Low Viscosity 3D Bioprinter Abstract

By • May 21st, 2019 • Category: Honors Thesis, Research

Medicine and technology have never been so closely entwined as they are today. Among the tools of biomedical engineering, one piece of novel technology stands out as an instrument to pioneer the future of design: The Bioprinter. A bioprinter is a machine set up similar to a 3D-printer, which moves about a gantry, or skeleton […]

Low-Viscosity Liquid Dispensation Thermally Resistant Bioprinter

By • May 21st, 2019 • Category: Honors Thesis, Research

As the field of biomedical engineering has grown, efforts to combined intuitive design and practical medicine have become intertwined. This can best be seen by the development of the bioprinter, a machine that prints cartilage-like bio-ink into the molds of ears, noses, and other body parts, which has continued to fascinate those in the medical […]

Summer Research Week 1

By • May 21st, 2019 • Category: Honors Thesis, Research

Hi everyone! I am beginning my summer research by reading background information on Charlotte Bronte’s life, and I have just finished my first biography by Elizabeth Gaskell. So far, I have found the biographical information to be especially relevant to my thesis topic, specifically the stories from her childhood and her experiences as a school…

Chevalier D’Eon – Update 1

By • May 20th, 2019 • Category: Honors Thesis, Research

Abstract This week, I have focused on the first part of my project – building a theoretical framework with which to analyze Kates’ work and the primary sources from the life of D’Eon. I started the week with three main goals: to read and take notes on three theoretical works I had already identified, to […]

Diving Into William and Mary’s Past: Research Update 1

By • May 20th, 2019 • Category: history, Honors Thesis, Research, William and Mary

Finding a Method  In this past week, I began searching through the Colonial Echo yearbooks for examples of racism, racial insensitivity, or offensive traditions. I am extremely grateful that members of the special collections team at Swem library put in countless hours of work scanning yearbooks to make them available in the digital archives. After […]

Blog Post#1: Understanding European Integration through Retrospective Analysis

By • May 20th, 2019 • Category: Honors Thesis, Research

Hello everyone! I hoped to publish this update last week, but my immune system had other plans. One case of the flu and several tissue boxes later, I am excited to publish my first blog post, in which I intend to outline my summer research plans and describe what I’ve been up to the past […]

Week One: Off to a Good Start

By • May 20th, 2019 • Category: Honors Thesis, Luke, Research

Going into this first week of research, I wasn’t entirely sure what to expect. Since my research is for a thesis in the philosophy department, I don’t need to travel or take interviews, much less test with chemicals or plants or something of that sort. My main goal this summer is to read a great…

And so it begins…with a lot of books!

By • May 18th, 2019 • Category: history, Honors Thesis, Research

As this post’s title might suggest, I’ve spent the past week and a half finding books, buying books, and reading books that provide background information to the primary sources I’ll read in the coming months, citations referencing even more primary sources, and generally illuminate the influence of women in 1790s America. As of today, I’ve…

NLP & Özil: Updates on case selection and research design

By • May 18th, 2019 • Category: Honors Thesis, Research

In the first step of my Monroe summer research, I discussed case selection and research design with a professor. I also started writing code and ran it on a small sample of articles. This pilot helped me figure out how to clean and process my data. It also helped me brush up on relevant data structures […]

Post #1: Definitions and Refocusing

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

As my project deals with a number of very similar political science concepts, I figured it would be best to begin a week ago with defining those terms which underlie the entire project. Given that I am focusing on revolutionary movements, the first idea that must be defined is political revolution; for that, I looked […]
