Seminar: Siyuan Rao, Massachusetts Institute of Technology

January 30 @ 9:30 am - 10:30 am
NHB 1.720 United States + Google Map

The Department welcomes Siyuan Rao, Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Dr. Rao’s seminar is titled “Engineering Platform for Brain-Machine Interface”. Diagnosis of many mental diseases relies heavily on behavioral assessment. To understand the principles of neural circuitry mechanisms and develop effective treatments, it is essential to ensure the accuracy of behavioral tests to assay phenotypes. Which kinds of tool platform can reveal causality between behavioral output and cellular activity? Engineering approaches can provide fundamental support to establish the ideal tool platform,…

Seminar: Donna Blackmond, The Scripps Research Institute

February 4 @ 9:30 am - 10:30 am
NHB 1.720 United States

The Department welcomes Donna Blackmond, The Scripps Research Institute. Dr. Blackmond’s seminar is titled “Models for the Emergence of Biological Homochirality”. The single chirality of biological molecules has fascinated scientists and laymen alike since Pasteur’s first painstaking separation of the enantiomorphic crystals of a tartrate salt over 150 years ago. In the past several decades, a number of theoretical and experimental investigations have helped to delineate models for how one enantiomer might have come to dominate over the other from…

NHB 1.720 United States + Google Map

The Department welcomes Styliani Avraamidou, Texas A&M. Dr. Avraamidou's seminar is titled, "Towards a Circular Economy Systems Engineering Framework". Natural resources play a critical role in the development and wealth of societies. They are vital for the provision of energy, food, shelter, transport, and all basic human needs and societal functions. Population growth, welfare growth, and the constant need for an increasing standard of living create major stresses on natural resources. Their extraction and depletion, and the waste generated throughout…

Pirkey Endowed Seminar: Michael Chabinyc, University of California Santa Barbara

March 31 @ 9:30 am - 10:30 am
NHB 1.720 United States + Google Map

The Department welcomes our Pirkey Endowed Seminar speaker, Michael Chabinyc, University of California Santa Barbara. Dr. Chabinyc’s seminar is titled “Moving Charges in Semiconducting Polymers”. Organic semiconductors are candidates for next-generation thin film electronics in applications ranging from displays to energy conversion devices. Controlling the electrical doping of semiconducting polymers presents an important challenge towards achieving these goals. Intrinsic semiconducting polymers have low dielectric constants, whereas heavily doped materials are effectively organic salts. Understanding this transition between the two states…
