A new microscopic imaging system is revealing a never-before-seen view of the underwater world. Researchers from Scripps Institution of Oceanography at UC San Diego have designed and built a diver-operated underwater microscope to study millimeter-scale processes as they naturally occur on the seafloor.
Henrik Christensen, one of the most influential robotics researchers in the world, is joining the UC San Diego. He will direct the UC San Diego Contextual Robotics Institute and serve as a professor in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at the Jacobs School of Engineering.
UC San Diego student-athlete Reilly Boyt was named to the 2016 U.S. Paralympic Swimming Team and will compete in the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games this September. Boyt, who will be a junior in the UC San Diego swimming and diving program come the fall, is among a group of 21 women and 10 men chosen to represent Team USA in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. She is one of 14 first-time Paralympians on the squad.
