Research

As a faculty member in the Departments of Biological & Agricultural Engineering and Food Science & Technology, Dr. Bornhorst’s research will focus on quantitative methods to understand material transport, breakdown, and absorption in the gastrointestinal tract to improve food safety and quality, increase consumer health benefits, and optimize food processing operations. Specifically, she plans to work on the development of dynamic in vitro models, which, coupled with in vivo approaches, can be used to further our understanding of the relationship between food processing, food breakdown during digestion, and nutrient absorption. Additionally, she plans to investigate methods to utilize food process engineering to optimize food functional properties, such as nutrient absorption or allergenicity. To enable fundamental understanding of the digestion process, Dr. Bornhorst’s research will also investigate mixing and particle dynamics during peristaltic flow.

Research

Professor Chen’s research interests focus on significant and difficult problems of computer security and software verification. These two topics relate to each other, in that it is crucial to verify that computer programs do not have bugs that may result in security vulnerabilities. By combining theoretical insights with detailed knowledge of real computer systems, Mr. Chen’s work results in practical, usable security verification systems. Mr. Chen is best known for his tool MOPS, which finds security vulnerabilities in C programs.
