Characterizing water-in-oil emulsions with application to gas hydrate formation
This thesis implements nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) techniques to directly measure water-in-oil emulsion properties and gas hydrate formation. This thesis introduces a novel application of the pulsed field gradient ...
Finite element methods for viscoelastic fluid flow simulations: Formulations and applications
Complex fluid flow simulations are important in several industrial and biological applications, e.g., polymer processing, ink-jet printing, and human as well as artificial organs, and they pose several numerical challenges. ...
Stochasticity and cell population heterogeneity in an artificial lac operon genetic network
The purpose of this work is two-fold: (1) to develop a novel mathematical and computational framework that incorporates the major sources of cell population heterogeneity and (2) to use this framework to demonstrate the ...
Elucidating the connection between cell population heterogeneity and genetic regulatory architecture in specific artificial networks
Understanding the expression patterns of simple, synthetic gene regulatory networks will not only shed light into the complexity of naturally occurring networks, but it will also provide a platform for expression control ...
