Masters Dissertation: " Determination of Gross Alpha and Gross Beta Radioactivity Level of Different Kinds of Marbles " examines the different approaches to capable of eliminating the background radiation and detecting the alpha and beta radiations from marble samples collected from different regions in the country, using Geiger counters and special software. In the time that was spent in a laboratory setting, I was able to develop important experimental skills and laboratory techniques, which include labeling, utilizing different kinds of tools and instruments, and drafting sketches of step by step experimental procedures.
B.S Thesis Project : " Theory of Chaos " examines the different approaches to how a small change in initial conditions can drastically alter the long-term behavior of physical systems. For example, the electrochemical signals in the heart indicating unpredictability, or chaos can trigger a heart attack and also, a reduced standard deviation of heartbeat intervals can lead to increased mortality.
