Researchers have developed a model that will help people figure out how much product variability it can introduce before it becomes a losing proposition.
It would appear, at least for now, that the great white shark population in the northwest Pacific Ocean has remained fairly stable over the last 60 years. Heather Christiansen would like to keep it that way.
Keara Stanislawczyk will spend a good part of her summer bobbing around in Hamilton Harbour trying to find tiny microscopic water fleas.
Mention seals to most Canadians and chances are their minds will immediately jump to the variety of harp seals that are controversially hunted on the east coast.
But the lesser known ringed seals are just as important to Canada’s Arctic, and a PhD student in the Great Lakes Institute for Environmental Research is devoting his research to studying their behaviour and how it may be changing as a result of climate change in the north.
Coming to Windsor might have been the best move ever for a young Chinese engineering graduate student who’s trying to improve the performance of hybrid electric vehicles.
“It’s been really good for me,” said Xiaomin Lu, a PhD student who will soon return to Windsor after a productive six-week trip to India to conduct more research. “If I had stayed in China, I never would have had the opportunity to experience so much.”
Human kinetics has a brand new community-based PhD program and the first cohort of students say they’re thrilled.
A graduate student in kinesiology has discovered that playing Wii video games can improve the fine motor skills of people who are recovering from strokes.
Despite being aware of the long-term consequences of concussions, some football players are willing to continue participating because they’re able to rationalize putting their sport ahead of themselves.
Those were among the findings of a trio of first-year masters students in kinesiology who presented their work yesterday, the final day for their research methods course.
A doctoral student will present her research Wednesday at a workshop in South Africa.
