What do our students say?

 

I have a passion for solving problems with cancer, specifically Endometrial Cancer. There is a big disparity in the survivor-ship of women of color with this cancer in particular. I have already secured a post-doctorate position to further my research. The Applied Science and Technology Ph.D. has given me the knowledge, confidence and credentials to pursue ground-breaking solutions.

Sherette Godfrey - AST Ph.D. Student

 

I have always loved chemistry. The Applied Science and Technology Program gives me an opportunity to pursue real-world applications and solve problems using chemistry.  I am interested in solving major world problems using my knowledge of chemistry, research and theory plus empirical methodologies. This is what we are learning with an outstanding faculty and excellent labs and facilities.

John Bentley, Dr. Salil Desai & Dr. Bisnu Bastakoti of N.C.A&T CoST are conducting research on Porous Tungsten Oxide: Recent Advances in Design, Synthesis, and Applications.

To find out more on N.C.A&T CoST please click here bit.ly/3e7Scan

Tungsten oxide (WO3) has received ever more attention and has been highly researched over the last decade due to its being a low-cost transition metal semiconductor with tunable, yet widely stable, band gaps. This minireview briefly highlights the challenges in the design and synthesis of porous WO3 including methods, precursors, solvent effects, crystal phases, and surface activities of the porous WO3 base material. These topics are explored while also drawing a connection of how the morphology and crystal phase affect the bandgap. The shifts in bandgap not only impact the optical properties of tungsten but also allow tuning to operate on different energy levels, which makes WO3 highly desirable in many applications such as supercapacitors, batteries, solar cells, catalysts, sensors, smart windows, and bioapplications.

A31C-05 - The Effects of Trash, Residential Biofuel, and Open Biomass Burning Emissions on Local and Transported PM and its Attributed Mortality in Africa

Find out More on N.C. A&T CoST click here bit.ly/3e7Scan

Long term exposure to ambient fine particulate matter (PM) is the second leading risk factor of attributed premature deaths in Sub-Saharan Africa. We used the GEOS-Chem global chemical transport model to quantify the effects of three solid-fuel combustion sources on Africa: (1) trash, (2) residential biofuel use, and (3) open biomass burning (BB). To investigate the roles of local and transport emissions on ambient PM levels across the continent, we designated five African regions (Northern, Southern, West, Central, and East Africa), following the Global Burden of Disease’s regional classification system. We estimated the effects of emissions on both local and continental ambient air quality as well as the mortalities attributable to outdoor PM from these three uncontrolled combustion sources. We ran sensitivity simulations where we excluded each of the three uncontrolled combustion sources in each of the five African regions. Overall, we estimated that emissions from solid-fuel combustion within Africa increased global ambient PM by 2%, leading to 115,000 (95% confidence interval: 84,000 - 142,000) premature mortalities yr globally and 84,000 premature mortalities yr in Africa. Of the three sources, open BB contributes to substantially more ambient PM-related premature mortalities per year (63%) than residential biofuel use (29%) and trash burning (8%). When comparing the three sources across the five regions, open BB in Central Africa leads to the largest number of regional PM-attributed mortalities, while trash burning in North Africa and residential solid-fuel burning in West Africa contribute the most regional mortalities. Overall, Africa has a unique ambient air pollution profile because natural sources such as windblown dust and wildfires contribute strongly to PM levels and PM-related mortality. Air pollution policies may need to focus on taking preventative measures to avoid exposure (e.g., community clean air space, use of N95 masks, local air quality messaging) as much as focusing on emissions control policies from power, transport, and industry.
