Images of Research Competition 2016
University of Alberta graduate students made 114 submissions to the Images of Research Competition 2016. The submissions highlighted that graduate student research at UAlberta takes place in studios and science labs, in the field and on the ice. From steel joints to self-determination; forest fire sensors to fossil record research; from drag kings to disease-resistant peas, UAlberta graduate student research is diverse and global. A multi-disciplinary 5 person adjudication committee reviewed all submissions and selected winners. The University of Alberta community voted for the People's Choice Award and the winning image garnered 122 votes out of 765 votes. The winning and semifinalist images are available in ERA (the University of Alberta’s digital repository) after the Images of Research exhibition.

The image provides a generalized idealization of narco-(bio)-literature and the focuses of my doctoral research. Narco-media is an important phenomenon that is part of a nation's national and international “identity”. This particular image explores the objectification of an exotic/plastic woman's...
My research in the Hughes lab focuses on investigating the role of Moesin during nervous system development. Moesin is involved in maintaining cell integrity by linking membrane-associated proteins to the underlying actin cytoskeleton. We use fruit flies to study Moesin function as only one...
The tipi reflected in the waters of Sahtu (Great Bear Lake) in Déline, NT, is positioned by the prophet house on the edge of the community. The site celebrates the four Dene prophets and Déline, NT's spiritual power and permanence – a strength contained not only by the community, but also by the...
Climate change is amplified in northern latitudes and has significant impacts on permafrost, glaciers, and vegetation dynamics. Rising air temperatures and more variable precipitation patterns will also have effects on the hydrological cycle. However, some of these effects are not well...
