Protein Immobilization Research Final Update

By • Aug 1st, 2018 • Category: Charles Center, Honors Thesis, Research

As the last week of research approaches, it is rewarding to look back and see all that I have learned. The last two weeks have been extremely productive: I’ve successfully cloned SSO into another plasmid and expressed both the wild type and a mutant version. Furthermore, I’ve been able to run reactions showing the sustained […]

Native American Healing Music Update: The Role of Women

By • Jul 13th, 2017 • Category: Charles Center, Honors Thesis, Research

My research has led me to explore the Library of Congress and the Smithsonian Center for Folklife and Cultural Heritage. I’ve listened to most of the available recorded music that they have from Folkway Festivals and ethnographer field work. While listening to this music and looking through field notes, I began to note a pattern […]

Summer Research Showcase

By • Sep 29th, 2015 • Category: Charles Center, Honors Thesis, Research

I have been spending the majority of September getting into the swing of things here at school. It is quite a shift from full time work on a project in the summer to marginal work when homework lets up during the school year. I have recently been making my poster for the Charles Center Summer…

Fourteenth Annual Honors Colloquium

By • Feb 25th, 2013 • Category: Charles Center, Honors Thesis, Research

My time slot in the Charles Center’s Fourteenth Annual Honors Colloquium was one of the first—1:30 on February 15—and I didn’t quite know what to expect. However, I think the opportunity afforded was a great one: not only has the colloquium allowed me to learn more about my thesis-writing friends’ research, it gave me a way…

“The Origin of Barbadian Ceramics”–an introduction

By • Apr 24th, 2012 • Category: archaeology, Charles Center, Honors Thesis, Research

As this is my first blog entry, I would like to both give a short blurb about myself, as well as briefly outline my research for this summer. I plan to use the subsequent blog entries during my research itself. Like many undergraduates conducting resea…



My Own Project: ER and preventable care admits

By • Aug 25th, 2011 • Category: Charles Center, Honors Thesis, Research

So I finally finished my own project. I used the same data I’ve been working with (quarterly inpatient data from Florida), but now only focusing on two types of patients: ER admits and patients with preventable conditions. Preventable conditions are …

And…End Scene!

By • Jun 22nd, 2009 • Category: anthropology, Charles Center, Honors Thesis, Research

So, here it is.  June.  Theses are submitted, defenses are over, grades are in.  Tom Brokaw sent us on our way with global metaphors and warning about the economy (all right, so maybe that wasn’t so great…).  Senior year is well over, and we’re all on to bigger things.  For me, that means grad school […]

I love this research baby but I can’t think straight anymore

By • May 3rd, 2009 • Category: Charles Center, Honors Thesis, Research

So I’ve been gone for a lot longer than I meant to.  I finished the thesis and defended it, I’ve taken my last class here, and now all that’s left is finals.  And graduation.  And finding a job.  And a new apartment.
As this blog is hosted by the Charles Center, I suppose I should give […]



Have vita, will travel

So I was in Tampa last week.  It was pretty crazy.  Continental sent me to Orlando instead of Tampa, I got a James Bond rental car, watched 40 grown women quack while doing the duck dance, and then Tampa got invaded by pirates with cannons.
I’m not making this up.
I presented my poster and got some […]
