Recent Innovations From the Boise State Electronics and Natural Sciences Research Lab

November 17 @ 10:30 am - 11:30 am

Join us for seminar on Wednesday, November 17! Dr. Kris Campbell is scheduled to present valuable information about recent innovations from the Boise State Natural Science and Engineering Research Laboratory. Participate in person at the Micron Engineering Center, room 114 or join us on Zoom.

Abstract

The Electronics and Natural Sciences Research Lab within COEN uses novel electronic devices to explore and interact with the natural environment. In this talk, I will provide an update on our recent research efforts, including some of the novel ways we can use electronic devices to detect environmental pollutants. We’ll also discuss ways that we can help plants survive and thrive by measuring their electrical responses in various environmental situations, and essentially ‘receiving’ plant electrical communication signals with our electronic device sensors.

Speaker Bio

Dr. Campbell has had an interest in plants, especially in photosynthesis (photosystem II), since she was a graduate student at the University of California, Davis. She is now happily merging the fields of the natural sciences and electrical engineering in the hopes of improving crop yields, reducing waste in the form of over use of pesticides, fertilizers, and water, as well as detecting environmental pollutants.
