Dr. Elizabeth Basha, a graduate of both Pacific and MIT, joined the Pacific faculty in Fall 2010. Professor Basha recently received a National Science Foundation (NSF) award for a project in collaboration with the University of Nebraska, Lincoln. The three-year grant will investigate the use of aerial robotics to wirelessly transfer power to maintain sensor network systems. This project builds the power transfer system, develops algorithms for selecting nodes to recharge on both the UAV and sensor network side, and extends power management solutions on the sensor networks.UAV - Bridge
This research introduces novel recharging systems and algorithms to supplement existing systems and lead to autonomous, sustainable energy management on sensor networks. Applications such as bridge fault detection that rely on sensor networks operating away from buildings often lack energy for long-term monitoring. In these scenarios, traditional recharging methods (e.g. solar panels) are unavailable or cannot provide sufficient energy (e.g. at night).
Dr. Basha has also created a new graduate course in robotics that began in Spring 2013, along with an undergraduate version that launched in Spring 2014. This three-year grant has also supported our Masters Program with MSES students contributing to the research as well as completing thesis on this project. Interested undergraduate students have also been able to contribute to the research on this project.

I am interested in how political parties and voters adapt to new situations, in particular how parties and voters have responded to devolution in the UK and beyond. I have conducted research on party organisational changes in Spain and Britain, investigating and codifying the relationship between the central level of statewide parties and their ‘regional’ branches. In the context of devolution, I am increasingly interested in the issue of citizens’ response to devolution and citizens’ understanding of devolution, and what they mean for democratic accountability.
In addition, I have recently developed an interest in ‘unusual’ voting situations such as external voting (expatriate vote in national elections) and the vote of non-national EU citizens in the local, devolved and European elections (EU citizens voting in a country other than their own).
Finally, I remain interested in French politics. I have become country co-ordinator (France) for the Political Party Database Working Group, a research network that studies and gathers comparative quantitative data on the organisation of political parties across 19 countries.
I am the co-convenor of the ECPR Standing Group on Federalism and Regionalism and book review editor for Regional and Federal Studies. I am also on the editorial board of the journal Fédéralisme et Régionalisme.

I trained as a tree pathologist and spent ten years in Asia working first on a bamboo disease in Bangladesh and then on clove trees in Indonesia on UK aid projects. I've worked around the world, first with the Natural Resources Institute then with CABI for 17 years. My dominant interest for the last 20 years has been in farmer support, stimulated through the development and introduction of plant health clinics to Bolivia, Uganda, Bangladesh and beyond. More recently I have been attached to the University of Aberdeen, where I've returned to an interest in ash trees - the subject of my PhD way back then.
In a varied career that has included studying wild mushrooms in Malawi and bamboo for rural development, it is sometimes difficult to give a concise description of what I do. Hence this rather long-winded explanation. But the main theme has been bridging gaps between the science I love and the people for whom it is intended, whether they are cocoa farmers in DRC (which I visit regularly) or members of the public worrying about the health of the trees in the UK.
