  • Liu, Daniel S. (Daniel Shao-Chen) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    Genetically encodable fluorescence reporters such as the green fluorescent protein (GFP) are useful for studying protein expression, localization, and dynamics in a variety of biological systems. GFP and its related variants, ...
  • Boyd, William Robert Dawson, III (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    Over the past 20 years, parallel computing has enabled computers to grow ever larger and more powerful while scientific applications have advanced in sophistication and resolution. This trend is being challenged, however, ...
  • Lee, Juney, M. Arch. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    Skyscraper is a by-product of 19th century American industrialism. spirit, and disaster. The Great Chicago Fire of 1871 was a catastrophe that necessitated dense and rapid reconstruction, both of which the high-rise provided. ...
  • Sosa-Alvarado, Brian A. (Brian Alexander) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    The nucleus is the hallmark of the eukaryotic cell. It contains most of the genetic material and it separates the processes of replication and transcription from that of translation. Communication between the nucleus and ...
  • Alibay, Farah (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    Planetary exploration missions are becoming increasingly complex and expensive due to ever more ambitious scientific and technical goals. On the other hand, budgets in planetary science have suffered from dramatic cuts ...
  • Zhang, Liang, Ph. D. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    This thesis studies radiation-induced mixing at interfaces between low solubility metals using molecular dynamics (MD) computer simulations. It provides original contributions on the fundamental mechanisms of radiation-induced ...
  • Covarrubias, Daniela (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    Textiles have always played a critical role in the spaces we inhabit. Although textiles are often in opposition to what we consider to be architecture. Architecture is permanent, grounded, fixed; textiles are temporary, ...
  • Lee, Chia Chieh (Chia Chieh Jessica) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    There is a total of more than 9700 convenient stores in Taiwan. In Taipei, the capital of the country, there is 1 convenient store in every 400 meters, which is equivalent to one convenient store in every 5 minutes. This ...
  • Lee, Jaeyual (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    Protestants today seem to approach public worship with one or the other of two quite different attitudes. Many Protestants understand worship as primarily a matter of feelings; others see worship as basically work done in ...
  • Rahimi, Kamyar (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    The Green Line or hydro corridors of Toronto are sprawling lengths of continuous, mostly vacant land used for the primary purpose of transmitting electricity. They are unusual terrain, physically sparse but culturally ...
  • Blair, Michael Ryan (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    The chemistries of fluorine, F₂, and xenon difluoride, XeF₂, with clean Si are basically the same, while their chemistries diverge dramatically past I ML F coverage. With a clean Si surface, F₂ and XeF₂ react utilizing an ...
  • Cheung, Stephanie, S.M. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    One of the most remarkable ideas in modem biology is that organization of multicellular life is orchestrated by a relatively small repertoire of signaling molecules, which mediate communication between cells. Breakdown of ...
  • Nikolaidis, Stefanos Z (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    This thesis is focused on designing mechanisms for programming robots and training people to perform human-robot collaborative tasks, drawing upon insights from practices widely used in human teams. First, we design and ...
  • Hartwig, Zachary Seth (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    Plasma-material interactions (PMI) in magnetic fusion devices such as fuel retention, material erosion and redeposition, and material mixing present significant scientific and engineering challenges, particularly for the ...
  • De Soria-Santacruz Pich, Maria (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    The inner Van Allen radiation belt traps highly energetic protons sourced from solar storms, cosmic rays and other processes. These particles can rapidly damage the space systems orbiting the inner region, limiting access ...
  • Ferguson, Todd R. (Todd Richard) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    The focus of this thesis work is the application of non-equilibrium thermodynamics in lithium-ion battery modeling. As the demand for higher power and longer lasting batteries increases, the search for materials suitable ...
  • WorkHotel 
    Dixon, Alexander M. (Alexander Mackenzie) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    The office has for decades been touted as a model of flexibility, the super-generic shell facilitating the ultra-customized fit out. However, as technology fuels a de-territorialization of the workplace and employees are ...
  • Feng, Feifei, M. Arch. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    The thesis examines the social-political issues resulting from the immense expansion of mundane housing developments in China under a totalitarian state. Initially influenced by the Soviet Union in the 1950s, the four to ...
  • Helman, Elena (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    Cancer is a complex disease of the genome exhibiting myriad somatic mutations, from single nucleotide changes to various chromosomal rearrangements. The technological advances of next-generation sequencing enable high-throughput ...
  • Barnard, Harold Salvadore (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    Plasma-material interactions (PMI) in magnetic fusion devices pose significant scientific and engineering challenges for the development of steady-state fusion power reactors. Understanding PMI is crucial for the develpment ...
