Getting my feet wet (and muddy)

By • Jun 30th, 2018 • Category: Honors Thesis, Research

The past few weeks since I arrived in Maine have been a blur of lab work and field work with only one constant: mud. Professor Allen wasn’t kidding when he said – plan on being in the field every day! We’ve been lucky enough to explore the intertidal habitats of Maine 15 out of the…

Writing Ethnographic Wrongs

By • Jun 30th, 2018 • Category: Honors Thesis, Research

My month of June could easily be summarized as four weeks filled with vexation, to say the least. As I’ve continued to explore the issue of bundanga in works concerning Santería, I have become much more intimate with the language used to express it. Admittedly, the writing of these pieces has become somewhat of a fixation for me as,…

The Significance of Place in Time

By • Jun 30th, 2018 • Category: Honors Thesis, Research

My investigations have been pointing me increasingly toward what England was like under the Roman Empire, in the first several centuries AD. “Cymbeline,” the core of my inspiration, is set in the first century AD, and I was conflicted as to whether I wanted to honor this timeline. My interest in the treatment of madness…

Monthly Update: June

By • Jun 30th, 2018 • Category: Honors Thesis, Research

As the month progressed, I had the time and space to dig deeper into the dataset I have in hand. Since it has been a while since I last updated, you might not recall that this project aims at detecting various pathologies among premature neonates with data collected from NICU at several collaborating universities/hospital. The particular…

June update: clones are made

By • Jun 30th, 2018 • Category: Honors Thesis, Research

During the month of June, I have made some good progress on my research. I have managed to create two versions of ulp1 (the protein I am focusing on) that have different amino acid changes made to their catalytic domains. In the amino acid sequence of the catalytic domain, there are four cysteines.  There are…

Henry Fielding’s Politics: An Enigma

By • Jun 30th, 2018 • Category: Honors Thesis, Research

Since I arrived in Williamsburg on June 12th, I spend most of my days the same way. I find a bench around campus and start sifting through the immense body of work concerning the development of the novel in the English language. While these studies are indeed very helpful for broadening my background knowledge, they lack…

Initial research objective In order to enhance security of GPU, I first had to examine various types of attack made on GPU.

For example, side channel attack utilized meta data of the system such as time took […]

Month Two: Primary Factors

By • Jun 30th, 2018 • Category: Honors Thesis, Research

  As the months go on, and I get further and further into my pile of research, I have become aware of the wonder and danger that is the bibliography. When I am the one writing one, I hate it. A period here, but a comma there – along with the bone-deep fear, however well-founded, of somehow…
