Research Videos

Mason conducts high-level research in a variety of areas. See how studies are conducted, the discoveries we make, and the knowledge we bring to the world.

Climate Action

Researchers led by faculty from Mason’s Volgenau School of Engineering and the School for Conflict Analysis and Resolution, are diving into how melting ice in the Arctic will affect the people, habitats, and social fabric. In a related study, new trade routes in the Arctic mean increased traffic and industrialization, so Mason’s Elise Miller-Hooks' team is looking at the impact on the region’s infrastructure and governance.


Mason's History

The Enslaved Children of George Mason project, led by Wendi Manuel-Scott and Benedict Carton, professors of history and art history, seeks to understand the life of the school’s namesake and those enslaved by him. Those stories have been compiled in an online archive, the Enslaved Children of George Mason. They also sparked honors and history classes that integrate the project’s research and the ideas it explored.

Ultrasound for Better Lives

Mason Engineering researchers are using cutting-edge ultrasound technology, using sound waves to sense muscle activity to help people get greater control of prosthetics for their arms, hands, and legs.  Students such as bioengneering major De’Andre Darby are participating in the studies. Other engineering researchers are using ultrasound to develop “active bandages” and implantable devices to improve healing in combat wounds.
