  • Feb 28: MolES Seminar: Justin Taraska, Nat'l Inst. of Health

    Tue Feb 28, 2017 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm | Tuesday, Feb 28, 2017, 12:30 - 1:30 p.m. PST Imaging the nanometer-scale structure of the plasma membrane with super-resolution light and electron microscopy.Abstract: How does a network of interacting proteins work to accomplish a complex cellular function with extreme temporal and spatial precision? The accumulation of a large body of knowledge over the last 50 years has paved the way to understand the biology of the cell in amazing detail. While many molecules have been discovered, their effects mapped by genetics and mutational analysis, and in some cases their three dimensional structures solved with x-ray crystallography and EM, we still do not fully understand the physical basis of many cellular events. I believe that by watching the functional behavior of these large meso-scale complexes in living cells—the native states of the enzymes—we will more clearly understand their complexity, regulation, and mechanisms. Past imaging methods, however, have been insufficient to provide the detailed 3D spatial information needed for this level of understanding. Thus, new tools had to be invented to peer into the living physical structure of cells. Given this challenge, my lab has two primary goals. First, we develop new ultra-high resolution imaging and quantitative analysis methods capable of measuring the structure and dynamics of proteins and protein complexes in situ. Second, we use these tools to visualize the molecules critical to membrane recycling. Both sides of my lab, the technical and biological, work together to achieve my long term goal of understanding the structural cell biology of exocytosis and endocytosis and to define the physical mechanisms of these events which are essential to cellular life. Bio: Dr. Justin Taraska Investigator Laboratory of Molecular Biophysics, National Institutes of Health My lab in the Laboratory of Molecular Biophysics, NHLBI, NIH, studies the fundamental mechanisms of exocytosis and endocytosis. I have a background in biology from Reed College with specific emphasis in cell biology. I obtained by PhD at the Vollum institute, OHSU where I developed new forms of microscopy to image single vesicles in neuroendocrine cells. I then expanded my training as a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Washington, where I learned biophysical methods including electrophysiology and fluorescence, to study protein structures. In my own lab at the NIH, I have continued to develop new methods in imaging single proteins and vesicles. We now work on super-resolution and electron microscopy techniques to study the nanometer-scale architecture of living cells. I am additionally the director of the analytical and quantitative light microscopy course at the Marine Biological Lab, Woods Hole, MA. Molecular Engineering and Sciences Seminar Series This weekly seminar brings together students, faculty and invited guests from various disciplines across campus to explore current trends in molecular engineering and nanotechnology.

  • Mar 3: HCDE Guest Lecture: Marynel Vázquez, Carnegie Mellon University

    Fri Mar 3, 2017 10:00 am - 11:00 am | Friday, Mar 3, 2017, 10 - 11 a.m. PST Beyond One-on-One Human-Robot Interactions While social robots are being produced for a variety of application domains, they still lack many of the abilities that enable people to interact with more than one person simultaneously. For example, people easily adapt to variations in their social context when the members of a conversation change. Humans can also recognize social norms that emerge in crowded environments. As robots become more capable in many domains, like education, health, and entertainment, these type of abilities become essential for them to integrate with and operate among people. Ms. Vázquez's research agenda aims to fill this gap by providing robots with the necessary capabilities to interact with and around multiple individuals. Her efforts focus on two complementary research directions to enable autonomy in these scenarios and to make robots better social actors. On the one hand, her work aims to make robot perception cognizant of social behavior in order to overcome the inherent perception challenges of these interactions. On the other, she creates systems to study the intricacies of multi-party encounters with robots and to explore social group phenomena in the context of Human-Robot Interaction (HRI). In this talk, Ms. Vázquez will show how these two research directions can help robots better understand human spatial behavior during group conversations. This capability improves robots’ human awareness as well as their communication skills, e.g., by enabling them to cooperate to sustain group spatial arrangements. As part of this talk, she will also describe several experimental methods that she designed to study human spatial behavior in HRI. These methods can be leveraged to further explore other interesting group phenomena with social robots. About Marynel Vázquez Marynel Vázquez is a PhD candidate working with Aaron Steinfeld and Scott E. Hudson in the Robotics Institute at Carnegie Mellon University. Her research crosses the boundaries between Human-Computer and Human-Robot Interaction to make interactive computing technologies meaningful, intuitive, and appropriate for users. Marynel was born in Venezuela, received her bachelor's degree in Computer Engineering from Universidad Simón Bolívar in 2008, and then obtained her MS in Robotics from Carnegie Mellon University in 2013. She is an active collaborator of Disney Research, and has been recognized for her scholarly achievements with scholarships from Apple and Google.

