Hamilton Students Wrap Up Service Trip to Uganda
Following is the most recent e-mail received from Meghan Moulton '07, one of eight Hamilton students who travelled to Jinja, Uganda, for a month to volunteer with the non-profit group Soft Power Education. The group worked at Lukolo Primary School, and although the others returned to the U.S. on June 22, Moulton decided to stay for another month to lead other groups of volunteers. More ...
Levitt Fellow Diana Mastrocola '06 Studying Local Non-profit Girls, Inc.
When Diana Mastrocola '06 (Reading, Mass.) opted to spend her summer conducting research as a Levitt Fellow, she simultaneously expanded her commitment to the Utica community. As a volunteer at Girls Inc. throughout the academic year, a program for girls ages 6-16 in Utica, Mastrocola wanted to know more about this national non-profit organization and particularly the demographic makeup of the Utica chapter.

10 Students in the Class of 2009 Participate in Summer Science Research
Speaking with this years participants in the STEP/Dreyfus program about their work, one would never guess that only five weeks ago none of them had had any college-level research experience. In fact, they had no experience with college life at all—these 10 students are members of the Hamilton class of 2009 and will matriculate as Hamilton students in the fall. The STEP/Dreyfus program provides funding for about 10 first-year students to spend five weeks in their pre-freshman summer working directly with Hamilton faculty doing summer research in biochemistry, chemistry, chemical physics, neuroscience and physics. The Hamilton program is one of only a handful of programs across the nation that allow pre-freshmen to engage in science research before formally matriculating in the institution.

Brendan O'Brien Studying Ethnicity and Democracy in the Ukraine
Many people will associate the November 2004 Ukrainian presidential election with images of the face of poisoned candidate Victor Yushcenko, which were flashed all over the news. Brendan O’Brien ’07 (Stoneham, Mass.) will remember this election for a different reason. As a Levitt Fellow he is focusing on the election this summer. O’Brien is spending 10 weeks surrounded by academic journals and articles about the ethnic Ukraine, and how this has related to government and democracy in the past 15 years, and he is compiling his research into a report titled “Ethnicity and Democracy in the Ukraine.”

NSF Awards $100,000 Grant to MERCURY Consortium
Winslow Professor of Chemistry George Shields was the principal investigator and Visiting Assistant Professor of Chemistry Karl Kirschner and System Administrator and Research Support Specialist Steve Young were key personnel on a $100,000 grant funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF). The grant, titled “Acquisition of a linux cluster for the Molecular Education and Research Consortium in Undergraduate Computational Chemistry (MERCURY)" has been funded by the NSF’s Division of Chemistry through the Major Research Instrumentation Program (MRI). The research efforts of the entire consortium of eight liberal arts colleges were essential for the success of the NSF-MRI grant. The Linux Cluster will be built, maintained, and operated at Hamilton, and all MERCURY members will use it for computational research in atmospheric chemistry, materials science and physical chemistry, and biochemistry.

Jonathan Overpeck '79 Publishes Findings on Arctic Ice Melt
Hamilton alumnus Jonathan Overpeck ’79, geosciences professor at the University of Arizona and chairman of the National Science Foundation’s Arctic System Science Committee, has published findings confirming that the rate of ice melting in the Arctic is increasing at an unprecedented rate due to the effects of global warming. The report was issued by the Arctic System Science Committee and published on August 23 in Eos, the weekly newspaper of the American Geophysical Union. Overpeck’s findings were released just a few weeks after the journal Nature released Hamilton geoscience professor Eugene Domack’s study conclusively confirming that the recent collapse of a major Antarctic ice shelf was due to the effects of global warming.

Shields Presents Lecture at Syracuse University on Atmospheric Chemistry
Winslow Professor of Chemistry George Shields presented a seminar for Syracuse University's Department of Chemistry on September 20.  His lecture, titled "Water Clusters in the Atmosphere: An Overview of Computational Chemistry Research at Hamilton College," featured the atmospheric chemistry work of Tim Evans '05, Frank Pickard '05, and Goldwater Scholars Meghan Dunn '06 and Mary Beth Day '07.  His talk also encompassed the collaboration between his group and his colleague Ted Dibble at the SUNY Environmental Science and Forestry. This work involves Marco Allodi '08 and Kristin Alongi '08, both of whom worked in the Shields lab over the summer and are continuing their research this fall. Dan Tomb '08, Ngoda Manongi '08, Pragyan Praghan '08, David Hamilton '09, and Jared Pienkos '09 also contributed to atmospheric chemistry research this past summer. Research progress in computational chemistry has been enhanced by the ongoing contributions of Assistant Professor of Chemistry Karl Kirschner.  Shields briefly reviewed the biochemical research of Sarah Taylor '03, Damien Ellens '03, Lorena Hernandez '03, Abby Markeson '04, Sarah Felder '07, Katrina Lexa '05, and Karilyn Larkin '06.

Kantrowitz Co-Authors Paper
Professor of Mathematics Robert Kantrowitz co-authored a
paper, "Optimization for products of concave functions," with Michael
M. Neumann of Mississippi State University, which appears in the
latest issue of Rendiconti del Circolo Matematico di Palermo.  In the
paper, Kantrowitz extends several classical optimization results for
concave functions on convex sets to the much larger class of products
of finitely many concave functions.
