Brita Horlings - Snow, Ice and Climate Change
Tiny needles smaller than the thickness of a penny, called microneedles, have shown a lot of potential for pain-free and user-friendly delivery of drugs and vaccines. As microneedles are applied to more complex medical challenges in the future, additional strategies for incorporating the drug or vaccine will be needed to enable further optimization and innovation. This need inspired the design of a new type of microneedle: an integrated fiber microneedle. The design process has been rocky at times, but we are excited about all the potential applications of this new microneedle system.
What is a defect in a crystal? How can we turn these “problems” into advantages? By understanding defects better, we can use them to do things like making a Quantum Computer!
Understanding changes of the snow and ice on Antarctica and Greenland are critical for understanding future sea-level rise. Snowflakes fall, get buried, and eventually turn into ice. This transition can take centuries, and depends mainly on the temperature and how much snow falls each year. How will climate change alter the speed of this transition? Brita will explore our current understanding and research, and how they can be used to better estimate sea-level rise.
