  • The Unexpected Role of Se(VI) Species in Epoxidations with Benzeneseleninic Acid and Hydrogen Peroxide 

    Back, Thomas George; Sands, Kai N; Mendoza Rengifo, Emerita; George, Graham N; Pickering, Ingrid J; Gelfand, Benjamin S (Science, University of Calgary, 2019-12-24)
    Benzeneperoxyseleninic acid has been proposed as the key intermediate in the widely used epoxidation of alkenes with benzeneseleninic acid and hydrogen peroxide. However, it reacts sluggishly with cyclooctene and instead ...
  • A Report on Propagative Influence: An Influence measure for directed and undirected networks 

    Zaamout, Khobaib (Science, Computer Science, University of Calgary, 2018-03-15)
    In this report, we present a new influence measure, namely Propagative Influence - PI. PI measure defines influence of a node in terms of its relationships. It suggests that a node's influence is a product of the ...
  • Novel copper-containing membrane monooxygenases (CuMMOs) encoded by alkane-utilizing Betaproteobacteria 

    Rochman, Fauziah F.; Kwon, Miye; Khadka, Roshan; Tamas, Ivica; Lopez-Jauregui, Abraham; Sheremet, Andriy; Smirnova, Angela V.; Malmstrom, Rex; Yoon, Sukhwan; Woyke, Tanja; Dunfield, Peter F.; Verbeke, Tobin J. (Nature Publishing Group, Science, Biological Sciences, University of Calgary,, 2019-07-01)
    Copper-containing membrane monooxygenases (CuMMOs) are encoded by xmoCAB(D) gene clusters and catalyze the oxidation of methane, ammonia, or some short chain alkanes and alkenes. In a metagenome constructed from an oilsands ...
  • Discussing Open Energy Data and Data Visualizations with Canadians 

    He, Helen Ai; Walny, Jagoda; Thoma, Sonja; Willett, Wesley J.; Carpendale, Sheelagh (Science, Computer Science, 2019-11-26)
    Despite an abundance of data and prevalent open data initiatives from democratic governments, there are many unknowns about how to make open data truly accessible, engaging, and empowering to the general public. We present ...
  • Exploring the Experience of Becoming and Unbecoming a Cyborg Using Performing Arts Techniques 

    Hammad, Noor; Somanath, Sowmya; Sharlin, Ehud; Finn, Patrick (Science, University of Calgary, 2019-10-22)
    The project proposes using performing arts techniques to aid people in becoming and unbecoming a cyborg. Cyborgs are human-machine hybrids with organic and mechatronic body parts which can be implanted or worn. The transition ...
  • Securing Smart Homes with OpenFlow 

    Frank, Mitchell; Ghaderi, Majid (Science, Computer Science, University of Calgary, 2019-10-10)
    The Internet of Things (IoT) trend is introducing additional devices to home networks. Home networks face the same threats as every other network. Recently, IoT devices have been compromised by attackers and used as staging ...
  • Logic and Operator Algebras 

    Golubeva, Kimberly (Science, Mathematics & Statistics, 2019-08-31)
    Before research had commenced, the nature and process of research in pure mathematics was as foreign to me as the actual topic of interest. Within the STEM fields, there is a definitive and formulaic notion of what research ...
  • Data Changes Everything: Challenges and Opportunities in Data Visualization Design Handoff 

    Jagoda Walny; Christian Frisson; Mieka West; Doris Kosminsky; Søren Knudsen; Sheelagh Carpendale; Willett, Wesley J. (Science, Computer Science, University of Calgary, 2019-08-01)
    Complex data visualization design projects often entail collaboration between people with different visualization-related skills. For example, many teams include both designers who create new visualization designs and ...
  • User Interface Design Patterns for Wildlife-Related Camera Trap Image Analysis 

    Greenberg, Saul; Godin, Theresa I.; Whittington, Jesse (Science, Computer Science, 2019-07-29)
    This paper describes and explains design patterns for software that supports how analysts can efficiently inspect and classify camera trap images for wildlife-related ecological attributes. Broadly speaking, a design pattern ...
  • Interview with James Terry re: Amnesia 

    Aycock, John (Science, Computer Science, 2019-07)
    This is an interview with James Terry, conducted via email between June 25-30, 2019. He created the King Edward system for Cognetics, the company that developed the game Amnesia, which was eventually released by Electronic ...
