1 The expansion of pinyon-juniper woodland and the appearance of peromyscus truel in the Toiyabe range of central NevadaIn the early twentieth century field biologists from the University of California Museum of Vertebrate Zoology conducted vertebrate faunal surveys throughout the Great Basin region. Over the past several years we have been conducting resurveys of many of the localities visited by MVZ scientists. Our...Piñon mouse -- Nevada -- Toiyabe Range; Piñon mouse -- Habitat -- Nevada -- Toiyabe Range; Piñon mouse -- Climatic factors -- Nevada -- Toiyabe Range2012-05

3 Modeling conductivity as a function of temperature for CZTS and CZTSe thin film solar cell absorber layersThe goat of this project was to develop an accurate model for the temperature dependent conductivity of CU2ZnSnS4 (elTS) and CU2ZnSnSe4 {ClTSe} thin film solar cell absorber layers. Mathematical models of conductivity and resistivity were derived from both parallel and series combinations of tempera...Solar cells; Thin films2013
4 The effects of color on food preferenceColor has an influence on our perception of food and affects the food choices we make. In this study, images of food were used to test the effect of dish color on food preferences. Pairs of various food images were shown to 96 college students.

8 Optimization of hydraylic fracturing of tight gas formations in horizontal wellsThe discoveries of significant resources of oil and gas in the Barnett, Bakken, Marcellus, and other shale formations have presented an opportunity for national petroleum independence and possible export in the relatively near future. These formations are considered to be "unconventional" resources ...Hydraulic fracturing2013-04
9 Tropical analog to the log canonical thresholdIn algebraic geometry, the log canonical threshold is a property of singularities of planar curves. While singularities have multiplicities, the log canonical threshold can be a more telling invariant. It helps to classify curves beyond what the multiplicity indicates by examining how quickly the in...Geometry, Algebraic2013-04
10 The preparedness of college and university counseling centers in meeting the needs of student veteransThe current study assesses counseling centers on college and university campuses in their dealings with student veteran clients in a national sample (N=33) of college center directors.

11 Journaling as a central focus in the secondary classroomFor my thesis project, I have studied the role of journaling into a secondary language arts classroom. Everyone can learn about themselves through writing, and I have explored this idea further. We can learn a lot when we simply put our pens to paper and write what we already have within our minds,...Diaries - Authorship - Study and teaching (Secondary); Creative writing (Secondary education)2013-04
12 Increased gluti expression in mouse cardiomyocytes preserves mitochondrial function but is insufficient to attenuate pressure overload-induced contractile dysfunctionLifelong over-expression of GLUT1 transporter in the heart has been shown to preserve contractile function after aortic constriction. However it is unclear whether this protective effect is due to GLUT1 overexpression itself or due to reprogramming of heart metabolism as a result of long-term increa...Bioengineering2013-04
13 Accurate communication : explaining a medical technology to a mass audienceThe purpose of this thesis project is to describe the process I have taken, and that others could follow, to use the written communication tecliniques that I have learned during my undergraduate career to accurately inform a non-medically trained mass audience of a medical technology. Clear communic...Medical technology; Communication and technology2013-05
14 Cellular ultrastructure of C. elegans nervous systemDetermining the ultrastructural organization of the nervous system is a key step in understanding how complex behavior is generated. For a nervous system to function, it must be wired accurately. A complete wiring diagram, referred to as a connectome, can be created by tracing neuronal profiles thro...Caenorhabditis elegans - Nervous system2013-05
15 Heroes of rock: A design post mortem exploring the video game design process as it relates to player satisfactionThe player experience is the heart of a video game and it is the core concept behind what makes a video game engaging and fun. For my senior capstone project I designed, produced, and managed a video game titled Heroes of Rock. I lead an 11 person team over the duration of my senior year to create a...Video games production; Psychological theory2013-05
16 Italy: My catalystDuring the summer of 2012, I spent five weeks in Italy studying opera. That experience changed my life, but it also started me on a path of discovery and growth. When I returned I was filled with a desire to continue the trajectory of learning that had been set during those weeks. Through the Honors...Singing - Instruction and study - Italy; Americans - Italy2013-05
17 Healthcare culture and the innovation climate of the Salt Lake ValleyHealthcare innovation has become an important issue over the past ten years in the health industry.