  • Mar 6: HCDE Guest Lecture: Justin Cheng, Stanford University

    Mon Mar 6, 2017 10:00 am - 11:00 am | Monday, Mar 6, 2017, 10 - 11 a.m. PST Antisocial Computing: Explaining and Predicting Negative Behavior Online Antisocial behavior and misinformation are increasingly prevalent online. As users interact with one another on social platforms, negative interactions can cascade, resulting in complex changes in behavior that are difficult to predict. Mr. Cheng's research introduces computational methods for explaining the causes of such negative behavior and for predicting its spread in online communities. It complements data mining with crowdsourcing, which enables both large-scale analysis that is ecologically valid and experiments that establish causality. First, in contrast to past literature which has characterized trolling as confined to a vocal, antisocial minority, he instead will demonstrate that ordinary individuals, under the right circumstances, can become trolls, and that this behavior can percolate and escalate through a community. Second, despite prior work arguing that such behavioral and informational cascades are fundamentally unpredictable, Mr. Cheng will demonstrate how their future growth can be reliably predicted. Through revealing the mechanisms of antisocial behavior online, his work explores a future where systems can better mediate interpersonal interactions and instead promote the spread of positive norms in communities. About Justin Cheng Justin Cheng is a PhD candidate in the Computer Science Department at Stanford University, where he is advised by Jure Leskovec and Michael Bernstein. His research lies at the intersection of data science and human-computer interaction, and focuses on cascading behavior in social networks. This work has received a best paper award, as well as several best paper nominations at CHI, CSCW, and ICWSM. He is also a recipient of a Microsoft Research PhD Fellowship and a Stanford Graduate Fellowship.

Members of the University of Washington community are welcome to attend.It isn’t Design without Sustainability The future requires designers to understand ecological, social, cultural, and financial sustainability in order to design successfully. It’s no longer an option or a “nice-to-have.” Even when our clients and peers don’t include sustainability criteria into project requirements, designers should work to build in these performance criteria and lessen impact regardless. We have a duty not only to our peers but, also, to our communities, our planet, and to our own values. It doesn’t take a separate degree. Just a couple books and projects and, you too, can become a sustainable designer. The principles, frameworks, tools, and strategies are well known (though we always need improved tools). They just have to be put into practice by those who care. About Nathan Shedroff Nathan Shedroff was the founder and chair of the ground-breaking Design MBA programs at California College of the Arts (CCA) in San Francisco, CA. This program prepares the next-generation of innovation leaders for a world that is profitable, sustainable, ethical, and truly meaningful by uniting the perspectives of systems thinking, design thinking, sustainability, and generative leadership into a holistic strategic framework. He is a pioneer in Experience Design, Interaction Design and Information Design, is a serial entrepreneur, and researches, speaks and teaches internationally about meaning, strategic innovation, business value, and science fiction interfaces. His many books include: Experience Design 1.1, Making Meaning, Design is the Problem, Design Strategy in Action, Make It So, and the new Blindspot. He holds an MBA in Sustainable Management from Presidio Graduate School and a BS in Industrial Design from Art Center College of Design. He worked with Richard Saul Wurman at TheUnderstandingBusiness and, later, co-founded vivid studios, a decade-old pioneering company in interactive media and one of the first Web services firms on the planet. vivid’s hallmark was helping to establish and validate the field of information architecture, by training an entire generation of designers in the newly emerging Web industry.

