76 Dove-Swisher, TaylorBias-Coppected Estimation for singles-event studiesSingle-firm event studies used in securities fraud litigation are prone to statistical bias. Brav and Heaton (2015) describe three potential issues: low statistical power to detect price impacts, confounding effects that cannot be averaged out, and an effect bias in the upward direction. The effect ...2017
77 Burga, Carlos AlbertoBinary superlattices of semiconductor nanocrystals : a path towards possible high-temperature superconductivityThis thesis provides a platform to experimentally test Dr. Daniel Mattis' theoretical work on the possible superconductive behavior of nanostructured intrinsic semiconductors1-2. The theoretical work hinged on the nano-scale architecture of semiconductors. Therefore, using various types of semicondu...Semiconductor nanocrystals; Superconductivity; Superlattices as materials2013-05
78 Rose, StevenBiofuel cells for self powered arsenic detectionResearch in the Minteer group has centered on procedures for immobilizing enzymes and organelles on carbon electrodes for use in sensory and fuel cell applications.

79 Ellingson, DrewBitangent lines to planar quartic curves in algebraic and tropical geometryBitangents are lines which are tangent to a curve at two points. The bitangents of a classical quartic are well understood, and a result originally due to Cayley tells us that there are always precisely 28 bitangents to a generic quartic plane curve. When looking at Tropical Geometry, the situation ...Tropical geometry; Curves, Quartic; Curves, Algebraic; Bitangents2015-04
80 Bekeris, Michael JosephBlock Copolymers and Nanosphere Lithography as a Bottom-up Fabrication Tool for Facilitating Deterministic Lateral DisplacementWith the capability to separate red blood cells and exosomes, deterministic lateral deisplacement (DLD) has established itself as a great utility in biological sparation applications on both the microscale and nonoscale. Current methods of employing DLD on the nonoscale require electron beam lithogr...2020

85 Smith, HaydenBrown v. Board: The racial meridian: Racial segregation in the U.S. public education system before and after Brown v. Board of Education 1954The primary concentration of this project is an analysis of post-Brown v. Board segregation issues within the public education sphere. I focus primarily on the legal history of school desegregation in Texas as it is a Southern state with a long history of racial segregation. Furthermore, Texas effec...Segregation in education - Texas2014-04
86 Olschewski, ErinC is for carrots, community gardens, and co-ops: A thematic analysis of the ways in which Sesame Street tackles nutrition, sustainability, and social justiceIn the realm of entertainment education and media studies, there is a sizable amount of research linking children's nutrition and early educational television shows. However, there is a paucity of work that attempts to connect nutrition with sustainability and/or social justice in the context of chi...Children's television programs -- Social aspects; Nutrition in mass media; Sesame Street (Television program); Social justice in mass media; Sustainability in mass media2014-12
87 Peterson, EzekielCalibration of Low-Cost Ozone Detectors to Measure a Key-Indicator of Summertime air Quality in the Salt Lake ValleyThe air quality measurement boards developed by the University of Utah department of electrical engineering and evaluated by the department of chemical engineering were calibrated for the measurement of ozone. The redox sensors in these boards had a strong inverse response to increases in ozone conc...2018
88 Camara, BarbaraCan More Sensitive Caregiving Buffer the Effects of Maternal Depression on Child Problem Behavior?In 2012, CDC researchers found that 11.5% of women delivering a live birth that year had postpartum depressive symptoms (Ko, Rockhill, Tong, Morrow, & Farr, 2017). Children who have been exposed to maternal depressive symptoms in their first year of life tend to show elevated deficits in a variety o...2019
89 Esplin, JessicaCapital account liberalization & income inequality: 1980-2009In this paper, I examine the relationship between income distribution and the capital market account from 1980 to 2009 across a sample of developed and semi-developed countries. A review of the literature suggests that capital account liberalization raises income inequality. Several factors alleged ...Income distribution - Mathematical models2016-04
90 Wachter, KiraCareer Immersion Prior to Graduation: an Analysis o the Efficacy of Student Marketing AgenciesModern college graduates are faced with a hiring paradox: employers are more willing to hire workers with experience, but college graduates lack professional experience when they graduate. Many educational disciplines encourage experiential work as a solution to this problem. In the marketing indust...2017
91 Jensen, RossCartesian Phenomenal conservatism: a satisfactory response to radical skepticismIn this paper, I defend an epistemological thesis known as phenomenal conservatism. As introduced by Michael Huemer, phenomenal conservatism states: if it seems to S that p [where the variables S and P represent any subject and any proposition, respectively], then, in the absence of defeaters, S th...Phenomenal conservatism; Meditations on First Philosophy
92 Thomas, NikitaCellular 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
93 Millar, ThomasCenter lines, turn lanes and bicycle infrastructure : bikeways in the United States and Salt Lake City's 1700 South corridorContinuous and well-designed bicycle infrastructure plays an essential role in encouraging people to see and use the bicycle as a legitimate form of transportation and not only for recreation.

100 Barbeau, WilliamCharacterization of a New Ribosome Associated Quality Control PathwayProteins are life's double edged sword. Proteins are essential macromolecules of life, and the tasks that some proteins accomplish are quite marvelous. At the same time, if proteins misfold they have the potential to kill the cell that harbors them. It is becoming increasingly clear that proteins ha...Ribosomes - Research2016-12
