A&S Research — Meet Our Stars
Ask the Experts about Coronavirus Vaccine, Herd Immunity, Work from Home—Ohio University faculty experts Dr. Jennifer Hines, Dr. Winfried Just, and Dr. Glenn Dutcher discuss the scientific research around the virus at OHIO, mathematical modeling of the virus spread, and the economic results of Covid-19.
- Read more about three Chemistry & Biochemistry research labs using the expertise of their faculty, student and staff research teams to investigate other possible ways to combat COVID-19.
- Read more about the effort to develop software that can create more accurate models of scientific phenomena — such as what happened in the microseconds after the Big Bang or how long a radioactive nucleus will live before it decays.
College of Arts & Sciences faculty and students ask a lot questions in their pursuit of new knowledge.
Ohio University is a research-intensive institution, and each year College of Arts & Sciences faculty and students produce dozens of books, hundreds of peer-reviewed articles, and hundreds of conference presentations.
- Read about our journeys, our questions--and why we explore yesterday, today and tomorrow.
- News about research and scholarly activities.
Dr. Winfried Just discusses the ways in which mathematical models can predict the spread of infectious diseases like coronavirus.
Dr. Jana Houser recently provided new observational evidence for one of the two main theories of tornado formation: tornadoes can develop from the bottom up. The traditional explanation is that tornadoes form from the clouds down.
"The No. 1 thing about doing research—it’s fun," says Dr. Sarah Wyatt. "We do this because we’re curious. We want to know how something works. It’s a lot of hard work. But you have to keep reminding yourself: This is the information we’re looking for. And when you find it, you’re the first person to ever have seen it. You’re the first person to know this. That’s the coolest part."
“I accept the honor tonight and we celebrate it together, for all of the women, all of the gay people, all of the LGBT people who have worked so hard to produce important research here at OHIO,” said Dr. Susan Burgess, the first woman in the College of Arts & Sciences to be named a distinguished professor. “And for everyone who has worked to make OHIO a more welcoming and inclusive place over the years.”