  • Mar 27: HCDE Guest Lecture: Sayamindu Dasgupta, Postdoctoral Fellow, University of Washington

    Mon Mar 27, 2017 10:30 am - 11:30 am | Monday, Mar 27, 2017, 10:30 - 11:30 a.m. PDT Learning with Data In the first part of this talk, Dr. Dasgupta will describe some of his work to develop quantitative techniques that help us understand how children learn in informal learning environments online. He will present some of his empirical data scientific studies of Scratch — an online community where tens of millions of young people learn to code in a rich social media context. In the second part, Dr. Dasgupta will describe his work to put the ability to do this type of learning and social media analytics into the hands of the children who use Scratch. He will focus on Scratch Community Blocks, a system he designed and deployed that lets children in the Scratch community programmatically analyze and visualize their own learning and social activity data. In addition to describing the design work behind the system, he will highlight how children using it (i) analyzed data and created visualizations in ways that connected with their interests, experiences, and aesthetic sensibilities, (ii)  self-reflected upon their own learning and social participation in Scratch, and finally (iii)  engaged in critiques that mirror some of the current critical scholarly debates around data science, reflecting on issues such as privacy and algorithmic bias. About Sayamindu Dasgupta Sayamindu Dasgupta is a Moore/Sloan & WRF Innovation in Data Science Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Washington. His research is situated at the intersection of data science, design, and the learning sciences where he uses data scientific methods to understand how children learn in large-scale informal online communities. Additionally, he also designs, deploys, and studies the uses of programming toolkits that enable children to engage in data science. His work has received recognitions and awards in the ACM CSCW, ACM IDC, and IEEE VL/HCC conferences, and in 2014, he was named in Forbes magazine’s 30 under 30 list for education. He received his doctorate from MIT, where he was a key member of the team behind the Scratch programming language and online community.

  • Apr 13: Clean Energy Institute Seminar: M. Stanley Whittingham, Binghamton University

    Thu Apr 13, 2017 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm | Thursday, Apr 13, 2017, 4 - 5 p.m. PDT The Ultimate Limits of Intercalation Reactions for Li-Batteries Over the last 40 years, lithium batteries have come from a novelty to dominating and enabling not only the power sources for portable electronics, but also those for electric vehicles and now grid storage. Without them, many of today’s electronics would not exist. They have achieved this success, whilst attaining less than 20% of their theoretical volumetric energy density. Substantial improvements are possible, and will be obtained through materials and engineering breakthroughs. However, there are ultimate limits to what intercalation-based cells can attain, around 1 kWh/liter and 350 Wh/kg at the cell level. It is unlikely that any other battery system will attain higher volumetric energy densities. Bio: Stan Whittingham is a SUNY distinguished professor of chemistry and materials science and engineering at SUNY Binghamton. He received his BA and D Phil degrees in chemistry from Oxford University. He has been active in Li-batteries since 1971 when he won the Young Author Award of the Electrochemical Society for his work on the solid electrolyte beta-alumina. In 1972, he discovered the role of intercalation in battery reactions, which resulted in the first commercial lithium rechargeable batteries that were built by Exxon. In 1988 he returned to academia at SUNY Binghamton to initiate a program in materials chemistry. He was awarded a JSPS Fellowship in the Physics Department of the University of Tokyo in 1993. In 2004 he received the Battery Division research Award. He is presently Director of the NECCES EFRC based at Binghamton. In 2012 he received the Yeager Award of the International Battery Association for his lifetime contributions to battery research; in 2015 he received the Lifetime Contributions to Battery Technology award from NAATBaaT. He is a Fellow of both the Electrochemical Society and the Materials Research Society. He is Vice-Chair, Board of Directors of the New York Battery and Energy Storage Technology Consortium (NYBEST).

  • Apr 27: Clean Energy Institute Seminar: Regan Zane, Utah State University

    Thu Apr 27, 2017 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm | Thursday, Apr 27, 2017, 4 - 5 p.m. PDT Transportation Electrification: Technologies Towards a Sustainable Future for Transportation Systems Transportation today consumes over 28% of energy use, produces more than 50% of air pollution, and costs more than $1.5 trillion annually in the US. The transportation sector is the final frontier for achieving the economic and environmental benefits of electrification. Adoption of an electrified system offers the potential benefits of reducing total emissions and cost of ownership by more than half over existing internal combustion engine vehicles. Electrification also offers a shift away from dependence on oil to a highly flexible and reliable electric grid, leveraging a wide range of local energy resources including sources of renewable energy. However, the transition has many challenges, apparent in the fact that after more than a decade on the market, all alternative fuel vehicles combined account for less than 1% of vehicles on the road. This talk will discuss the technical challenges limiting market adoption of electric vehicles, particularly those related to range anxiety, and overview new technologies in development at the Center for Sustainable Electrified Transportation (SELECT) aimed at overcoming these challenges and transforming the future of transportation. Bio Regan Zane is a Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering and Founder and Director of the Center for Sustainable Electrified Transportation (SELECT) at Utah State University. He leads a wide range of research programs in power electronics for electric vehicle drivetrains and charging infrastructure, battery management systems, and dc and ac micro-grids including grid integration of renewable energy sources and energy storage. His programs maintain a strong emphasis on working with government and industry to develop and transition technologies into the marketplace. Prof. Zane received the Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Colorado Boulder in 1999. Prior to joining USU, he was a faculty member at the University of Colorado-Boulder, Colorado Power Electronics Center, CoPEC, 2001 to 2012, and research engineer at GE Global Research Center, Niskayuna, NY, 1999 - 2001. He has co-authored over 120 publications and the textbook Digital Control of High-Frequency Switched-Mode Power Converters. He received the NSF Career Award in 2004, the 2005 IEEE Microwave Best Paper Prize, the 2007 and 2009 IEEE Power Electronics Society Transactions Prize Letter Awards and the 2008 IEEE Power Electronics Society Richard M. Bass Outstanding Young Power Electronics Engineer Award.

