This paper employs a firm-level collective bargaining dataset to investigate the effect of labor, as an important stakeholder of a firm, on debt contracting. Prior research suggests that, to improve bargaining position, unionized firms have incentives to maintain information asymmetry with organized labor. While withholding public disclosures improves firms’ bargainin....

It is well known that state and local economic development officials compete across jurisdictions in terms of offering financial incentives to locate in their area. After decades of research, there is no clear consensus on the effects of economic development incentives. The effects of this controversial economic development policy are explored in three essays. The resea....

Social scientists have argued that disgust has a unique relationship with moral judgment and, in particular, with judgments involving physical and moral purity. That is, disgust has been said to highlight moral considerations surrounding purity and, thereby, to make moral judgments more extreme. Here, a more general role for disgust is introduced, based on appraisal the....

Methane and carbon monoxide are two hazardous gases which require continuous monitoring by gas sensors in underground coal mines for explosion prevention and toxicity, respectively. This work explored implementing miniaturized gas sensors in this area to simultaneously detect both gases for benefits of increased portability and reduced power consumption of the chemiresi....

Sociological literature has not paid the same attention to the educational attainment of lesbian, gay, and bisexual (LGB) persons, despite their status as a socially marginalized group. Through the application of sociological methods and theories, my dissertation argues that sexual identity’s effect on educational attainment is conditional. That is, determining whethe....

Protein metabolism comprises the biochemical processes that regulate the synthesis of proteins, their post-translational modification and degradation. In cancer cells, pathways targeting protein metabolism are often deregulated to accumulate signals that promote survival. These changes are manifested in malignant cells by way of upregulation of protein synthesis, suppre....

Science classroom discourse contributes in important ways to the development of students’ scientific understanding and reasoning skills. However, many science teachers are not ready for scientific discourse, given that much of their time is spent delivering scientific knowledge. A classroom dialogue should be differentiated from an argumentation or explanation because....

In this dissertation, we develop methodologies to solve difficult classes of discrete optimization problems under uncertainty by using techniques from integer programming. First, we consider a class of two-stage stochastic integer programs with binary variables in the first stage, general integer variables in the second stage and random data with finitely many outcomes.....

A detailed investigation of the Galactic bulge stellar population, based predominantly on analysis of OGLE-III photometry, is reported. Significant progress is realized in the areas of variable stars, morphological structure, the red giant branch bump (RGBB), the age-helium-metallicity relationship, and the reddening toward the bulge. It is demonstrated that there is v....

Alzheimer’s disease is characterized pathologically by two intracellular lesions, granulovacuolar degeneration and neurofibrillary tangles. Because Alzheimer’s disease is primarily sporadic, the traditional starting point for studying disease is pathology. It is still debated whether these hallmark lesions are markers or mediators of disease progression; however, th....
