Daily activity and light exposure levels for five species of lemurs at the duke lemur center
(American Journal of Physical Anthropology, 2014-01-01)
Light is the primary synchronizer of all biological rhythms, yet little is known about the role of the 24-hour luminous environment on nonhuman primate circadian patterns, making it difficult to understand the photic niche ...
Dimensional dependence of the Stokes-Einstein relation and its violation
(Journal of Chemical Physics, 2013-10-28)
We generalize to higher spatial dimensions the Stokes-Einstein relation (SER) as well as the leading correction to diffusivity in finite systems with periodic boundary conditions, and validate these results with numerical ...

Configurational entropy measurements in extremely supercooled liquids that break the glass ceiling.
(Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America, 2017-10-10)
Liquids relax extremely slowly on approaching the glass state. One explanation is that an entropy crisis, because of the rarefaction of available states, makes it increasingly arduous to reach equilibrium in that regime. ...
The Externalities of Inequality: Fear of Crime and Preferences for Redistribution in Western Europe
(American Journal of Political Science, 2016-04)
© 2016 by the Midwest Political Science Association. Why is the difference in redistribution preferences between the rich and the poor high in some countries and low in others? In this article, we argue that it has a lot ...

Sensorimotor learning during a marksmanship task in immersive virtual reality
(Frontiers in Psychology, 2018-02-06)
Sensorimotor learning refers to improvements that occur through practice in the performance of sensory-guided motor behaviors. Leveraging novel technical capabilities of an immersive virtual environment, we probed the component ...
