Anthony Wexler

My research focuses on understanding the atmospheric processes that transport and transform particulate pollutants in the atmosphere and in lungs. Experimental and modeling approaches are employed. Focus is on urban and regional smog and global climate change. Experimental work includes developing new instruments and deploying them in the field. Modeling work includes simulation of particle dynamics in the urban and regional atmosphere related, vehicle emissions, and deposition in human airways.

Large predators often have disproportionately large impacts on ecosystems relative to other organisms, yet they have been vastly understudied relative to other taxonomic groups. With most large predators now in decline worldwide, our lab group’s focus is to better understand the physiology, behavior and ecology of predators so as to better inform their management and conservation. Our interests within this space are broad, however our current focus is on three main questions:

1. How do consumers influence population through community response to climate change?

Jennifer Wolch

Jennifer Wolch is a scholar of urban analysis and planning. Her past work focused on urban homelessness and the delivery of affordable housing and human services for poor people. She has also studied urban sprawl and alternative approaches to city-building such as smart growth and new urbanism. Her most recent work analyzes connections between city form, physical activity, and public health, and develops strategies to improve access to urban parks and recreational resources.

S. Felix Wu

I am part of the Computer Security group at UC Davis. In research, I am interested in security issues related to both networking and networked (if you can tell the difference) systems. Currently, I have been working on the following research areas: Unknown vulnerability analysis, IPSec/VPN Policy Management, Routing protocol security, Internet architecture, Mobility, Secure computer architecture, Email Antispam, Information Visualization for Security, Anomaly Analysis and Explanation. Very soon, I realized that I was probably interested in too many things.
