Join us for a new episode of The Graduates on Tuesday, September 27th @ 9AM as we speak with biologist Nick Burnett about his work in biomechanics. Nick is a PhD candidate in the Department of Integrative Biology. His research focuses on the biomechanics of intertidal sea kelp in the Pacific Ocean, and more specifically, what makes them able to survive in such a tumultuous environment. During the interview, Nick also talks about applying his research to other things that tangle, such as hair, and what it’s like when your field site is in the ocean.
The Graduates, highlighting student research at Berkeley and around the world, is broadcast every other Tuesday at 9AM on KALX. Past episodes are available to listen and download free on iTunes or online.
