Current carries news of aquatic collaboration

A collaborative research project at the University of Windsor is starting to make waves.

The Council of the Great Lakes Region featured the Real-time Aquatic Ecosystem Observation Network (RAEON) in its semi-annual magazine The Current.

RAEON is led by University of Windsor professor and Tier 1 Canada Research Chair in Changing Great Lakes Ecosystems Aaron Fisk.

Work against sexual violence earns Canada Research Chair for UWindsor professor

Charlene Senn’s goal is to empower women.

The University of Windsor professor has devoted her professional life to arming women with the knowledge and tools they need to better protect themselves against sexual violence without limiting their freedom.

And it’s that work that has led to her appointment as the Canada Research Chair in this field of study.

“During my undergraduate degree I really didn’t know what I was going to do and had always thought about careers like medicine or dentistry,” Dr. Senn said.

Researchers use 3D printed toads in the wild

When the rains eventually blanket northwest Costa Rica, ushering in the country’s wet season, a booming chorus of yellow toads will fill the tropical forest.

And the moment that rain starts to fall, UWindsor’s Katrina Switzer will race to a pond in Santa Rosa National Park where she’ll match 3D printed “Robotoads” with unsuspecting mates.

“The Neotropical Yellow Toads have a large breeding event that really only happens once a year during the first massive rainfall,” Switzer explained, adding the rain usually starts falling in the middle of the night.

UWindsor prof to be featured on Japanese science show

Colin Novak is big in Japan.

And if the associate professor of mechanical, materials and automotive engineering isn’t yet, he will be soon.

A camera crew from Japan’s national public broadcaster NHK will be at the University of Windsor on April 16 to report on Dr. Novak’s investigation into the source of the infamous Windsor Hum.

Novak’s Noise Vibration and Harshness-Sound Quality Group set up low-frequency noise monitoring stations across the city’s west end to record noise within the hum’s frequency range.
