In the latest edition of Discourse, the University of Regina’s online research magazine, discover:

The efforts of assistant professor of international studies Dr. Brian McQuinn and his colleagues to examine how militant groups around the world, including the Taliban, have used and are using social media to further their efforts.

Dr. Jennifer Gordon’s research into the increased risk of depression during the menopausal transition – the transition between a woman’s childbearing years and menopause. Gordon’s research into how sensitivities to hormonal changes might be tied to mood may lead to better pharmacological and behavioural treatments.

How biology professor Dr. Chris Somers is fishing for answers as anglers from Saskatchewan and across Canada use a new app called MyCatch to share information about the fish they catch. For Somers, the app allows for much greater data collection, where thousands of anglers can contribute thousands of hours of fieldwork, more than what researchers could possibly do on their own.

Catch these stories and more about University of Regina research in Discourse.
