Humans have altered more than half of Earth’s habitable land to meet the needs of our burgeoning population1. The transformation of forests, grasslands and deserts into cities, suburbs and agricultural land has caused many species to decline or disappear, whereas others have thrived2. The losers tend to be ecological specialists, such as rhinoceros or ostriches,

Air pollution contributes to as many as 9 million premature deaths worldwide each year – twice as many as war, other violence, HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria combined. Fine particulate matter air pollution is especially dangerous: Microscopic particles readily enter the lungs, bloodstream and brain, with health effects that include infant death, reduced life expectancy for adults,

Deep-sea angler fish have a bizarre reproductive strategy, compared to other animals. This reproductive strategy costs them their acquired immune functions, yet they are thriving, giving new hope to human patients who have inborn or acquired immune disorders.  The males, guided by pheromone and lights from the female’s bioluminescent lure, find their mates. Once they have

As an experimental physicist, I like doing things at tabletop scale that contribute to bigger goals. One such goal is measuring gravitational waves — little ripples in the curvature of space-time. These ripples result from astrophysical events such as star collisions, which cause tiny changes in the direction of the force of gravity and stretch
