Northeastern University recently hosted its first ever university-wide Showcase of Opportunities for Undergraduate Research and Creative Endeavor (SOURCE). More than 100 faculty members from across colleges and disciplines presented their ongoing research and creative projects, highlighting opportunities for undergraduate student involvement. Congratulations to everyone who made the event, which was held on September 25, 2019 on-campus in the Curry Student Center, such a success!
This year’s SOURCE event, which attracted more than 1,000 guests, was sponsored by the Office of the Chancellor in collaboration with Bouvé College of Health Sciences, College of Arts, Media and Design (CAMD), College of Engineering, College of Science, College of Social Sciences and Humanities, D’Amore-McKim School of Business, and Khoury College of Computer Sciences. The showcase was an opportunity for students to see firsthand how faculty members are advancing knowledge and practice in their fields—and working across traditional disciplinary boundaries—to address some of today’s most pressing and relevant challenges.
CAMD was thrilled to have eight faculty members there, representing a diverse range of disciplines and research areas. CAMD faculty members (and their research areas / expertise) who presented were:
Brandon Sichling, video game storytelling
Ann McDonald, visually synthesizing experience
Brooke Foucault Welles, networked communication and social change
Kristian Kloeckl, experience design
Paolo Ciuccarelli, data transformations
Dana Mueller, photography and independent publishing
Psyche Loui, music, cognition, and the brain

Peter Wiederspahn, flat/fold emergency shelter systems
