Post #3 Art Therapy

By • Aug 17th, 2019 • Category: Honors Thesis, Research

Hello everyone! During my last week of research, I looked through the data/surveys I got from actual students taking an art therapy class at William and Mary. As I mentioned in my first post, these students took a survey before and after their class. The survey asks them to assess their stress, happiness, and energy […]

Post #3: Low Vaccination Rates in the United States and the Outbreaks they Cause

By • Aug 17th, 2019 • Category: Honors Thesis, Research

I have finally finished my draft of my paper for this project and I hope to have it completely done tomorrow. I decided that the best way to convey my findings from this project would be in a paper. I divided my paper into three main sections: an introduction/brief history of measles and the MMR […]

Summary

In summary, after my time working in the lab, I definitely feel a lot more integrated and that I obtained a lot of skills I did not have previously. I definitely gained a new found confidence being thrown into the LIWC project and having to figure it out all on my own, and it was […]

Research Wrapup

By • Aug 17th, 2019 • Category: Honors Thesis, Research

Overall, my research project was a project that I found very engaging and rewarding. To have started with absolutely nothing, and to have by the end coded a functioning Antennal Lobe is an immensely rewarding achievement.   Looking back, there are many aspects of the research that were rather challenging. For instance, writing the actual […]

Week 7: Sensory Integration

By • Aug 17th, 2019 • Category: Honors Thesis, Research

Last week we finished up the coding of mechanosensory stimulation. This week, we are finally able to observe the effects of  combining odor stimulation with mechanosensory stimulation.   In order to do this, we had both an odor pulse and a mechanosensory input occur at the 1 second mark of the simulation. Both of these […]

Conclusion !!!

By • Aug 16th, 2019 • Category: Honors Thesis, Research

I have learned a lot about bluebirds, research, and myself this summer! This project was my first experience ever with research, and I learned a lot of valuable lessons. A lot of the time, things don’t go as planned, and I learned a lot of problem solving skills as well as how to adjust my […]

Finally looking at my data :)

By • Aug 16th, 2019 • Category: Honors Thesis, Research

Heather and I started looking at my data, and I am very excited to see what my results like. There are definitely some surprises, it seems like a lot of our amplitudes at various frequencies are extremely similar. I definitely still have a lot of work to do with it, but this is a (very) […]

New Sites!

By • Aug 16th, 2019 • Category: Honors Thesis, Research

This is a brief update but an exciting one. We collected some data from 2 new locations! As you may remember, my sample size was a small issue after we had to cut some of the boxes when we could not finish our sampling during my seven weeks. Although we only got 2 boxes, they […]

FIREX Collaboration

By • Aug 16th, 2019 • Category: Honors Thesis, Research

Part of working in a lab this summer involved collaborating with other students and researchers on their projects. There were a lot of opportunities for everyone to pitch in and help on research that wasn’t our primary focus. Some field in science and chemistry can be really competitive, but the nice thing about atmospheric chemistry…

Post #2: Temporal Variation of Ticks

By • Aug 16th, 2019 • Category: Honors Thesis, Research

Hello everyone! I apologize for my long hiatus—I’ve been manipulating my data and compiling it into lots and lots of graphs. I’m glad I’m finally getting the opportunity to show some of them to you! I realize that what I talk about in this post wasn’t something that I clearly said that I wanted to […]
