High-Flying Huskies Take to the Skies

Five Air Force ROTC cadets pose in front of the nose of a C-130 airplane.

While not all become pilots, most cadets in Michigan Tech’s Air Force ROTC program will spend time inside a C-130 Hercules aircraft at some point during their careers. A visiting aircrew that included Husky alumni flew in for a memorable Keweenaw mission to familiarize students — and dazzle them with the view from above.

“This was very exciting for all of us,” said Lt. Col. Ben Zuniga, commander of AFROTC Detachment 400 and a professor of aerospace studies. “The aircraft is from the 96th Airlift Squadron based at the Minneapolis-St. Paul Joint Air Reserve Station. As Michigan Tech is located so far from most Air Force units, including active duty, reserve and Air National Guard, this was a very rare opportunity for our cadets to gain this type of flying exposure.”

VPR Research Series: Publishing Pitfalls and How to Avoid Them

Save the Date: Join us virtually Feb. 29 from noon to 1 p.m. for the next session in the VPR Research Series: “Predatory Publishing Pitfalls, and How to Avoid Them” featuring Nora Allred, associate director for scholarly engagement at the Van Pelt and Opie Library.

Predatory or fraudulent publishers, whose sole objective is profit, lure potential authors with the promise of rapid peer-reviewed publication and low fees in their “impactful journals.” In reality, what they deliver is the opposite: unqualified or non-existent review, hidden fees, fake or misleading journal rankings, damage to researcher reputation and the possibility of misinformation entering the scholarly record. With an increasing number of predatory publishers being identified, researchers need to be aware of and prepared for this publishing pitfall.

Please join us to learn about predatory publishing: what it is, why it’s a problem and how to avoid it.

Join us via Zoom.

Any questions should be addressed to rd-l@mtu.edu.

CFRES Seminar with Cassandra Reed-VanDam

The College of Forest Resources and Environmental Science (CFRES) will host a seminar at 12:30 p.m. today (Feb. 15) in Noblet G002 with speaker Cassandra Reed-VanDam, M.S. student in applied ecology, CFRES (advised by Valoree Gagnon).

The title of Reed-VanDam's talk is: "Restoration is repairing relationships: An ethical research methodology for the socio-ecological restoration of wild rice (Zizania palustris) within KBIC homelands."

From the abstract:
Wild rice (Zizania palustris) is an ecologically and culturally significant species for the Keweenaw Bay Indian Community (KBIC), an Ojibwe Tribe located on the L’Anse Reservation as established by the Treaty of 1854. This annual aquatic grass is an important food source for many beings, including humans and waterfowl, and the roots hold sediment in place contributing to high water quality. Historically, wild rice was present across much of the northern Great Lakes area, however their lake presence has declined since the early 1900s due to a confluence of factors attributed to industrialization, forestry, and mining. This talk will focus on the research methods used to bridge Western and Indigenous sciences in order to determine the socio-ecological attributes of manoomin restoration efforts within KBIC homelands. Grounded in community relationships, this research presents a framework for assessing restoration efforts of wild rice while centering the values, priorities, and responsibilities of the KBIC.

MSE Seminar with Casey Sundberg

The Department of Materials Science and Engineering (MSE) is hosting a seminar presented by Ph.D. candidate Casey Sundberg today (Feb. 15) from 1-1:20 p.m. in M&M 610.

The seminar is titled "High Temperature Plastic Deformation Characteristics of Alkali Activated Cement."

From the abstract:
This seminar discusses the high-temperature plastic deformation characteristics of alkali activated cement (AAC). The AACs discussed in this seminar are inorganic sodium aluminosilicate polymers with an amorphous crosslinked network microstructure composed of silicon and aluminum connected by oxygen bridges and sodium ions charge-balancing aluminum atoms. AACs can be used in place of portland cement in concrete and have beneficial high-temperature properties. One benefit of AACs is that they are plastic at high temperatures. This research posits that the high-temperature load-bearing capacity in the plastic region increases with increasing silica content due to an increase in oxygen bridge crosslinking. To determine if this is true hot compression tests were carried out on samples with varying compositions, and their viscosities were measured. Changes in crosslinking with composition were measured using solid-state nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy. The changes in oxygen bridge crosslinking were then compared to changes in viscosity.

Speaker bio:
Sundberg is a Ph.D. candidate under the advisement of Lawrence Sutter and Paul Sanders. He is from Duluth, Minnesota, and received his B.S. in Mechanical Engineering in 2015 and his M.S. in Civil Engineering in 2018, both from the University of Minnesota Duluth (UMD). He is a member of various professional organizations, including the American Concrete Institute, where he has presented his previous research on AACs at four national conferences and is a member of several committees. He has also presented his previous work at a national conference of the American Nuclear Society, of which he is an Executive Committee member, along with an accompanying conference proceedings paper. He has also taught statics and mechanics of materials at UMD and has been a researcher performing research on other cement and concrete materials. He enjoys interdisciplinary collaboration, but his primary focus is on materials science and engineering.


MSE Seminar with Matt Sisson

The Department of Materials Science and Engineering (MSE) is hosting a seminar presented by Ph.D. candidate Matt Sisson today (Feb. 15) from 1:25-1:45 p.m. in M&M 610.

