On Monday May 15th, at 5pm AIChE will be showcasing project opportunities and graduate research UCR is currently making headway in. The event will be held in Bourns A265. We look forward to seeing you there!
Holly's research focuses is on the transport of foodborne pathogens in agricultural waters, and their attachment and removal from spinach leaf surfaces. This work aims to improve our knowledge of bacterial adhesion mechanisms on food surfaces and disinfectants’ efficacy in realistic, dynamic conditions .
Cory's research focuses on CRISPR-Cas9 gene editing system for use in a yeast strain that can produce useful lipids and polymers. The development will lead to new precursors for biofuels, specialty polymers, adhesives and fragrances.
Through optimized synthesis, Leo characterizes isolated Pt atoms and sub-nm Pt clusters on a metal oxide support and demonstrates their reactivity in comparison to larger Pt nanoparticles. Evidence shows they follow a different reaction mechanism which enables them to exhibit excellent CO oxidation activity while minimizing the cost through decreased metal usage.
Michael's research focuses on designing fluorochemicals and effective defluorination catalysts with the goal to develop a solution to environmental pollution with fluorochemicals.
