CBE Seminar: “Bio-inspired Pathways to Manipulating Architecture and Mechanics in Polymeric Materials”

Abstract Fiber constructs are prevalent in natural systems, from collagen fiber networks in tendon to tough, spider silk fibers. Recent innovations in multilayer co-extrusion technology have translated to the fabrication of melt-extruded fiber-reinforced composites, reminiscent of the nanoscale features of the Brown Recluse Spider. Distinct advantages of this modular approach over other traditional techniques include […]

CBE PhD Dissertation Defense | Polymer Mechanics and Dynamics in Polymer Nanoparticle Composites

Abstract:  “Polymer nanoparticle composites (PNCs) have become an important topic of research due to their highly tunable macroscopic properties. Compared to the pure polymers, PNCs exhibit increase in mechanical strength, altered thermodynamic properties, and simultaneous improvement in permeability and selectivity in small molecule transport. Understanding the fundamental physics that control the behavior of both components […]

CBE Seminar: “Delineating Mechanisms of BMP-mediated Patterning and Organization During Development Through Integrative Experiment and Simulation”

Abstract The emergence of coordinated cellular, tissue, and organismal responses rely on complex biological networks. While the connectivity of the networks is increasingly defined, understanding the dynamics of the system and the emergence of coordinated responses at multiple spatial and temporal scales is an unsolved problem in many systems. This is a challenge addressed by […]
