Research Blogs

Our faculty and students exemplify the university’s commitment to research, exploring everything from biomedical engineering to social work.

Blogs are great way to capture the research activities, expertise and quality of research and education offered at FIU from a first person or expert perspective. Check out the blogs below for a look at FIU research.

Team Aotus

Follow student research activities at the DuMond Conservancy, home to over 50 owl monkeys. Through the conservancy’s partnership with FIU, students and volunteers study the behavior and development of the noctural primate.


Graduate student Rebecca Garvoille is co-editor of the American Anthropological Association’s blog, which highlights anthropologists and social scientists dedicated to solving pressing social and environmental problems.

Wading Through Research

Graduate students chronicle their experiences in Everglades research as part of the Florida Coastal Everglades Long-Term Ecological Research program. The program studies how hydrology, climate and human activities affect ecosystem and population dynamics in the Florida Coastal Everglades, and is part of the national LTER network established by the National Science Foundation.

Global Water for Sustainability

Follow news and updates from the Global Water for Sustainability (GLOWS) program. The consortium, led by FIU and funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), works to solve water issues throughout the world.
