Expertise: Our group focuses on engineering biology to produce organic molecules of interest such as biofuels, commodity and specialty chemicals and protein pharmaceuticals.  Specifically, our lab alters cells and "hijacks" the basic metabolism to convert cellular systems into industrially-relevant biochemical factories.  We utilize a variety of host systems including microbial (eg. Eschericia coli), fungal (eg. the yeasts Saccharomyces cerevisiae and Yarrowia lipolytica), and mammalian cells (eg. Chinese Hamster Ovary (CHO) cells and human HEK293).  To accomplish these tasks, traditional pathway engineering approaches are merged with novel synthetic biology tools, protein engineering strategies, systems biology paradigms and applied genetic engineering capabilities.  Our research group focuses on the integration and implementation of these tools and knowledge for the design, production, and elicitation of phenotypes relevant to biotechnological processes and medical interest.  In addition, we are heavily invested in developing novel synthetic biology approaches aimed at increasing our capacity to engineer cells.

Flavio S Azevedo

Assistant Professor, Department of Curriculum and Instruction, College of Education
flavio@austin.utexas.edu

Expertise: My research focuses primarily on theorizing the nature of short- and long-term interests in STEM disciplines, and designing learning environments that are truly engaging to students. This has led me to investigate learning and interest-based participation in settings as diverse as classrooms, after-school programs, and hobby practices (model rocketry and amateurs astronomy). Intersecting with this central research focus, my other research interests include the use and creation of technical representations and the way these mediate knowing and learning; the discourse and practices of engaged participation in STEM classrooms; and social justice issues in STEM education. This work has appeared in publications such as the Journal of the Learning Sciences, Cognition and Instruction, and the Journal of Mathematical Behavior.

Expertise: Dr. Bearman's current research interests center on three main agenda: 1) Using consumer feedback and practice-based evidence to adapt existing empirically supported interventions for better fit in usual care contexts where children and families receive services 2) Identifying training and supervision processes that foster the adoption, implementation, and sustainability of empirically supported interventions for youth and 3) The role of treatment integrity (adherence, competence, and differentiation) in the effectiveness of youth interventions. Dr. Bearman has specific expertise in empirically supported interventions for youth with depression, anxiety, conduct disorders and traumatic stress; dissemination and implementation science; the development of observational behavioral coding systems to assess therapy and supervision process; and mixed-methods approaches to research, including experimental and quasi-experimental design, qualitative and community participatory research, and longitudinal risk factor modeling.

Expertise: My research examines the management of systems for athlete and coach development. Specifically, I investigate the potential supplemental impact that non-organized sport settings, such as pick-up sports and video games, may have on these development systems. Drawing from an interdisciplinary blend of quantitative, qualitative, and historical methodologies, my research focuses on leveraging this understanding of settings to influence the design and implementation of sport programs and policies that promote both elite performance and mass participation throughout the lifespan. Further, I also consider the development of creativity and innovation in and through sport at both the individual and organizational levels.

Expertise: Dr. Neff's research links self-compassion to mental health. She has successfully differentiated the construct of self-compassion from self-esteem. This line of research is highly cross-disciplinary, drawing from fields of social and personality psychology, developmental psychology, and clinical psychology. Recently, Dr. Neff developed an eight-week program designed to teach self-compassion skills called "Mindful Self-Compassion" (MSC). The effectiveness of the program has been shown using a randomized controlled trial, and is now being taught all over the world. Dr. Neff is currently examining the effectiveness of the Mindful Self-Compassion program, including brief versions of the program to help address burnout among teachers and health care workers. Additionally, Dr. Neff is investigating the link between self-compassion and compassion for others.

+1 512 471 5392

Expertise: Interests include the broad areas of polymer science and engineering and chemical engineering. Current research involves various aspects of polymeric materials including polymer blends; membranes for separations, drug delivery, packaging, etc.; and polymer processing.  The blend research deals with the thermodynamics of polymer-polymer interactions (miscibility, phase diagrams, interfaces), reactive compatibilization of multiphase mixtures, rubber toughening, the control of phase morphology during processing by both chemical and physical means, and polymeric nanocomposites.  The research on diffusion in polymers involves investigation of structure-property relationships to design better membranes for separation processes and improved barrier materials plus an interest in theories and models for describing sorption and permeation of small molecule penetrants in polymers including the rubbery, glassy, semi-crystalline, and liquid crystalline states of these materials.  The research on nanocomposites involves devising chemical and processing strategies for exfoliating layered silicates in polymer matrices for improvement of performance using nanoscale reinforcement.  Synthesis, characterization, and performance of polymers are an integral part of the research in all these areas.
