Advances in Observing the Wildfire Environment: Role of New Mobile Remote Sensing Systems.

Prof. Craig Clements describes the role of new mobile assets in monitoring the wildfire environment during the Rapid Deployments to Wildfires Experiment (RaDFIRE) was the first coordinated meteorological field campaign dedicated to observing fire-atmosphere interactions during large active wildfires to better understand extreme fire behavior.

Muscles Have Feelings Too: Understanding Stretch Sensitivity in the Muscle Spindle

 

Lecture by Prof. Katie Wilkinson 

Skeletal muscles don't just move you around, they also contain many sensory neurons that help you navigate the world around you and protect yourself from danger. Each muscle contains multiple muscle spindles, which are complex sensory organs. A better understanding of how muscle spindles work can allow us to treat human diseases that alter the function of the muscle spindle and design better sensors to be used in robots and artificial limbs.

Light-driven P450 biocatalysis featuring Ru(II) photosensitizers

 

Lecture by Prof. Lionel Cheruzel

Prof. Cheruzel and his team have pioneered the use of Ru(II) photosensitizers to activate P450 enzymes upon visible light excitation. He will present the initial proof of concept and the team's recent advances capitalizing on the functionalization of the inorganic complexes and the evolvability of the P450 enzymes.

Spartan Success Series - Leading Change: Small Things with Great Love

Featured Alum: Benjamin Henderson ('08), Government Field Representative. This session will provide context on how the killings of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and other African Americans have led to protests across America and the world. It will also list suggestions that people can take to help dismantle systemic racism in our society, while showing how racism and discrimination impacts us all. The session will conclude with an uplifting message for this current moment in history.

Recorded video coming soon.

A Geologic Perspective on assessing seismic risk in northern California

Lecture by Prof. Kim Blisniuk

 

Along the transform plate boundary between the Pacific and North American tectonic plates is a system of strike-slip faults that slice urban northern California into blocks. The movement of these blocks past one another produces earthquakes, one of the greatest natural hazards to affect northern California. In this talk, Prof. Blisniuk will summarize data that re-evaluates the seismic/earthquake risk of various faults in northern California from new field and laboratory data.
