both correlated molecular orbital theory and density functional theory will be used. The focus of the work is on charging of peptides for explaining mass spectrometry results for both cationic and anionic peptides. The cationic work will focus on transition metal ion charging. Both types of studies are relevant to the study of the Human proteome....

A fear worse than public speaking? Commitment in romantic relationships.

People often quote the anecdote that the number one fear people have is of public speaking. I suspect, based on what I know and survey casually in my classes, that many people might be more afraid of commitment in romantic relationships than they are of public speaking (and maybe death). This research study will explore and measure the different fears people have - focusing specifically on three fears: death, public speaking, and commitment in romantic relationships. ...