  • May 11: Clean Energy Institute Seminar: Mercouri Kanatzidis, Northwestern University

    Thu May 11, 2017 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm | Thursday, May 11, 2017, 4 - 5 p.m. PDT The Renaissance of Halide Perovskites: Poor Man’s Semiconductors There is a renaissance in an old class of materials. Organic-inorganic hybrid perovskites are a special class of semiconductors that have revolutionized the prospects of emerging photovoltaic technologies in the form of both light harvesters and hole transport materials. The inorganic chemistry of this class of materials is fascinating. These compounds adopt the ABX3 perovskite structure, which consists of a network of corner-sharing BX6 octahedra, where the B atom is a divalent metal cation (typically Ge2+, Sn2+ or Pb2+) and X is a monovalent anion (typically Cl−, Br−, I−); the A cation is selected to balance the total charge and it can be a Cs+ or a small molecular species. Such perovskites afford several important features including excellent optical properties that are tunable by controlling the chemical compositions, they exhibit ambipolar charge transport with high mobilities. Some members exhibit long electron and hole diffusion lengths. The fundamental similarities and differences between MeNH3PbI3, MeNH3SnI3 and MeNH3GeI3 perovskites as well as other low dimensional materials will be discussed. Bio: Mercouri Kanatzidis was born in Thessaloniki, Greece in 1957. After obtaining a B. Sc from Aristotle University in Greece, he received his Ph D. in chemistry from the University of Iowa in 1984. He was a post-doctoral research associate at the University of Michigan and Northwestern University from 1985 to 1987 and is currently Charles E. and Emma H. Morrison Professor of Chemistry at Northwestern University. Mercouri moved to Northwestern in the fall of 2006 from Michigan State University where he was a University Distinguished Professor of Chemistry since 1987. His research areas include: Inorganic chemistry, solid state and coordination chemistry of chalcogenide compounds. Design of new materials, exploratory synthesis, thermoelectric materials, nanostructured materials, intermetallics, mesoporous semiconductors, phase-change materials, conducting polymers, intercalation chemistry applications of new materials. He is the recipient of many honors and awards, including: Presidential Young Investigator Award. National Science Foundation, 1989-1994; ACS Inorganic Chemistry Division Award: EXXON Faculty Fellowship in Solid State Chemistry, 1990; Beckman Young Investigator, 1992-1994; Alfred P. Sloan Fellow 1991-1993; Camille and Henry Dreyfus Teacher Scholar 1993-1998; Michigan State University Distinguished Faculty Award 1998; Sigma Xi 2000 Senior Meritorious Faculty Award; University Distinguished Professor MSU 2001; John Simon Guggenheim Foundation Fellow 2002;  Alexander von Humboldt Prize, 2003; Morley Medal, American Chemical Society, Cleveland Section, 2003; Charles E. and Emma H. Morrison Professor, Northwestern University 2006; MRS Fellow 2010; Royal Chemical Society DeGennes Prize 2015; Elected Fellow of the Royal Chemical Society 2015; the ENI Award for the "Renewable Energy Prize" category; the ACS Award in Inorganic Chemistry 2016; and the American Physical Society 2016 James C. McGroddy Prize for New Materials. He has over 950 papers (h-Index=92), 38,000 citations, and 22 patents to his merit.
