Flexible electronics interface well with the human body, enabling wearable device implementations that were previously limited by the rigid form factors of conventional electronics. This work explores applying printed and flexible organic light emitting diodes (OLEDs) in biomedicine. A proof-of-concept solution-processed organic optoelectronic pulse oximeter is demonstrated, as well as a new OLED... More >

A distinguishing feature of the labor market is social interaction among co-workers---providing the ingredients for social norms to develop and constrain behavior. We use a field experiment to test whether social norms against accepting wage cuts distort workers' labor supply during periods of unemployment. We partner with 183 existing employers, who offer jobs to 502 randomly-selected laborers... More >

Special Seminar: 5-chromatic unit-distance graphs in the plane: initial discovery and subsequent progress
Seminar | May 2 | 4:10-5 p.m. | 3 Evans Hall
Aubrey de Grey, SENS Research Foundation
Earlier this year I made the first improvement since 1950 to the bounds of the Hadwiger-Nelson problem, which is to determine the chromatic number of the plane (CNP); the lower bound was previously 4, since there are 4-chromatic unit-distance (UD) graphs in the plane. The improvement to CNP ≥ 5 was achieved by identifying, though not actually defining precisely, a numerical function of UD... More >

Quantitative insights into gene network evolution and aging in the context of a canonical network
Regulation of gene expression in the yeast galactose utilization network has served as a paradigm for eukaryotic transcriptional control for 60 years now. Using the GAL network as an experimental model, we characterized cross-species evolution of this network and how cellular aging... More >
