Research Topics

In class tonight (3/29) we each shared the topic of our research project with the rest of the class in 6 words (give or take). We would like to share this list with Gina prior to our meeting next Tuesday, but wanted to include the topics of folks who weren't in class today. Please add your topic if you weren't able to be in class tonight, or edit if you want to rephrase! Just FYI, this post is *public* so that it can be shared with Gina.
