Fluid Dynamics Laboratory: The Fluid Dynamics Laboratory is devoted to the study of fluid dynamics and heat transfer control on the micro- and meso-scale. At these small sizes, unique physical phenomena can result in efficiency and manufacturing challenges unseen for traditional systems.
Geophysics Lab: The Geophysics lab at WSU Vancouver combines field measurements with theoretical models and computer simulations to shed light on natural water flows, mixing, and sediment transport.
Global Change and Watershed Biogeochemistry Lab - This group uses experimental, remote sensing, and spatially explicit modeling approaches to elucidate processes governing the mobilization, transport, transformation and ecosystem/biogeochemical impacts of bio-active elements (N, P, etc.).
Tahira Probst's research over the past 15 years has largely focused on issues related to employee health, well-being and safety. In particular, she is interested in the topics of economic stress and job insecurity, accident under-reporting and organizational safety climate, and safety leadership behaviors.
Conservation Biology: Cheryl Schultz's research focuses on understanding the relative contributions of individual, population and landscape-level processes to the population viability of endangered species as these processes interface with realistic conservation interventions.
Zebrafish Genetics Lab: We use zebrafish melanophores as a model to ask questions regarding the cell biology and genetics of pigment/skin cell development. How do melanophores maintain their characteristic shape that is essential for their function? What genes are important for production of mature, healthy melanophores?
