Dr. Lynn Schreyer Seminar: Compartment Models with Memory

The beauty and simplicity of compartment modeling makes it a useful approach for simulating dynamics in an amazingly wide range of applications, including pharmacokinetics (where e.g. a liver is considered a compartment), global carbon cycling (different depths of soils are considered compartments), and epidemiology and population dynamics. These contexts, however, often involve compartment-to-compartment flows that are physically incongruent with the conventional assumption of complete mixing that results in exponential residence times in linear models.

Mentoring and the Dissertation Process

Among the most consequential documents that writers produce in graduate school is the dissertation. Strong mentoring at specific critical junctures in the dissertation process can strengthen both the document itself and graduate students’ abilities to later support their own graduate students. Unfortunately, most faculty receive little to no training about the writing instruction central to the dissertation process, from invention to final deposit. Instead, they rely upon their own experiences producing a doctoral thesis, which might have been problematic and trauma producing or wonderful yet still mystifying. This workshop incorporates current research on graduate student writing and builds on insights about graduate student struggles that the Writing Lab gains through working with dissertation writers.

Making the Most of Your Presentation

Strong oral presentation skills are a key to success for engineers, scientists, and other professionals, yet many speakers are at a loss to tackle the task. Systematic as they otherwise can be in their work, they go at it intuitively, sometimes haphazardly, with much good will but seldom good results. Based on Dr. Doumont’s book “Trees, maps, and theorems” discussing effective communication strategies for rational minds, this lecture proposes a systematic way to prepare and deliver presentations. Among other topics, it covers structure, slides, and delivery, as well as stage fright.
