Mentor: Professor Abbas Yaseen, COE, Bioengineering
This project seeks to characterize brain metabolism and blood flow and the neuroprotector effects of physical exercise on Alzheimer’s Disease, as physical exercise has been shown to reduce many of the negative side effects of aging at the molecular level. As a continuation of an ongoing project, we will use molecular biology analysis such as Western Blot and Immunofluorescence alongside data acquired from advanced two-photon microscopy. We expect to find strong correlations between chronic forced physical exercise and preserved neuronal function, blood vessel density, reduced counts of damaged proteins, or oxygen extraction fraction, suggesting a conservation of key brain mechanisms.
Amanda Ferrante COE’26, “Elucidating the Effects of Cholesterol on the Function of Surfactant Protein C using Atomistic Molecular Dynamics”
Mentor: Professor Mona Minkara, COE, Bioengineering
This study investigates the role of Surfactant Protein C (SP-C) in the pulmonary surfactant (PS) system – a complex lipid-protein system in lung alveoli essential for breathing. SP-C plays a crucial role in maintaining surface pressure and structure in the lungs, and recent findings suggest that SP-C may interact with cholesterol, altering membrane structure. Given the health significance of elevated cholesterol, using atomistic molecular dynamics to simulate systems of five different cholesterol concentrations to understand its impact on SP-C gives insight into how this mechanism functions with clinical applications in synthetic surfactant treatments. Findings will be shared at internal conferences.

Mentor: Professor Thomas Consi, COE, Electrical and Comp Engineering
The allure of generative design is more apparent than ever with the introduction of ChatGPT-3 and there has been considerable speculation about its applications in engineering. Autodesk has been pursuing this with features in Fusion360 that have been released over the course of the last couple of years though there is little industry adoption due to the difficulty in collecting reliable data to input into the algorithms. This project seeks to create a generalized data collection pipeline for use in generatively designed geometry with a keystone application in custom midsole designs that address orthopedic needs on an individual basis.
Lily Miles COE’26, “Underwater Li-Fi Communication”
Mentor: Professor Thomas Consi, COE, Electrical and Comp Engineering
Standard wireless communication methods like Bluetooth and Wi-Fi are unsuitable for underwater applications due to the water signal attenuation of radio waves. Consequently, underwater robotics relies on tethers for data transmission. Acoustic communication, while an option, is slow and energy-intensive. Light fidelity (Li-Fi) technology stands out: it transmits well underwater, with high data rates and low energy demands. This project introduces independent waterproof modules—a transmitter and a receiver—for pulse width modulation (PWM) and data communication. These modules Bridge surface control centers and remotely operated vehicles (ROVs), potentially replacing tethers and granting ROVs newfound mobility and versatility.
Emma Nace COS’26, “The Influence of GCY on Neuronal Regeneration in C. elegans”
Mentor: Professor Samuel Chung, COE, Bioengineering
By studying lesion conditioning, which activates regenerative capacity, I aim to uncover how signals like cGMP influence gene expression to promote regeneration. Focusing on daf-11, a gene involved in cGMP production, I will create mutant worms and conduct laser surgeries on their neurons in order to understand how crh-1, which drives conditioning, and downstream signaling is affected by a daf-11 knockout. This 10-week project involves genetic analysis, laser surgery, and imaging. Successful outcomes may unveil novel insights into nerve regeneration in a mammalian model. I plan to share my results at future research conferences, including RISE in the Spring.

Mentor: Professor Aron Stubbins, COS, Marine & Environment Sciences
The objective of this research is to evaluate how sunlight affects the breakdown of DOC (dissolved organic carbon) released by two important species of macroalgae: Sugar Kelp and Rockweed. I will meet this goal by: 1) assessing DOC production from algae; 2) assessing the proportion of DOC that resists breakdown from sunlight. The results will quantify the proportion of carbon that remains not broken down and sequestered in deep waters. This information is important to understanding of the full capacity of macroalgae to remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. I will present my findings at the Spring 2024 RISE conference.

Mentor: Professor Joshua Gallaway, COE, Chemical Engineering
Alkaline zinc-manganese dioxide is a safe, low-cost option for grid-scale energy storage, but its bismuth-aided rechargeability mechanism needs to be understood in order to take full advantage of this technology. This project will use Raman spectroscopy to characterize the surface of alkaline manganese dioxide cathodes with and without a bismuth additive under various alkaline electrolytes. This will help determine if bismuth affects the rechargeability through the interlayer environment of layered manganese dioxide. The results of this project will be shared at RISE with the possibility of being included in a peer-reviewed publication.

Mentor: Professor Mark Sivak, CAMD, Art and Design
This study aims to analyze how a university-level mechanical engineering project can produce a professional user experience, and thereby compete with industry-level products. The specific impact of material choice, manufacturing processes, and surface finishes on the final UX is discussed. The purpose of this study is to elevate a prototype to a level in which the aesthetic finish enhances the fundamental functionality. The outcomes of this study include a database of materials and manufacturing processes along with the emotional reactions they generate. In addition, the paper gives recommendations to support and develop a project by leveraging these components.
Henry Silverstein COE’25, “Internally Flanged Mechanical Rocket Separation System”
Mentor: Professor Andrew Gouldstone, COE, Mech & Industrial Engineering
This project intends to do a more thorough analysis, both with simulation and mechanical testing, of a mechanical separation device designed in AeroNU. The clamp derives many design features from a Marman clamp, a commonly used system for mechanical separation. However, these features are placed on the inside of the tubes being coupled (the airframe of the rocket), enabling its use on smaller-diameter rockets. Using finite element analysis to evaluate stress and maximum load and mechanical testing to confirm this analysis, the effectiveness of the design will be determined relative to comparable mechanisms.
Zachary Stolberg COS’24, “Elucidating the Role of GABA in the ENS”
Mentor: Professor Abigail Koppes, COE, Chemical Engineering
GABA and its receptors have been implicated in multiple inflammatory gastrointestinal diseases such as Irritable Bowel Disease and Ulcerative Colitis, making it and its receptors common targets for therapeutics. By inducing an artificial inflammatory environment with lipopolysaccharides (LPS) in an enteric neuron culture, we hope to see a difference in expression between excitatory GABA-A receptor expression and inhibitory GABA-B receptor expression between control and experimental groups. The expression will be evaluated with immunocytochemistry and qPCR, allowing for the visualization and quantification of both receptors. We predict that GABA-A will dominate since inflammatory states are typically associated with greater excitation.

This project aims to fulfill the needs assessed in their partner hospitals, to inform sustainable development of medical technology, and to promote an understanding of the need for this type of development. Results from this project will be shared at RISE and in Ghana.
Cassandra Vongrej COS’25, “The Importance of Macroalgal Dissolved Organic Carbon Release as a Carbon Dioxide Reducing Technology (Continued)”
Mentor: Professor Aron Stubbins, COS, Marine & Environment Sciences
Carbon dioxide is a main contributor to global warming due to increasing atmospheric concentrations. To mitigate the impacts of climate change, natural and engineered carbon dioxide reduction (CDR) is required. The growth of macroalgae is one CDR pathway, as macroalgae sequester large amounts of carbon in the form of dissolved organic carbon (DOC), which can be further characterized. Here, wild sugar kelp ( Laminaria saccharina ) and rockweed ( Fucus distichus and Ascophyllum nodosum) will be grown to analyze DOC release and its resistance to biodegradation. These results will be shared to provide knowledge on algal carbon cycling and potential climate change mitigation.
