CBE Seminar: “No Equations, No Variables, No Space, No Time: Data and the Modeling of Complex Systems”

Abstract Obtaining predictive dynamical equations from data lies at the heart of science and engineering modeling, and is the linchpin of our technology. In mathematical modeling, one typically progresses from observations of the world (and some serious thinking!) first to equations for a model, and then to the analysis of the model to make predictions. […]

BE Seminar: “Synthetic Biochemistry: Engineering Molecules and Pathways for Precision Medicine” (Michael Lin)

Update 9/2/21: Unfortunately due to the flooding in Philadelphia we will not be able to hold this seminar on campus. Check your email for the zoom link or contact The most effective medicines are those that target the earliest causes of disease, rather than later manifestations. Engineering of biomolecules is a promising but underexplored […]

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

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 […]

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

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 | “Structures Formed By Colloids at Curved Fluid Interfaces”

Abstract:  Colloidal particles accumulate and organize at fluid interfaces via capillary interactions. We study pair interactions and structure formation around spherical particles with pinned contact lines. Particles attract to apparent contact and organize in near trapped structures that reflect the underlying curvature field. We have derived pair potentials to describe these interactions. The particles distort […]

CBE PhD Dissertation Defense | Understanding and Predicting the Chemical Properties of Complex Oxides using First-principles Methods

Abstract:  Transition metal oxides are at the forefront of several applications in catalysis, energy conversion and storage, and are bound to play a pivotal role in our transition to a sustainable energy future. However, vast differences in the electronic structure among different transition metal oxides make them highly complex materials to understand and predict chemical […]

CBE PhD Dissertation Defense | Designing MXene Catalysts for Clean Energy Chemistries using High-Throughput First-Principles Calculations and Data-Driven Methods

Abstract:  The field of heterogeneous catalysis has been prompted to shift toward designing catalysts that can perform beneficial chemistries at ambient conditions. Such materials should have high activity and stability and avoid issues prevalent in other traditional catalysts that are not earth-abundant, chemically efficient, or with high selectivity to carry out these reactions. In this […]
