CBE PhD Dissertation Defense | “Bijels for Continuous Reactive Separation”

July 15 at 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM
Zoom – Email CBE for link

Abstract:  Several chemical processes involve the use of mutually immiscible molecules, for example a water-soluble catalyst is used in combination with oil-soluble reagents to produce water soluble products. There are two possible strategies to run these processes. A mutual solvent can be used to promote mixing of the otherwise immiscible molecules; however, such a system […]

CBE PhD Dissertation Defense | “Diverse Roles of Nuclear Intermediate Filaments in Proliferating Cells”

July 15 at 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM
Zoom – Email CBE for link

Abstract:  Embryonic tissues and cancer have in common the fact that they are both highly proliferative tissues rapidly moving through the cell cycle, as opposed to most other differentiated tissues in an adult. DNA damage can arrest some embryonic cells but genetic instability is a hallmark of cancer. This thesis studies the contrasting role of […]

MEAM PhD Thesis Defense: “Modular Robots Morphology Transformation and Task Execution”

July 15 at 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM
Zoom – Email MEAM for Link, peterlit@seas.upenn.edu

Self-reconfigurable modular robots are composed of a small set of modules with uniform docking interfaces. Different from conventional robots that are custom-built and optimized for specific tasks, modular robots are able to adapt to many different activities, and handle hardware and software failures by rearranging their components. This reconfiguration capability allows these systems to exist […]
