Members of the “Reflectance Lab” have diverse research interests including studies exploring pupilometry as a measure of cognitive load, auditory information processing, the effects of high noise levels on hearing as well as acoustic reflex measures using wideband power reflectance and transmittance. This longitudinal, continuous collection of high spatiotemporal resolution data enables the capture of deep phenotypes that can elucidate the mechanics and dynamics of plant development and physiology in relation to environmental conditions. However, lack of understanding of the biophysical processes and genetic architecture of traits controlling whole-plant water movement (termed hydraulics) and their relationships and potential trade-offs to yield and quality limits development of more water efficient varieties that have the potential to reach market. Below is a description of our labs, personnel, and some current or previous research activities. Read more about Welcome to Bioscience Research Laboratories; Return to the top of this page. DS|OH Lab does this by providing scholars and community members with hands-on training in critical media skills as well as in a diverse set of research methods to include participatory and feminist action research methods and those community-based methods that emerge through decolonizing methodologies. 1040 E. 4th St., Suite 1015 Tucson, AZ 85721-0073 My research interest lies in how plants sense and respond to their environment. Through harnessing UAS imagery with quantitative genetics, we are working towards elucidating the genetic mechanisms that give rise to phenotypic plasticity. This wonderful USDA facility introduced me to the world of agricultural research, and I continued to work for the USDA for over 26 years. We are interested in recovery of function, and treatment approaches involving speech-language therapy in combination with noninvasive brain stimulation techniques, such as transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), and transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS). After receiving my doctorate from Texas A&M University, I came to the University of Arizona to be a postdoctoral researcher in Dr. Pauli’s laboratory. Many of the projects have been devoted to understanding the influence of development and aging on respiratory, laryngeal, and velopharyngeal function during speech production. The findings from of Wyoming), and biophysical modeling (Dr. Mackay; Univ. We can be reached Monday-Friday 9am-4pm Mountain Standard Time at 520-621-3565 or by email – please refer to the iSchool Directory. Beyond the goal of pursuing research that contributes to a better understanding of human auditory function, we also strive to increase interest in hearing and hearing science among undergraduate and graduate students. The Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence Lab applies state-of-the-art methods in computational intelligence to research problems that span disciplinary boundaries. heat, drought. The Digital Storytelling and Oral History (DS|OH) Lab communicates digital storytelling and oral history research to a broader public as engaged research and, importantly, as a vehicle for social justice. Irrigation for agriculture accounts for 70% of human freshwater use. I am an art and live music enthusiast, avid hiker, and animal lover. 520-621-3336. The organization's structure and values promote innovation through dynamic interdisciplinary collaborations. My past work mostly focused on the genetic variation in metabolic, antioxidant and stomatal responses to drought in rice and underlying connections with grain yield performance. Armed with test tubes, cancer cells, computers and tumor models, they search for the missing pieces of the cancer puzzle in their efforts to prevent and cure cancer. Until further notice, the University of Arizona, in accordance with the guidelines recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention encourages all employees to work remotely. Our faculty members work closely with undergraduate and graduate level students on a wide variety of research topics related to human communication and its disorders. While the primary focus of our research is on the basic-science aspects of auditory perception, we also work on applied issues related to hearing, including the application of statistical and psychophysical principles and methods to the diagnoses of hearing disorders, and the signal processing for amplification. Increases in plant productivity conferred by more effective use of water by plants is thereby needed. Our offices in the Kuiper, Sonett, and Drake Buildings are closed to the public, but you can reach the Lunar and Planetary Laboratory, Monday–Friday 8am-5pm, at 520-621-6963. As part of my work with LemnaTec, I was again sent back to MAC to manage the construction and support of the world’s largest field phenotyping gantry. Submission and proposal information and deadlines vary by program so it is highly recommended that interested individuals check the respective program websites on a frequent basis. My research often integrates these three components, and is extending findings from our lab into clinically-driven research. We use tools such as laryngeal high-speed video of vocal fold vibration, acoustic and aerodynamic studies, computational modeling, and listening studies in our work. phenotypes – with a special interest in traits that show temporal expression Phenotyping is one of the greatest limiting factors upon the rate of crop improvement. Others have been designed to elucidate the impact of linguistic and biomechanic variables on speech physiology, vocal characteristics of skilled performers, and mechanisms underlying interactions between ventilatory drives and speech production requirements. The School of Information research labs function as places for scholarly work, student interaction, and discovery. This is studied with respect to normal song development and on-going maintenance of learned vocalizations. I was born and raised in Montana where I earned my PhD in Plant Sciences from Montana State University in 2014. patterns. Arizona Research Laboratories (ARL) is a group of researchers and core services solving critical scientific problems and generating knowledge for the future. I am interested in physiological and biochemical mechanisms able to confer abiotic stress tolerance to crops and in the identification of their genetic control. At Dr. Pauli’s lab I will mainly explore plant genetic variation for stress-adaptive traits under abiotic stress conditions (drought, heat, high light) using high-throughput phenotyping and physiological/metabolic profiling. Box 210076, Harvill Building After leaving USDA in 2015, I took a job with LemnaTec Corporation as their North American Field Engineer. Computerized models are used in our laboratory to aid in understanding how the physical shapes and sizes of both the voice source components and the vocal tract contribute to the sound of the human voice. Some Facts. Key Personnel: Kindle Rising, MS, CCC-SLP, Chelsea Bayley, MS, CCC-SLP. Student Researchers: Julia Daines, Jessica Sickels, and Chelye Smith. We take an ecological and biopsychosocial approach to the study of communication. I describe and measure variation of phenotypes (e.g. The long-term goals of the Bilingual Phonology Lab are to (1) determine the trajectory of typical acquisition in bilingual children, taking into consideration how the two languages of bilingual children interact; (2) determine how disorder presents itself in a child that maintains two speech sound systems, and (3) develop evidence-based assessment and intervention tools to help bilingual children with phonological disorders become effective communicators in both of their languages.
