July in photos–from robo-mussels to microgreens (and more)

Sahana Simonetti, Helmuth lab manager and a recent marine biology graduate of Northeastern, carries a Trimble GPS gingerly over the rocks on the shore of the Nahant campus. The device helps Simonetti locate the team’s “robomussels” and other temperature loggers dispersed along the shoreline. Photo by Alyssa Stone/Northeastern University

The hot, hazy days this July left plenty of time for cutting-edge research and crowded tours at Northeastern’s verdant campuses. The seasonable month had plenty of ocean-based studies, from kelp forests to robotic mussels. Members of the Facilities Division had their annual summer BBQ and the Northeastern African Student Organization got a jump start on naming their new leadership. See all this and more through the lenses of Northeastern’s award-winning photographers.
