Courses at Princeton
CBE 505 Advanced Heat and Mass Transfer (S13, S14)
A survey of modeling and solutions methods for processes involving heat and mass transfer. Topics include convective and diffusive transport, conservation equations, scaling principles and approximation techniques, forced convection, multi-component energy and mass transfer as well as buoyancy and turbulent driven transport.
CBE 433/533 Mechanics and Dynamics of Soft Living Matter (S11, F12, F14)
This course introduces the concepts of soft condensed matter and their application towards understanding the mechanical properties, dynamic behavior, and self-assembly of biological materials, including intracellular structures, cells, and developing embryos. We take an engineering approach that emphasizes the application of fundamental physical concepts to a diverse set of problems taken from the literature, including mechanical properties of biopolymers and the cytoskeleton, directed and random molecular motion within cells, aggregation and collective movement of cells, and phase transitions and critical behavior in the self-assembly of lipid membranes and intracellular structures.
