SCADA System Security

    Author Name(s) Jeyner Arana Faculty Advisor(s) Reza Abdolee Abstract Industrial control systems have shown to lack effective security measures that have increased its vulnerability to frequent cyber-attacks. Furthermore, implementing a security protocol for these systems can cause the system to slow down and lead to wasteful high expenses. A solution for this is to establish a SCADA system that can offer a thorough security measure while at the same time… Read More »SCADA System Security

In a rush to meet growing regulation and market changes, ad-tech companies… Read More »Digital Advertising and Privacy Concerns: The stakeholder’s perspective

    Mechanical Automation of Laser Laboratories by Undergraduates

    Author Name(s) Emiko Ito Faculty Advisor(s) Dr. Scott Feister Abstract Undergraduate work has been mainly focused on general courses and those for the major, however, as many professionals in the industry can vouch for, engineers need research and experience as early as they can get it. By collaborating with graduate level high density energy laboratory technicians, undergraduate engineering students can greatly benefit from taking a problem at the most basic… Read More »Mechanical Automation of Laser Laboratories by Undergraduates

    The Effects of Social Support and Types of Abuse on Substance Abuse

      Author Name(s) Maritza Santos Faculty Advisor(s) HyeSun Lee Abstract Social support services are currently emerging and embedded into our society in order to benefit people from abusive and toxic home environments. However, there is not much information on whether people who have used social support services are actually benefitting from these social services and whether their potential substance abuse can be related to the effectiveness of these services. The data… Read More »The Effects of Social Support and Types of Abuse on Substance Abuse

      Dissecting the mechanisms underlying attraction and repulsion to cat sensed cues: Worms and cats aren’t much different

      Author Name(s) Brianna Ramos Faculty Advisor(s) Gareth Harris Abstract Organisms across the phyla are capable of sensing an array of sensory cues to control or shape complex behavioral responses needed to survive in an environment consisting of a multitude of attractive and repulsive cues. Mammalian systems extensively use olfactory (odor) and gustatory (taste) behavior to fine tune these sensory-dependent decision-making behaviors. Despite understanding the importance of behavioral responses to odor… Read More »Dissecting the mechanisms underlying attraction and repulsion to cat sensed cues: Worms and cats aren’t much different

      A comparison of beer volatiles extraction using HS-SPME and DLLME for analysis by GC-MS

      Author Name(s) Carmen Cortez Ortega Faculty Advisor(s) Blake Gillespie Abstract Understanding yeast’s contribution to flavor development in beer brewing often requires rapid, reproducible extraction of volatiles from aqueous solution for mass spectral analysis. HS-SPME is a time consuming process in which reproducibility is a challenge. A more efficient process is dispersive liquid-liquid microextraction (DLLME). In comparison to HS-SPME, DLLME allows many samples to be rapidly and simultaneously extracted. Using volatiles… Read More »A comparison of beer volatiles extraction using HS-SPME and DLLME for analysis by GC-MS

      The Boxing Culture in Oxnard California; and Why Boxers Fight at all?

        Author Name(s) Antonio Sepulveda Faculty Advisor(s) Dr. Jaime Matera Abstract The History of the La Colonia Boxing gym in Oxnard California and subsequently the boxing subculture that developed from it is one of an immigrant community coming together. In order to keep their youth from delinquent behavior, the help of dedicated citizens who spent their free time teaching boxing skills but most importantly mentoring the Oxnard youth participating in the… Read More »The Boxing Culture in Oxnard California; and Why Boxers Fight at all?

        The role of psychological intervention in recovery from traumatic spinal cord injury

          Author Name(s) Macon McIntyre Faculty Advisor(s) Dr. Barbara Thayer Abstract According the National Institute of Mental Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, suicide has been steadily increasing as a cause of death since the turn of the century (HHS, 2021). Specifically, individuals with traumatic spinal cord injuries are at an increased risk of suicide compared to the general population. The current evidence-based best practice is cognitive behavioral… Read More »The role of psychological intervention in recovery from traumatic spinal cord injury

          Comparing the Effectiveness of Collaboration vs. Individual work in Probability

            Author Name(s) Panchami Divakar Phadke Faculty Advisor(s) Dr. Ivona Grzegorczyk Abstract Collaboration gives a lot of room for discussions and exchange of ideas. Our project concentrates on comparing student preferences and performance on solving advanced probability problems either individually or in small groups. Data analysis shows attitudes and assessment of student work in these two scenarios. Presentation Poster View Hi-Res
