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

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 […]

CBE PhD Dissertation Defense | A Scalable, Point-of-Care Microfluidic Approach for Assessing Thrombosis and Hemostasis

Abstract:  Coagulation testing is an important diagnostic tool for the detection of excessive bleeding risk or obstructive clot formation (thrombosis), using blood samples from patients. Microfluidic flow devices have been well established to provide insights on the impacts of shear rate, drug action, and disease state on coagulation and platelet biology. The bulk of the […]

ODEI Spotlight: Blindspot: Hidden Biases of Good People

The purpose of the seminar, Blindspot: Hidden Biases of Good People, is to reveal the surprising and even perplexing ways in which we make errors in assessing and evaluating others when we recruit and hire, onboard and promote, lead teams, undertake succession planning, and work on behalf of our clients or the public we serve. […]

CBE PhD Dissertation Defense | A Computational Approach to the Study of Trauma

Abstract:  Trauma with hypovolemic shock is an extreme pathological state that challenges the body to maintain blood pressure and oxygenation in the face of hemorrhagic blood loss. In conjunction with surgical actions and transfusion therapy, survival requires the patient’s blood to maintain hemostasis to stop bleeding. The physics of the problem are multiscale: (1) the […]

CBE Seminar: “Robots That Eat, Breathe and Bleed”

Abstract Modern robots lack the multifunctional, interconnected chemical systems found in living organisms and, consequently, exhibit reduced efficiency and autonomy. At the same time, new advancements in chemistry are enabling synthetic materials with capabilities that surpass biological materials. This talk will discuss how advances in electrochemistry and soft materials can transform the way we build […]
