CBE PhD Dissertation Defense | Hydrodeoxygenation of Biomass-Derived Model Compounds Over Bifunctional Catalysts

April 23 at 11:00 AM - 12:30 PM
Zoom – Email CBE for link

Abstract:  The negative social and environmental impacts from burning of fossil fuels motivated the development of renewable and sustainable sources for the production of electricity such as wind and solar. Lignocellulosic biomass has emerged as a promising feedstock for carbon-based fuels and chemicals and much research effort has recently been directed at developing efficient catalytic […]

GRASP On Robotics: “Autonomous, Agile Micro Drones: Perception, Learning, and Control”

April 23 at 11:00 AM - 12:30 PM
Zoom

Abstract: Autonomous quadrotors will soon play a major role in search-and-rescue, delivery, and inspection missions, where a fast response is crucial. However, their speed and maneuverability are still far from those of birds and human pilots. High speed is particularly important: since drone battery life is usually limited to 20-30 minutes, drones need to fly […]

PICS Colloquium: “Network-Based Characterization, Modeling, and Control of Fluid Flows”

April 23 at 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM
Zoom – email kathom@seas.upenn.edu

The network of interactions in a sea of vortices gives rise to the amazingly rich dynamics of fluid flows. To describe these interactions, we consider the use of mathematical tools from the emerging field of network science that is comprised of graph theory, dynamical systems, data science, and control theory. In this presentation, we discuss […]
