CBE Seminar: “Insights into Active Site Structures for Bimetallic Heterogeneous Catalysts”

February 17 at 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM
Zoom – Email CBE for link

Abstract I will describe three examples investigating the use of bimetallic catalysts for reaction systems of industrial relevance and explore the origins of their improved performance. Investigation of Pd-based bimetallic catalysts for the selective hydrogenation of acetylene and for hydrodechlorination of 1,2-dichloroethane will be explored. Additionally, Pt-based bimetallic catalysts for the hydrogenation of a model […]

CIS Seminar: “IDEs for Ideas”

February 17 at 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Abstract: A Jupyter notebook, a preprint from arXiv, and a Stack Overflow code snippet. What do they all have in common? All convey complex ideas from a writer to an audience. However, the tools to create and read them have not kept pace with the complexity of their contents. What would it look like if […]

Spring 2021 GRASP SFI: “Model-Based Deep RL for Robotics”

February 17 at 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Abstract: Deep learning has shown promising results in robotics, but we are still far from having intelligent systems that can operate in the unstructured settings of the real world, where disturbances, variations, and unobserved factors lead to a dynamic environment. In the first part of the talk, I will show that model-based deep RL can […]

ODEI Spotlight: The Masc We Live In – Cultural Implications of Masculinity

February 17 at 5:00 PM - 6:00 PM

Join us as we host an open discussion on masculinity in different cultural contexts and the intersections of race, religion and other factors which influence how we view, interpret, and navigate masculinity. This is the first of four conversations in our ongoing discussion series for the Spring Semester. All gender identities welcome. The event is […]
