Mayville Thesis Defense �Colloidal Properties of Alumina and Zirconia�

Inamori School of Engineering grad student, Alicia Mayville will defend her PhD/Ceramics thesis on Tuesday, July 16 at 9am in Binns-Merrill Hall Room 106.
Title of Thesis: "Colloidal Properties of Alumina and Zirconia"

Copies of Alicia's thesis will be on display in BINNS, room 160 and McMahon in the CACT Office.

The manuscript investigates the potential of ceramic particles with tailored surface chemistry as a passive pH control device to adjust the pH of aqueous environments in specific applications. The initial motivation was to utilize colloidal behavior to adjust the pH of coral reef ecosystems locally. Ocean acidification is a contributing factor to destroying these diverse and essential ecosystems.

Protect Our Campus, Use The "Phish Alert Report" Button

As many of you know, we have an automated phishing prevention system. I am advising all our users to utilize the "Phish Alert Button" in Outlook (image attached).

If you receive a suspected phishing email, clicking on the Phish Alert Report button will remove it from your email and quarantine it for analysis. And even better, through your reporting, ITS systems will automatically look for similar emails on university servers and remove them from other accounts. In this way, you are acting as a "human firewall" to protect yourself and the wider campus community from these social engineering attacks. Report with confidence...If you (accidentally) falsely report a phishing email, the analysis engine will release it back to you.
