Episode 59: Invasive Plant Toolkit

When Michele Clark began looking into doctoral programs, she found a National Science Foundation grant that focused not only on the ecology of an area, but the human dimension, as well. She found at ASU an interdisciplinary team of demographers, soil ecologists, and governance, focused on invasive species research in Nepal, which inspired her to pursue a PhD in Environmental Life Sciences. Developing nations have fewer resources to counteract invasive species, but for whom the invasion can have devastating impacts on their quality of life. Invasive plants are non-native species that are either intentionally or unintentionally introduced to an ecology, and can cause detrimental impacts to the health of people living in the area, the economy, and the surrounding environment. Invasive species are like a plant-based horror movie: nearly indestructible aliens marching across the land, causing irreparable harm. Named by the Nepali people “tree killer”, the invasive vine, mikania micrant...

Episode 58: Acoustic Ecology Lab

For students Anne-Marie Shaver (PhD in Musicology) and Hunter Langenhorst (undergraduate student in Music and Culture, and Spanish literature), music has long been an important part of life. The Acoustic Ecology Lab offers unique ways to embrace that passion. “Every single sound we hear has its sonic niche. Whether it’s the birds chirping, or the wind, or gravel creaking as people walk…every single sound has a frequency,” Hunter explains. “Losing that special frequency can give us hints about what is happening in the environment, and the ecology, in that place. Studying those sounds, or lack of sounds, is what the lab does.” Simply put, the Acoustic Ecology Lab is using sound to understand what is happening in our environments. Stemming from the pioneering work of Dr. Garth Paine in Acoustic Ecology, and with the help and vision of co-director Professor Sabine Feisst, the lab features an interdisciplinary team of computer scientists, engineers, music enthusiasts, and environme...

Episode 56: ICE In Indonesia

Native Phoenician James Cook, a mechanical engineering systems student, shares his experiences in a multi-year use-inspired research project. Through the GlobalResolve service abroad program at Barrett, the Honors College, students are able to engage in interdisciplinary projects focused on “bridging the global divide with sustainable and collaborative solutions”. For James, what started as simply meeting a mandatory course requirement turned into a 3-semester long passion project focused on finding sustainable, innovative ways to preserve fish for local fishermen in Indonesia. The research team created a solar-thermal, ammonia-based ice generator using cheap materials, allowing for fisherman to quickly freeze their fish to maintain freshness. Along the way, they partnered with an Indonesian university and made lifelong friends. Listen in as James shares stories of traveling the world, using humanitarian engineering to make a meaningful difference, and what living the innovation m...

Episode 55: Droplet

Droplet is a research and design company focused on creating a platform that builds biodegradable microspheres for targeted drug delivery into a patient’s body. ASU biomedical engineering students Sheldon Cummings, Rex Moore, Byron Alarcon, and Levi Riley are working on the process for making these microspheres. The microspheres are one piece of the larger puzzle of targeted drug delivery, which has been baffling the medical field for years. Droplet was formed from the desire to engage in use-inspired research, which means research that has direct impact on people in the “real world”. Join us this week as we get a glimpse inside the world of sci-fi-level innovation, and how this group of students succeeded in building a research and development company by very strategically focusing on building solutions for one part of a much larger challenge.

Episode 54: AmSO BodyFIT Yoga Mat

The AmSO BodyFIT yoga mat was created as part passion project, part design challenge, and part desire to help others.

Combining her passion for physical health with her eye for design, she didn’t set out to be “innovative” – instead, she wanted to make yoga and physical fitness more accessible to people who may otherwise be intimidated. Join us as we follow Alicia on her path in taking an idea from concept to selling a product on Amazon. Have you downloaded the Sun Devil Rewards app?
