CBE Seminar: “The Refinery of Today, Tomorrow and the Future: A Separations Perspective”

Abstract The hydrocarbon processing industry is in the midst of a major shift in feedstocks, structure, and products. Aggressive carbon abatement targets and intrinsic efficiency advantages from electric vehicles strongly undercut the advantages of fossil fuels, which are the majority product of this industry. However, the immense value of the existing hydrocarbon infrastructure suggests that […]

CBE Seminar: “Electrolytes for High Energy Li-ion and Li Metal Batteries”

Abstract Electrolytes are critical enabling components for Li-ion batteries to safely operate within a wide temperature range, under extreme fast charging, and under intense abuse conditions without sacrificing energy density and cycle life. Current electrolytes cannot satisfy these requirements. We developed advanced all-fluorinated electrolytes, water-in-sale (WIS) electrolytes and solid-state electrolytes aiming to simultaneously enhance cell […]

CBE Seminar: “Shake It Off: Dynamics of Bacterial Adhesions at Interfaces”

Abstract Control over adhesion of bacteria on solid and liquid interfaces underlies a spectrum of practical applications, ranging from preventing the formation of destructive biofilms on medical devices and on resource pipelines to removing pollutants from water. Because microscale bacteria are similar in size to colloidal particles, bacterial adhesion has long been studied using models […]

CBE Seminar: “Engineering the Crystallization of Water Using Molecular and Biomolecular Agents”

Abstract The crystallization of water affects various processes, both globally and in our daily lives. Ice crystals cause freezing and death when they grow in the extracellular fluids of organisms living in sub-freezing conditions. Similarly, the formation of gas hydrates in flowlines transporting gas/oil causing safety and economic risks, and the release of methane from […]

MEAM Seminar: “Active Colloids in Nematics for Micro-robotics and Reconfigurable Systems”

Active colloids in nematic liquid crystals are exciting vehicles for materials manipulation. Colloid shape, surface chemistry and dynamic displacement can be designed to introduce defects whose non-linear dynamics generate new modalities of motion and interaction. These effects rely on energy conversion mechanisms, in which active colloids with tailored surface functionalization and shape seed defects and […]

PSOC@Penn Seminar: “Harnessing Biochemistry and Engineering to Visualize Metabolism” (Kayvan R. Keshari)

Oncogenic transformation has been shown to have a dramatic impact on the metabolic state of the cell. Recent reports have demonstrated that specific alterations in oncogenes and signaling pathways results in increases in pathway flux as well as diversion of substrates. Moreover, there is an argument that changes in metabolism can directly affect cell fate […]

CBE Joint Seminar: “Harnessing Biochemistry and Engineering to Visualize Metabolism”

ABSTRACT Oncogenic transformation has been shown to have a dramatic impact on the metabolic state of the cell. Recent reports have demonstrated that specific alterations in oncogenes and signaling pathways results in increases in pathway flux as well as diversion of substrates. Moreover, there is an argument that changes in metabolism can directly affect cell […]

CBE Seminar: “Design of Sequential Catalytic Solvolysis Process for Selectively Deconstructing Waste Plastics”

Abstract Environmental plastic problems have recently arisen as a core subject of global debate and concern. Plastic products for multiple applications have risen from 1.7 million in 1950 to 368 million tons in 2019 and are projected to reach 1,800 million tons by 2050. Recycling plastics and enabling the circular economy are essential to mitigate […]
