  • Can collaborative systems science methods improve intervention strategies to reduce alcohol-related problems?

    Wed, Feb 22, 2023 @ 02:00 PM - 03:00 PM

    Computer Science

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars

    Speaker: Dr. Christina Mair, Associate Professor and Vice Chair for Research in the Department of Behavioral and Community Health Sciences at the University of Pittsburgh School of Public Health

    Talk Title: Can collaborative systems science methods improve intervention strategies to reduce alcohol-related problems?

    Abstract: Systems science approaches, such as agent-based models, provide the opportunity to compare a range of intervention implementation strategies in a simulated environment. The usefulness of a given model, however, is limited by its accuracy, focus, and salience to end users. In this talk, Dr. Mair will share a collaborator-designed systems model of alcohol-involved sexual violence on college campuses currently being developed through a series of collaborative model building sessions with a learning collaborative. Integrating collaborative model building with agent-based model development is an innovative, empirically-based approach that can improve implementation of effective strategies to address alcohol-involved sexual violence, promote preventive interventions, and stimulate campus-level policy and programmatic changes to reduce sexual violence among students.

    This lecture satisfies requirements for CSCI 591: Research Colloquium.

    Location: Register for the Zoom webinar here: https://usc.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_O3DV23rCQNug1Plxj01MbA

    Biography: Dr. Mair is an Associate Professor and Vice Chair for Research in the Department of Behavioral and Community Health Sciences at the University of Pittsburgh School of Public Health, with secondary appointments in the Clinical and Translational Sciences Institute and Department of Epidemiology. She also serves as Director of the Center for Social Dynamics and Community Health and Associate Director of the Public Health Dynamics Lab. Her research seeks to understand structural and contextual influences on substance use-related problems with the goal to reduce these problems in community settings.

  • AME Seminar

    Wed, Feb 22, 2023 @ 03:30 PM - 04:30 PM

    Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars

    Speaker: David Doan, Stanford University

    Talk Title: Strategies to Achieve Order: Colloidal Self-Assembly and Nano-Enhanced Additive Manufacturing

    Abstract: Achieving order is key to the improvement of materials properties in applications such as mechanics, catalysis, and photonics. Colloidal self-assembly has been a field of interest due to its ability to manipulate nanoscale/microscale particles to create periodic structures. However, a challenge in this field is the ability to expand the possible phase space of crystal structures that can be formed. Here, we explore the fundamentals of shape- or entropy-driven self-assembly to achieve different types of order. I will discuss an experimental framework that allows us to fabricate particles of complex shapes using two-photon lithography and assemble them under a gravitational field. I will present experimental, analytical, and computational results for the self-assembly of truncated tetrahedrons on a 2D interface.

    I will also present on enhancing mechanical properties through the addition of atomically precise nanoclusters in polymeric structures to create nanocomposites. This, in conjunction with two-photon lithography, allows us to fabricate strong but lightweight structures of arbitrary shapes. We show that these nanoclusters enhance the overall mechanical properties of the structure, above what is expected from simple composite theory.

    Biography: David Doan is currently a PhD candidate in Mechanical Engineering at Stanford University under the supervision of Professor Wendy Gu, with a planned graduation in mid-2023. He received his Masters degree in Mechanical Engineering at Stanford and Bachelors degree in Mechanical Engineering at MIT. He is an NSF Graduate Fellow and Questbridge Scholar. His current research focuses on the fundamentals of self-assembly and mechanics but eventually wants to develop more scalable fabrication techniques that connect the nanoscale to the macroscale.
