Achievements

Dr. Phil Bucolo is an aquatic community ecologist with a primary focus on lower food web dynamics
specifically algal and aquatic plant ecophysiology and biogeochemical processes. He is interested in the
environmental processes that drive organismal interactions and how those interactions affect aquatic
community ecology. His lab is currently involved in a number of research endeavors that include
undergraduate collaboration. Loyola biochemistry major Jared Chan and Dr. Bucolo are quantifying

Dr. Kelly Frailing was awarded the 2019-20 University Senate Award for Advising.  As a recipient of this award she was recognized for her outstanding commitment and dedication to Loyola's students and their success.

Congratulations to Loyola University New Orleans Environmental Science and Biology students in my research lab for successfully presenting their research at the 2019 National Association of Biology Teachers Professional Development conference in Chicago. They competed in the Undergraduate Mentored Research poster competition.  Katie Rompf, ENVB '20, placed 3rd in the competition and was awarded a cash prize and a one-year membership in the organization.

Magnetic materials are used in many devices for various applications. To optimize the performance of these devices, we need to characterize the materials as best as we can. In this paper and presentation, I studied magnetic properties of an alloy, CoFeB, in a multilayer structure. CoFeB alloy is used in a new type of memory that is called “STT-MRAM”.

Congratulations to Loyola University New Orleans Environmental Science and Biology students in Dr. Aimée Thomas’ research lab for successfully presenting their research at the 2019 National Association of Biology Teachers Professional Development conference in Chicago. They competed in the Undergraduate Mentored Research poster competition. 

Katie Rompf, ENVB '20, placed 3rd in the competition for her research and was awarded a cash prize and a one-year membership in the organization. Her research focuses on the Brown Widow, Latrodectus geometricus, an invasive, venomous species of spiders whose population increases in urban and suburban habitats, including New Orleans. The Brown Widow secretes a neurotoxic venom that immobilizes prey by attacking the nervous system.

ENVA Director Dr. Aimee Thomas, and Dr. Bob Thomas were recently featured on a Fox 8 Halloween segment covering snakes and spiders, and why they're not as scary as one might think. Click here to watch the segment!

As Halloween approaches, Dr.s Aimee Thomas and Bob Thomas appear on Fox 8 News Program on October 29, 2019 sharing information about spiders and snakes. Click here to watch the news segment. 

Congratulations to Champaign Cunningham and Dr. Hood on their appearance on Fox 8! Their program focused on bats and the bat based events being held this fall at Loyola.

Congratulations to Abby Perez (BIOL'20) and Chloe Dupleix (BIOL'20) for receiving the Loyola Strength in Diversity grant to fund the Late Nights at Loyola events that they will co-direct this academic year.  We would love for all of you to come see what our students are doing to make a difference with kids who attend Anna's Place, a non-profit organization that aims to enrich inner city, economically disadvantaged, at-risk youth in the Nola area.
