Sustainable Demonstration House: Retrofit an Existing, Older Home into an Energy Efficient Residence

The Alternative Energy Enterprise at Michigan Tech will retrofit an existing, older home into an energy efficient residence, incorporating renewable energy generation. The goal is to set up a Sustainable Demonstration House to serve as a resource for the broader community to learn about, test and experience energy efficient/low carbon living.

Can a Good Night's Sleep Prevent Heart Disease? Exploring Sleep Apnea

Sleep disorders affect nearly one in three adults. Since chronic sleep deprivation leads to cardiovascular disease—the number one killer in the United States for almost 100 years—this is a critical health issue. We will investigate sleep disorders in great depth to better understand the connection between sleep apnea and cardiovascular disease.

Investigating the Sustainability of the Ship-Recycling Industry in Bangladesh

This project will improve the sustainability of the ship-recycling industry in Bangladesh, where millions of tons of metal are recovered from hundreds of beached container ships, oil tankers, and cruise liners annually. We will investigate how recycled metal flows through the metal smith community in Dhaka, and identify improvements that reduce environmental impacts and maintain social networks.

Restoration of Coaster Brook Trout and Their Endangered River

Lake Superior is home to an at-risk form of migratory brook trout (called coasters), some of which spawn in local rivers. These fish were once common throughout the lake, but there is now only one verified breeding population of coasters along the south shore. These fishes’ primary spawning sites are being filled in by sedimentation, but we hope to save the habitat—and boost the population to healthy levels.
