Exploring the large-scale structure of Taylor–Couette turbulence through Large-Eddy Simulations
(Journal of Physics: Conference Series, 2018)
Large eddy simulations (LES) of Taylor-Couette (TC) flow, the flow between two co-axial and independently rotating cylinders are performed in an attempt to explore the large-scale axially-pinned structures seen in experiments ...
Digital Philanthropy in the Smithsonian
I researched how online fundraising could be more successful for non-profits. In my research, I created a digital philanthropy campaign, in which I outlined ways to utilize social media and emails to help with fundraising, ...
Image Classification of Dewetting Microscopy Using Artificial Neural Networks
Contemporary methods to analyze dewetting stages from optical microscopy are limited to manual classification. The project seeks to automate this process by using image processing techniques and machine learning. Magnitude ...
Development of ultrasensitive lateral flow assays based on horseradish peroxidase enzyme reporters
Lateral flow assays (LFAs), the basis of the home pregnancy test, have been widely used in medical diagnosis, environmental monitoring and forensics. LFAs are attractive point-of care diagnostics due to many reasons, ...
Return to Roots: An Investigation of the History, Products, and Processes of the Sears Catalog and Creation Space
How did technology affect craft and people, and change the means of making? The Sears Catalog has a rich history. In twenty years, the company expanded from a flyer selling jewelry, to multiple catalogs selling endless ...
Metal Ion Uptake in Lactobacillus Plantarum as a Model Organism for Studying the Human Gut Microbiota
The human body maintains a commensal relationship with millions of microbes, known as the microbiota. Most of these microbes are found in the gastrointestinal tract, where they digest food, take up nutrients, and protect ...
Aspects Affecting the Expression of Hypoxia-Inducible Factors in Cardiomyocytes
By comparing the immunofluorescent images of each of the wells containing cells in different conditions, we can compare signals that are relevant to diabetic cardiomyopathy change HIF expression, activity, or localization. ...
Determining the Relationship Between Crystal Structure and Ionic Conductivity of Solid-State Electrolytes
Solid-state electrolytes, or superionic conductors, are a promising method of energy storage as a safer alternative to conventional, flammable Li-ion batteries. However, the implementation of solid-state batteries is limited ...
Opportunity + Appeal: Abu Dhabi, Saudi Arabia
with the spread of people all over the globalizing world, abu dhabi has created a desert oasis and is feverishly trying to attract firms and citizens from all over.
Opportunity + Appeal: Dublin, Ireland
Globally fluent cities are "metropolitan areas that are appealing, open, and opportunity-rich which serve as magnets for attracting people and firms from around the world," according to the Brookings Institution. Dublin ...
