Winter Progress

By • Jan 15th, 2019 • Category: Honors Thesis, Research

The past few weeks have been a busy one for my thesis! I am coming to the end of working on my chapter on the role of hands in “Janet’s Repentance.” This has been incredibly fun to write since this text is so rich in haptic imagery. I have traced the abusive hand of Robert…

Honors Blog Post 8: Modeling and Meetings

By • Dec 31st, 2018 • Category: Honors Thesis, Research

Over the past month I drafted a grant proposal to the Charles center to investigate an accompanying question to my study: what are the effects of temperature on mud snail mating?

Month Six: Connecting the Dots

By • Dec 31st, 2018 • Category: Honors Thesis, Research

Throughout December my thesis has begun to come together. My thesis will most likely be broken up into three distinct sections. First, in order to understand the reasons behind the way Italians treat asylum seekers, we must know the context into which migrants arrive. Italy has a very complex relationship with migration, turning from a…

December Update: Reflection on Thesis Writing Progress and Plans for Break

By • Dec 22nd, 2018 • Category: Honors Thesis, Research

Since August, I have completed nearly twenty pages of my thesis. Earlier in the semester, I focused primarily on creating a skeletal outline of how I wanted my thesis to look. As I was still trying to figure out how many chapters I want to have in my thesis, this stage of the writing progress…

Semester Success!

By • Dec 7th, 2018 • Category: Honors Thesis, Research

After these past few months, I have 20+ pages of my thesis completed! Plenty of work lies ahead for next semester, but I’ll be able to get a head start over winter break. My Alchemist section felt relatively (and oddly?) pain-free. I knew that section would serve as a building block for the rest of my thesis;…

A Rush of Participants at the Semester’s End

By • Dec 5th, 2018 • Category: Honors Thesis, Research

In this last week of classes, my calendar is adorned with different colors. Each one signifies a specific subject that needs attention—work, classes, fundraisers, etc. Sprinkled throughout is a theme of turquoise, a color that reminds me that the Healthy Beginnings Project will be seeing many family participants in the days ahead! Our flyer distribution in […]

November Update

By • Dec 4th, 2018 • Category: Honors Thesis, Research

Wow, what a crazy month! Up until Thanksgiving break, I was nonstop working on running more photochem experiments. As per usual, that meant timepoints and late nights in lab for me. Luckily, the experiments turned out well, so I get to hold off on more photochem for a while. Instead, I’m turning my attention back…
