Investigating the effectiveness of composite materials in combat situations is the focus of newly funded research by Kedar Kirane. His proposal to quantify how much energy composites can safely absorb has won a $359,000 grant through the Young Investigator program of the Army Research Office.
Solar energy could be made more efficient in the future, thanks to new findings published by scientists from Stony Brook and the Department of Energy’s Brookhaven National Laboratory.
Christopher Gobler conducts research on plankton ecology, with a broad focus on the factors that promote phytoplankton growth (organic and inorganic nutrients), as well as factors that are responsible for algal mortality (zooplankton, viruses, filter-feeding bivalves) in diverse aquatic ecosystems. A primary focus of the lab within the field of plankton ecology has been the study of harmful algal blooms (HABs), having investigated blooms of brown tide both locally and around the U.S.
