  2. Reduced-order Homogenization of Heterogeneous Material Systems: from Viscoelasticity to Nonlinear Elasto-plastic Softening Material

    D217qp64x?file=thumbnail
    Description: The discovery of efficient and accurate descriptions for the macroscopic constitutive behavior of heterogeneous materials with complex microstructure remains an outstanding challenge in mechanics. On the one hand, great accuracy can be achieved by modeling small domains of a material including all the details in the microstructure, however, at the...

  3. Private Targets, Public Outcomes: An Examination of Individual-Level Participation in Private Politics and Its Interaction with Public Politics

    Gm80hv46x?file=thumbnail
    Description: Existing political science literature tells us that the common factors of political participation include factors such as civic skills, available free time, and income. However, few have expanded their studies to include to private politics, and to see what factors influence private political participation. Private political participation refers to “the...

  4. How to Cope with Ambivalence: Sub-Dimensioning vs. Integration

    Bk128b167?file=thumbnail
    Description: This dissertation investigates two different decision-making strategies, which I label “sub-dimensioning” versus “integration” that individuals employ to cope with feelings of ambivalence. “Sub-dimensioning” is defined as a strategy that involves lower-level construals where an ambivalent decision-maker represents and evaluates an attitude object in terms of its dimensions of evaluation, whereas...

  6. Transport Processes at the Sediment-Water Interface

    Work
    Description: Rivers and streams are the corridors of material transport from land to sea. Solutes and particles experience a range of environments as they traverse the river network, many of which are highly reactive, and reaction rates are localized to specific regions. The interfacial region between the river and its underlying...
