A Quantitative Analysis of Promontory Cave 1: An Archaeological Study on Population Size, Occupation Span, Artifact Use-life, and AccumulationDownload
Promontory Cave 1 on Great Salt Lake, Utah exhibits an incredible level of preservation rarely seen at archaeological sites. The high proportion of perishable materials provides a unique opportunity to study cultural remains that are usually lost to taphonomic processes. Extensive radiocarbon...
Characterization of magnetic nanoparticles as contrast agents and their application for quantitative magnetic susceptibility monitoring of the waterflooding of heavy oil in real timeDownload
Waterflooding is one enhanced oil recovery process used in heavy oil reservoirs such as at Cold Lake in North-Eastern Alberta. However, little has been published in terms of imaging heavy oil waterfloods, mainly due to the similar densities of water and heavy oil, which makes it difficult to...
SSHRC IDG awarded 2018. This study aims to answer the question: ‘How has the illicit introduction of opioid fentanyl and its ‘analogues’ such as carfentanyl, altered life in Alberta’s prisons? In Canada's opioid crisis, prisons end up housing a disproportionate number of the marginalized and...

Tumor angiogenesis is the cancer-induced chaotic proliferation of blood vessel structure penetrating into surrounding cancerous tissue. Effective micro-vasculature imaging method is urgently desired for both fundamental biological and clinical studies. However, this is a challenging task, as...
Recipient response behaviour during Japanese storytelling: a combined quantitative/multimodal approachDownload
This study explores the role of speaker and listener gaze in the production of recipient responses, often called backchannels or, in Japanese, aizuchi. Using elicited narrative audio/video data, speaker gaze and recipient response behaviours were first analyzed quantitatively. The results showed...
