The study of methanogenesis in wastewater biofilms and various aggregated methanogenic environmental samples with high spatial resolution can be achieved by using microbiosensor techniques. In this study, the fabrication of a microbiosensor for methane detection was studied. This microbiosensor...
Antimicrobial applications of treatments using light pulses emitted from light emitting diodes (LED)Download
Low water activity (aw) foods have been associated with several foodborne outbreaks and recalls. Eradication of foodborne microorganisms like Salmonella and Escherichia coli from low aw foods is challenging, as they are resistant to conventional decontamination practices. High intensity light...
The warm vaporized solvent injection process has been proposed as a more environmentally friendly alternative to steam-based technologies for bitumen recovery. The process typically involves injecting heated solvent vapor into a horizontal injector; the solvent condenses and dissolves into...
One of the central puzzles concerning the interaction of low Reynolds number (Re<<1) fluid transport with bacterial biomass is the formation of filamentous structures called bacterial streamer. Bacterial streamers can be tethered at one or both ends to solid surfaces, while the rest of the...
I investigated cellular mechanisms of ion and acid-base transport in rainbow trout (Oncorhyncus mykiss), crabs (Neohelice granulata), zebrafish (Danio rerio), Pacific hagfish (Eptatretus stoutii), and mosquito larvae (Aedes aegypti) with a primary focus on discerning the mechanisms governing ion...
Conductive Atomic Force Microscopy Study of Electron Transport Through Diazonium Derived Films and Mixed – Mode Bonded Layers on Gold and Carbon SurfacesDownload
For Molecular Electronics to become a viable replacement or complitment to current elec- tronic devices a fundamental understanding of device operation and functionality is needed. This work explores electron transport through diazonium derived molecular junctions via conductive atomic force...
Determination of biokinetic parameters of wastewater biofilms from oxygen concentration profilesDownload
The process of scale-up and rational optimization of biofilm processes for effective wastewater treatment and reuse require better understanding of the biokinetic behavior of microorganisms in the biofilms. At present, no fast and accurate methods exist for determining kinetic parameters for...
Microelectrodes can be used for profiling environmental biofilms. Currently there is no sulfate microelectrode available for studying sulfate reduction in biofilms. In this study, a sulfate microelectrode was fabricated and tested in measurement of environmental biofilms for the first time. The...
An experimental set up based on a diffusion bridge is developed to accurately determine the in-plane and through-plane permeability, Knudsen diffusivity and effective molecular diffusivity of gas diffusion layers used in PEFC. The parameters are estimated under various compression levels in...
Arsenic is a proven human carcinogen and associated with a myriad of other adverse health effects. This metalloid is methylated in human liver to monomethylarsonic acid (MMAV), monomethylarsonous acid (MMAIII), dimethylarsinic acid (DMAV), and dimethylarsinous acid (DMAIII) and eliminated...
