• #### [2014-07-12]Discovery of the Bc(2S) Meson and Development of Pixel Detectors for Future Particle Collider Experiments ﻿

This work involves an analysis of data recorded at the Large Hadron Collider combined with a program to develop detectors for future collider experiments. Using the full 4.9 fb$^{-1}$ of 7 TeV data collected in 2011 and ...
• #### [2014-09-15]Disentangling Historical Biogeography and Anthropogenic Introductions: A Case Study of Red Shiner (Cyprinella lutrensis) ﻿

Structured abstract: Aim: Determine evolutionary events that have shaped observed patterns of diversity in Red Shiner within the Rio Grande Basin, New Mexico. Location: Pecos, Delaware, Rio Grande and Canadian Rivers, ...
• #### [2010-06-28]Dispersal, facilitation, and burrow architecture in banner-tailed kangaroo rats ﻿

The largest and most dominant kangaroo rat species in the Chihuahuan Desert is the banner-tailed kangaroo rat (Dipodomys spectabilis). This keystone species constructs mounds containing a complex burrow system around which ...
• #### [2010-06-25]Dispersion, controlled dispersion, and three applications ﻿

Causality dictates that all physical media must be dispersive. (We will call a medium dispersive if its refractive index varies with frequency.) Ordinarily, strong dispersion is accompanied either by strong absorption ...
• #### [2013-07-11]DISPLAY OF PEPTIDES AND SINGLE-CHAIN ANTIBODIES ON BACTERIOPHAGE MS2 VIRUS-LIKE PARTICLES ﻿

Phage display is a powerful technology for selection of novel binding functions from large populations of peptide or antibody fragments. From a sufficiently complex library, phage bearing peptides or antibodies with ...
• #### [2013-07-11]Disposable Boys: Emotional Location as Applied to the Experience of a Contemporary Theatrical Audience ﻿

This essay is informed by my evolution as a dramatic writer. Along with developing a definition and understanding of the term “emotional location”, this essay will explore the growth of my work, and how it relates or ...
• #### [2013-09-03]Disruption of Ritual: Doctor/Patient Interactions in the Era of Internet ﻿

The historical establishment of medicine as a profession laid the foundation on which it claims dominance and authority over medical decision-making. Through scientific discoveries and a state-recognized monopoly over ...
• #### [2009-08-27]Dissecting disgust : an investigation of the validity of the Three Domain Disgust Scale ﻿

Research on the emotion disgust, and particularly individual differences in disgust sensitivity, has exploded in the past 15 years. However, most of this research has been based on outdated theory and poorly designed ...
• #### [2013-01-30]Distributed force model for arbitrarily shaped IMPC actuators ﻿

A model that describes the relationship of an arbitrarily shaped artificial muscle to the force it produces does not currently exist for actuators made of ionic polymer-metal composites (IPMC), a type of electroactive smart ...
• #### [2009-07-08]Distributed Internet security and measurement ﻿

The Internet has developed into an important economic, military, academic, and social resource. It is a complex network, comprised of tens of thousands of independently operated networks, called Autonomous Systems (ASes). ...
• #### [2009-08-27]Distributed load balancing over directed network topologies ﻿

Due to the increasing demand for high performance computing and the increasing availability of high speed networks, it has become possible to interconnect various geographically distributed computational elements (nodes) ...
• #### [2012-08-28]Distributed multi-domain network survivability ﻿

Wireline backbone networks have evolved to support many different end-user bandwidth services, including private leased lines, packet voice, high-definition packet video, virtual private networks (VPN), etc. From a functional ...
• #### [2010-02-09]Distributed, adaptive deployment for nonholonomic mobile sensor networks : theory and experiments ﻿

In this work we show the Lyapunov stability and convergence of an adaptive and decentralized coverage control for a team of mobile sensors. This new approach assumes nonholonomic sensors rather than the usual holonomic ...
• #### [2011-07-02]Divergence in the ecology of two species of Gambusia in secondary contact ﻿

Gambusia nobilis, a federally endangered species, and G. affinis (Poeciliidae) are small, livebearing fishes found in the southwestern U.S. The invasive G. affinis has been introduced globally to control mosquito populations. ...
• #### [2011-02-08]Divergence of thioesterase function : human BFIT2, Escherichia coli EntH, and YDII ﻿

My doctoral research primarily focuses on two hotdog-fold thioesterases, EntH (also known as YbdB) from E. coli, and BFIT2 from Homo sapiens. The EntH (YbdB) gene is included in a large gene cluster that encodes the enzymes ...
• #### [2013-09-05]DIVERSE COLLEGE WRITERS AND THE CONVERSATION ON ERROR AND STANDARDIZATION ACROSS THE CURRICULUM ﻿

Standardization and the treatment of error is a central concern in the increasingly diverse college composition classroom. Writing teachers who wish to prepare students for success in the disciplines, but do not wish to ...
• #### [2014-09-12]DIVERSIFICATION AND ADAPTATION IN THE ANDES: INSIGHTS FROM PHYLOGEOGRAPHY, MALARIA, AND HEMOGLOBIN OF THE HOUSE WREN (TROGLODYTES AEDON) ﻿

The tropical Andes of South America represent a highly complex landscape characterized by physical barriers to dispersal and stark ecological gradients. The study of intraspecific genetic diversity in widespread Andean ...
• #### [2012-08-27]Diversification in Andean tit-tyrants (Aves, Tyrannidae) ﻿

In my thesis I investigate evolution and diversification of montane birds that inhabit dramatic environmental and latitudinal gradients, specifically within the genus Anairetes (Aves, Tyrannidae). I use phylogenetic, ...
• #### [2015-06-26]Divine Poetics: Representation of Genre in Ovid's Metamorphoses 6.70-128 ﻿

In my thesis, I explore the generic allusion of two ekphrases in the textile competition between Minerva and Arachne. While various scholars have approached the story of Arachne based on Ovid’s critique of the Augustan ...
