October 2013

Friday, October 4, 2013 — 11:30 to 12:30 AM to 12:30 PM EDT
Dr. Poupak Mehrani Chemical and Biological Engineering Department University of Ottawa   Fluidized beds including those of gas-phase are widely used in industry due to their excellent features including providing high degree of mixing, heat transfer, mass transfer, to just name a few. In this talk a brief summary of research presently carried out by my research team in the areas of polymerization and clean energy, where fluidized bed reactors are employed, will be presented.

Daniel P. Sellan, PhD
Postdoctoral Fellow
The University of Texas at Austin

My research is in the area of heat transfer science and engineering, an emerging field that seeks to develop an understanding of energy transport at an atomistic and carrier level [e.g., phonon (lattice vibration), photon, electron, and fluid particle]. I use a combination of atomistic calculations, statistical thermodynamics, traditional heat transfer analysis, and bulk and micro/nanoscale experiments to solve critical problems in energy research.

Mousa Jafari, PhD Post-Doctoral Fellow University of Waterloo   RNA interference is a post-transcriptional gene silencing process whereby short interfering RNAs (siRNAs) induce the sequence-specific degradation of complementary messenger RNA. Despite their promising therapeutic capabilities, siRNA-based strategies suffer from enzymatic degradation and poor cellular uptake. Several carrier-based approaches have been employed to enhance the stability and efficiency of siRNA delivery.

"Improving Supercapacitor Performance by Functionalization and Interfacial Assembly of Graphene"

Abstract

Wednesday, October 30, 2013 — 11:30 to 11:30 AM EDT
Aiping Yu, PhD,  Assistant Professor, Chemical Engineering, University of Waterloo   Abstract: Graphene is recognized as one of the nanomaterials that could revolutionize numerous industries over a wide range of sectors due to its distinctive properties, including large specific surface area, high electrical and thermal conductivity, good chemical stability, ultrahigh mobility, as well as great mechanical strength and Young’s modulus.
