Throughout the world, two major societal issues requiring profound attention are (i) the development of clean and efficient energy storing devices and (ii) access to appropriate healthcare. The synergistic relationship between the need for accessible diagnostics and clean energy stem from the recent recognition and importance of ‘Global Health’. Electrochemistry, which plays an important role in a variety of scientific pursuits, is heavily relied upon in the fields of diagnostics and sustainable energy and is thus well-suited to make significant contributions to Global Health.

Cold Climate Heat Pumps: A Necessary Tool for Reducing Carbon Emissions
Lecture
WSU Pullman - Elson S. Floyd Cultural Center

Heat pump technology is changing the way single-family residences are being heated and cooled. Heating systems that are reliant on gas or electric resistance heating can be changed to a heat pump and meaningfully reduce carbon emissions. While most heat pumps can be used in residential retrofits and new residential construction in Washington State climate zones, the cold weather limitations of heat pumps may need to be considered in some building locations to ensure the unit installed can meet optimal heating temperatures during cold winter months. In this lecture, key takeaways from a cold climate heat pump study performed by RDH Building Science Inc. for Fortis BC Inc. will be discussed.

Workshop / Seminar

The DeYonker laboratory uses quantum chemistry to study two very different types of problems. First, we are developing software to automate, simplify, standardize, and validate the construction of atomic-level enzyme models. Enzyme simulations are notoriously challenging as their large size prevents modeling the whole enzyme with highly accurate but computationally expensive quantum mechanical (QM) methods. Determining which biological sub-units necessarily should be included in the QM-model remains ambiguous, and current practices for model construction typically suffer from human bias and unclear methodology.
