The 35th Annual Alexander Graham Christie Lecture @ 210 Hodson Hall

Heidi Nepf, the Donald and Martha Harleman Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, will deliver the 35th Annual Alexander Graham Christie Lecture.

The lecture will be held at 3 p.m. on Thursday, May 3, in 210 Hodson Hall.

 

How vegetation alters waves and current, and the feedbacks to environmental system function

Vegetation provides a wide range of ecosystem services valued at over 4 trillion dollars per year. Seagrasses, salt marshes, and mangroves, damp storm surge and waves, mitigate anthropogenic nutrient loads, and provide important habitat and blue carbon reservoirs. The conservation and restoration of these landscapes has become the center-point of nature-based solutions for coastal protection and carbon mitigation. This seminar will summarize basic concepts in vegetation hydrodynamics, focusing on flexible meadows of seagrass, for which the bending of plants in response to fluid motion (called reconfiguration) plays an important role in setting the drag. Scaling laws are developed to describe the damping of currents, turbulence and waves as a function of plant morphology, flexibility, and shoot density. The feedbacks from plant-flow interaction to sediment transport and carbon sequestration are also discussed.


Sponsored by the Department of Mechanical Engineering and the JHU Student Section and the Baltimore Section of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers.

12th Annual Nano-Bio Symposium
May 4 all-day

The annual Nano-Bio Symposium is INBT’s signature event to showcase our multidisciplinary programs and researchers from across the entire University. The event provides an opportunity to hear presentations by leading scholars in the field, both from Hopkins and other institutions. It also offers a unique opportunity to meet and network with faculty and experts to establish new collaborations.

The annual symposium is hosted by INBT and the Physical Science-Oncology Center. This years theme will be Advanced Biomanufacuring and take place at the Homewood campus in the Glass Pavilion.

RISE@APL Poster and Information Session 2018
Oct 10 @ 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm
RISE@APL Poster and Information Session 2018 @ Glass Pavilion

The Research Internships in Science and Engineering (RISE@APL) program allows highly qualified undergraduate and graduate students from the Whiting School of Engineering and the Krieger School of Arts and Sciences the opportunity to conduct research at the Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory.

At this poster and information session, RISE@APL Scholars will present their research findings, while representatives from APL and Johns Hopkins Engineering will be available to answer students’ questions about the application and selection process.

13th Annual Nano-Bio Symposium
May 3 all-day

The Annual Nano-Bio Symposium is a showcase and celebration of the latest discoveries in nanoscience from our multidisciplinary research teams at the Institute for NanoBioTechnology. It brings students and top scholars from Hopkins, other institutions, and industry together to network, share knowledge and ideas, and foster new collaborations.

The theme for the 2019 Nano-Bio Symposium is Translation of Nano & Bio Research.
