Additive Manufacturing of Refractory Metals

Description: Keen interest in additive manufacturing (AM) of refractory metals such as tungsten has been motivated by the demand for materials capable of enduring extreme temperatures in aerospace and nuclear applications. The aims of this work were to develop alloy compositions for high-temperature applications in the space propulsion and nuclear fusion sectors, and to establish processing windows for these compositions fabricated using laser powder bed fusion additive manufacturing (LPBF-AM). Tungsten (W)… more

Adult Attachment, Culturally Coherent Coping, Familism, and Psychological Wellbeing among Latine College Students

Description: Extant psychological research has consistently demonstrated that insecure attachment is negatively associated with psychological outcomes and positively correlated with the utilization of maladaptive coping strategies. However, no empirical studies could be located that examined the indirect effect of insecure attachment on wellbeing variables via coping focused on Latine populations. This study explored the direct and indirect effects of insecure attachment on psychological wellbeing indicator… more

The Agency of Water

Description: The Agency of Water is an exhibition that explores the agency of water. I perceive water as a moving, living organism. Evidence of water’s agency can be seen in carved out underground caves, natural levees created by sediment depositions, and wind-driven flow. Through the lens of Post-Humanism and a decentered Anthropocene, I intend to explore the interconnected relationships between water, wind, and soil. Recognizing the agential capacities of these elements as a collaborator in my work decent… more

An Analysis of Legal Liability of Florida Public Educators and School Systems for Negligent Supervision of Students

Description: The doctrine of sovereign immunity in Florida has evolved over time as the common law and statutory environment within the state has changed. Public schools and public-school employees enjoy some level of immunity protection under both common law and statutory law. Nonetheless, Florida law creates a duty to provide a safe environment for students and creates potential liability in certain circumstances when a public school or public school employee fails to do so. In this dissertation, I analyz… more

Analysis of the Impact Hyperglycemia has on Neuronal Functions Using Genetic Approaches in Caenorhabditis elegans

Description: A chronic hyperglycemic state often results in neuropathological complications such as peripheral diabetic neuropathy (PDN). PDN is a debilitating medical condition that impacts over half of the US population with diabetes. In this study, we used the model organism Caenorhabditis elegans to determine that glucose-supplemented diet leads to an increased rate of intrauterine egg hatching (IUEH) and the reduction of dopamine and serotonin is sufficient to suppress the glucose-induced IUEH.

Annual Survivorship and Movement Ecology of Migrant American Kestrels (Falco sparverius) Overwintering in North Texas

Description: American Kestrels (Falco sparverius) are a small falcon with an expansive range across North America. However, kestrels have been reported to be declining since the 1960s, with the primary cause of decline unknown. With previous research focusing on the summer breeding season, researchers have called for additional investigation in understudied wintering and migratory periods. In Chapter 2, I quantified annual survivorship against five covariates of migrant kestrels wintering in north Texas to … more

Atomic Layer Deposition of h-BN(0001) for Passivation on Germanium and Lithium Garnet Substrates and Oxygen Radical Surface Interactions

Description: Boron nitride (BN) protective coatings have found extensive use in electrochemical batteries. Atomic layer deposition (ALD) was employed to deposit a thin BN layer onto solid Li-garnet electrolytes, utilizing a halide-free precursor, tris(dimethylamino)borane, and NH3 at 723 K. This process resulted in a 3 nm BN cap that effectively prevented Li2CO3 formation, a detrimental compound within Li-based electrolytes. The BN-coated Li-garnets exhibited remarkable stability under ambient conditions, c… more

Description: Artist's Statement from the MFA Exhibition: "Enshrouded ecological ubiquities unveil persistent, muted presences existing in neglected spaces as ghostly survivors of anthropogenic impositions upon land. Cobwebs and their remnants of animals hide secret conspiracies of resurrection, conjured speciations, and resilience amid destruction: a space emblematic of Anthropocenic and girlhood survival that further serves as a locus for an intimate intercross yielding a resuscitation and becoming-with an… more

"Bottoming for Dummies"

Description: This book is a guide to bottoming. There are more ways to do it than you might think. Bottoming may be read as passive and intransitive today, but for most of its nearly six hundred years as a verb, "to bottom" has been active and transitive. One goal of this guide is to activate the passive sense of bottoming by connecting it to a wider linguistic history. If the bottom so wishes, their bottoming may be as transitive as bottoming has ever been. A bottom may bottom their top, not merely for the… more

Community and Health in Central Fort Worth: Understanding the Community's Perspectives on Health towards Informing Community-Based Interventions

Description: In 2019, a major academic medical center released a public health research report on life expectancies in Texas organized by zip code. The study revealed that the 76104-zip code, part of the central area of the city of Fort Worth, has the lowest life expectancy in the entire state. Concerned about the life expectancy study statistics, New Mount Rose Baptist Church, affiliated churches, and other community members sought to understand better why the life expectancy in their area was so low.
