ESE Seminar: “Control of Light and Heat for New Energy Applications”

March 28 at 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Light carries energy and heat, and plays a key role in many energy-conversion processes. The capabilities to tailor electromagnetic energy transfer at the nanoscale represent important opportunities for novel energy applications. In this talk I will present two sets of studies integrating experiments and theory. In the first part, I will discuss how to use […]

Though rooted in pure mathematics, algebraic topology has recently enabled novel analysis techniques for biological data. Specifically, the method called persistent homology which employs ideas from topology to characterize the voids in a complex network. In this talk, I will briefly introduce persistent homology and give an overview of how we have recently applied this […]

At the macroscale, synchronization between brain regions is believed to be important for memory and attention. Injury, including mild traumatic brain injury, can both increase and decrease synchronization as measured by functional MRI, but these changes are not well understood and are unknown at a smaller spatial scale. Here, we examined how injury affects the […]

Abstract: Systems models of key signaling pathways in cancer have been extensively used to understand and explore the mechanisms of action of drugs and growth factors on cancer cell signaling. In general, such models predict the effect of mechanical or chemical stimuli (for e.g. drug dosage) in terms of activity of one or more key […]

The state of security across the Internet is poor, and it has been so for years. Meanwhile, attacks have become ever more frequent and consequential. How do we actually make meaningful progress? To do so, we must move beyond the folklore that heavily influences Internet security practices today, and establish 1) empirical grounding on how […]
