Energy, Entropy, and the Flow of Nature

A fresh and unified exploration of the laws that govern natural change, examining the historical roots and meaning of the concepts of energy and entropy. All natural processes-mechanical, thermal, chemical, electrical, and biological-are viewed as a flow across free energy gradients that interact with one another.

Managing Science

This book introduces the reader to some of the techniques of leadership and management with a pragmatic approach to managing scientific research and scientists, engineers, and technicians that engage with it. The approach is conversational, with anecdotes and practical examples.

Bugs As Drugs

Examining the enormous potential of microbiome manipulation to improve health. Because systems biology approaches and synthetic engineering of microbes are now high-throughput and cost-effective, a much wider range of therapeutic possibilities can be explored and vetted.


The aim of the text is to provide the reader with broader knowledge of biological methods for signal transduction and molecular recognitions systems and how they can be replicated in bio-sensing applications. The reader will learn the basic structures and interactions of biomacromolecules for developing biocompatible and eco-friendly devices.

PEM Electrolysis for Hydrogen Production

Provides a fundamental understanding of the requirements and functionalities of certain components and attributes of the PEM electrolysis technology that are common for both PEM fuel cells' and electrolyzers' hydrogen applications for energy storage. Beneficial to students and professionals, the text serves as a handbook for identifying PEM electrolysis failure modes and diagnosing electrolyzer performance to improve efficiency and durability.
