|Use of Crumb Rubber in Asphalt Conrete||
Use of recycled materials including ground tire rubber (GTR) in asphalt is not new. Improved testing techniques are needed to determine optimum levels of GTR in asphalt and how GTR affects mix performance when placed in a pavement structure.

|Using toad diets to understand arthropod declines||
Toads (Bufonidae) are voracious and almost indiscriminate consumers of insects and other arthropods. Recent high-profile studies have revealed extraordinary and alarming declines in the diversity and total biomass of arthropods. Can we detect signatures of these declines in the guts of toads by studying changes in prey items through time? There is an urgent need to understand how widespread these declines are and if multiple trophic levels are affected. We are using historic data collected...

|Virtual Reality for Smart Health||
This research project is aimed at developing VR/AR models to implement digital twin for the electromechanical function of cardiac myocytes. In the digital world, there will be ions (ca2+, Na+, K+ ...), membranes, ion flows, ionic gates, cell contractions, and action potentials etc. We will use occulus, and/or HTC VIVE VR systems to implement the models of a cardiac cell.
Complex Systems Monitoring, Modeling and Control Lab: Our lab focuses on data-driven modeling and analysis of...

|Witherspoon, Context and Development Lab||
Research interests in the Context and Development Lab involve understanding how context shapes adolescents’ development and how race, ethnicity, and other cultural attributes interact with contextual characteristics to influence adolescent outcomes. Past projects in the lab (FAN-C: Families, Adolescents, and Neighborhoods in Context;PLACES/LUGARES) have explored the roles of different contexts such as residential neighborhoods, activities spaces, schools, and families on African American and...
