Polymer brushes are a common feature in many biological surfaces. The ability to rapidly transform a substrate from a hard, structural material to a soft, hydrogel structure over the course of a few tens of nanometers makes polymer brushes elegant materials for tailoring the biology-materials interface. Polymer brushes, because of their surface confinement, are typically […]

In my talk, I will first describe one of the main projects in my lab that investigates the underlying cellular-molecular mechanisms for changes in alcohol sensitivity of crayfish with different prior social experiences. In this context, I will explain why “simple” invertebrates may provide unique advantages for studying complex phenomena such as socially-dependent drug effects. […]

CIS Seminar: “A Geometric Perspective on Computing Motion”

October 3 at 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM
Wu and Chen Auditorium (Room 101), Levine Hall, 3330 Walnut Street

Abstract: The connections between geometry and mechanics have been explored for centuries. How these connections shape computation is a question we are just beginning to explore.  If computers can predict how materials move and deform, they can help us to understand, anticipate and manipulate the physical world. Our group develops models and algorithms that capture the characteristic behavior […]
