• Conducting Social Network and Social Norm Research in Low-Resource Settings: Food Insecurity, Depression, and HIV Testing in Rural Uganda ﻿

(2015-05-18)
This dissertation examines the role of social networks and social norms in health outcomes and behaviors among low-and middle-income countries (LMICs), with a particular focus on Uganda. Paper 1 presents a systematic review ...
• Conducting sparse feature selection on arbitrarily long phrases in text corpora with a focus on interpretability ﻿

(Wiley-Blackwell, 2016)
We propose a general framework for topic-specific summarization of large text corpora, and illustrate how it can be used for analysis in two quite different contexts: an OSHA database of fatality and catastrophe reports ...
• Conductivity of weakly disordered strange metals: From conformal to hyperscaling-violating regimes ﻿

(Elsevier BV, 2015)
We present a semi-analytic method for constructing holographic black holes that interpolate from anti-de Sitter space to hyperscaling-violating geometries. These are holographic duals of conformal field theories in the ...
• Cone Photoreceptor Irregularity on Adaptive Optics Scanning Laser Ophthalmoscopy Correlates With Severity of Diabetic Retinopathy and Macular Edema ﻿

(The Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology, 2016)
Purpose To determine whether cone density, spacing, or regularity in eyes with and without diabetes (DM) as assessed by high-resolution adaptive optics scanning laser ophthalmoscopy (AOSLO) correlates with presence of ...
• Conference Report: Advancing the Science of Developmental Neurotoxicity (DNT): Testing for Better Safety Evaluation. ﻿

(Springer Verlag, 2012)
• Confidence Intervals for Heterogeneity Measures in Meta-analysis ﻿

(Oxford University Press, 2013)
Two methods of quantifying heterogeneity between studies in meta-analysis were studied. One method quantified the proportion of the total variance of the effect estimate due to variation between studies (R-I), and the other ...
• Confidentiality in the digital age ﻿

(BMJ, 2014)
Confidentiality is a pillar of our profession. The patient-physician relationship is built on trust that enables patients to share intimate details. When deciding how to secure and transmit patient information, clinicians ...
• A Configurable Terasample-per-second Imaging System for Optical SETI ﻿

(2013-10-08)
A new instrument for conducting astronomical searches for nanosecond-scale optical pulses has been designed, built, and is now operating at Oak Ridge Observatory in Harvard, MA. The Advanced All-sky Camera, based on the ...
• Configural Cue Performance in Identical Twins Discordant for Posttraumatic Stress Disorder: Theoretical Implications for the Role of Hippocampal Function ﻿

(Elsevier BV, 2007)
Background: A significant subgroup of individuals with posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) exhibits chronic, unremitting symptomatology that has also been associated with smaller hippocampal volume. The hippocampus plays ...
• Confined Organization of Fullerene Units Along High Polymer Chains ﻿

(Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC), 2013)
Conductive fullerene $(C_{60})$ units were designed to be arranged in one dimensional close contact by locally organizing them with covalent bonds in a spatially constrained manner. Combined molecular dynamics and quantum ...
• Confinement transition to density wave order in metallic doped spin liquids ﻿

(American Physical Society (APS), 2016)
Insulating quantum spin liquids can undergo a confinement transition to a valence bond solid via the condensation of topological excitations of the associated gauge theory. We extend the theory of such transitions to ...
• Confinement-Enhanced Electron Transport across a Metal-Semiconductor Interface ﻿

(American Physical Society (APS), 2001)
We present a combined scanning tunneling microscopy and ballistic electron emission microscopy study of electron transport across an epitaxial Pb/Si(111) interface. Experiments with a self-assembled Pb nanoscale wedge ...
• Confinement-induced interlayer molecules: A route to strong interatomic interactions ﻿

(American Physical Society, 2015)
• Confinement-Induced Order of Tethered Alkyl Chains at the Water/Vapor Interface ﻿

(American Physical Society, 2002)
Packing of tethered alkyl chains in Langmuir monolayers of a hairy-rod polypeptide poly[γ-4-(n-hexadecyloxy)benzyl α,L-glutamate] on water has been studied by x-ray scattering measurements at room temperature. The rods lie ...
• Confirmation of emergence of mutations associated with atovaquone-proguanil resistance in unexposed Plasmodium falciparum isolates from Africa ﻿

(BioMed Central, 2006)
Background: In vitro and in vivo resistance of Plasmodium falciparum to atovaquone or atovaquone-proguanil hydrochloride combination has been associated to two point mutations in the parasite cytochrome b (cytb) gene ...
• Confirmation of Genetic Associations at ELMO1 in the GoKinD Collection Supports Its Role as a Susceptibility Gene in Diabetic Nephropathy ﻿

(American Diabetes Association, 2009)
Objective: To examine the association between single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in the engulfment and cell motility 1 (ELMO1) gene, a locus previously shown to be associated with diabetic nephropathy in two ethnically ...
• Confirmation of Wide-field Signatures in Redshifted 21 Cm Power Spectra ﻿

(American Astronomical Society, 2015)
We confirm our recent prediction of the "pitchfork" foreground signature in power spectra of high-redshift 21 cm measurements where the interferometer is sensitive to large-scale structure on all baselines. This is due to ...
• Confirmation via the Continuum-Fitting Method That the Spin of the Black Hole in Cygnus X-1 Is Extreme ﻿

(IOP Publishing, 2014)
In Gou et al., we reported that the black hole primary in the X-ray binary Cygnus X-1 is a near-extreme Kerr black hole with a spin parameter a∗ > 0.95 (3σ). We confirm this result while setting a new and more stringent ...
• Confirmatory Spirometry for Adults Hospitalized with a Diagnosis of Asthma or Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease Exacerbation ﻿

(BioMed Central, 2012)
Background: Objective measurement of airflow obstruction by spirometry is an essential part of the diagnosis of asthma or COPD. During exacerbations, the feasibility and utility of spirometry to confirm the diagnosis of ...
• Confirmatory Testing for Onychomycosis—Reply ﻿

(American Medical Association (AMA), 2016)
In Reply We thank Wang et al and Lipner and Scher for their interest in our study and agree with both groups about other potential consequences of terbinafine use.1 Our analysis of the adverse effects of terbinafine included ...