The seminar is titled "Micromagnetism of Self-Assembled FeSi2 Nanoisland Ensembles."

From the abstract:
Nanoscale materials exhibit novel properties due to broken symmetries that alter an atom’s local environment. This changes the atom’s electronic structure, potentially altering its spin moment and attendant measurable physical properties like magnetic hysteresis. Iron disilicide (FeSi2) is nonmagnetic in bulk, but density functional theory calculations predict magnetic properties at nanoscale, which has been experimentally verified. How morphology and interfacial orientation affects nanoisland magnetization and how their spatial arrangement affects magnetic coupling can be studied using atomistic spin dynamics and micromagnetic domain theory. A more thorough understanding of these phenomena could improve spin filters needed to spin-polarize electric current, enabling the next generation of spintronics. Spintronics devices like magnetoresistive RAM (MRAM) could dramatically increase the computational efficiency of complex simulations, potentially accelerating many fields of research.

Speaker bio:
Sisson earned his B.S. in Astronomy and Astrophysics from the University of Michigan in 2010. A computer hardware hobbyist, he enrolled at Michigan Tech in 2021 to pursue a Ph.D. in Materials Science and Engineering under advisor Yongmei Jin, believing his physics background lends itself to researching the unique physics of nanomaterials. His current research uses computational methods to study novel nanoscale magnetic properties with technological applications.

BioSci Seminar Series Speaker: Catherine Rono

Ph.D. candidate Catherine Rono (advised by Mark Tang), Department of Biological Sciences (BioSci), Michigan Technological University, will present as part of the BioSci Seminar Series today (Feb. 15) from 3-4 p.m. in GLRC 202.

Rono's presentation is titled "Targeting phosphodiesterase: A potential strategy to treat LKB1-mutant cancers."

From the abstract:
Cancer heterogeneity poses numerous challenges to treatment, underscoring the need for personalized/targeted therapies that align with each patient's specific genetic and molecular disease profile. Metabolic deregulation, often correlating with oncogenic alterations, is commonly observed in cancers. Such deregulation frequently presents metabolic vulnerabilities within the cancer, which could potentially be exploited for targeted therapy. Liver Kinase B1 (LKB1), a protein known for its diverse roles in cellular metabolism and its critical function as a tumor suppressor, ranks as the third most frequently mutated gene in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). LKB1 mutations are linked to accelerated tumor progression and invasion, resulting in adverse clinical outcomes. Our research uncovers a novel role for LKB1 in cyclic nucleotide metabolism, wherein it suppresses a set of phosphodiesterase (PDE) expressions. Specifically, LKB1 represses PDE3 via the activation of the downstream salt-inducible kinase. Our data demonstrate that PDE3 modulators can selectively eliminate LKB1-deficient tumor cells while leaving LKB1-wildtype cells unharmed. However, some LKB1-deficient cells develop resistance due to the loss of SLFN12, whose expression is required for PDE3 modulator-induced cell death. Interestingly, this resistance can be overcome by inducing SLFN12 expression, through either epigenetic inhibitors or cAMP inducers. These findings not only broaden our understanding of the role of LKB1 in metabolic regulation but also suggest a promising strategy for targeted therapy against LKB1-mutant cancers.


BioSci Seminar Series Speaker: Ryan Heines

M.S. candidate Ryan Heines (advised by Jill Olin), Department of Biological Sciences (BioSci), Michigan Technological University, will present as part of the BioSci Seminar Series today (Feb. 15) from 3-4 p.m. in GLRC 202.

Heines' presentation is titled "Mechanisms of co-occurrence among sympatric saltmarsh fishes of coastal Louisiana."

From the abstract:
Saltmarsh nekton play key ecological roles in supporting terrestrial and aquatic food webs by linking production resources to higher trophic levels. Inter- and intra-specific competition for shared resources plays an important role in structuring communities through resource partitioning. On-marsh Cyprinodontoid fishes are widely distributed in coastal Louisiana saltmarshes and have evolved to tolerate the highly variable environmental conditions that are characteristic of these habitats. These species can occupy and disperse among different marsh subhabitats (ponds, creeks, marsh surface) and we hypothesize in subhabitats with low connectivity, such as isolated ponds, diversity and abundance are high and competition for resources is therefore anticipated to be greatest. In order to understand how these fishes co-occur, our first objective was to use bulk stable isotope ratios of carbon (δ13C), sulfur (δ34S), and nitrogen (δ15N) to investigate the intra- and inter-specific resource use of six sympatric Cyprinodontiform species residing in saltmarsh ponds near Port Sulphur, Louisiana. Results indicate some inter- and intra-specific resource partitioning based on basal resource diet contributions. However, there is a high isotopic niche overlap among these species suggesting competition for resources in these habitats and other mechanisms beyond may also be contributing to the high densities observed in these ponds. The second objective of this study will explore one proposed mechanism from the first objective and involve the use of behavioral feeding trials to test the effect of intraguild predation on the foraging habits and strength of coexistence amongst three highly abundant Fundulid species. Results indicate that competitive interactions may cause shifts in the feeding behavior and preferred resource use of Fundulus xenicus. This research provides insights to mechanisms of community assembly and niche dynamics of sympatric Cyprinodontoid fishes in coastal Louisiana, particularly in spatially limited pond habitats.
