Sarah Hammond '14
Sarah Hammond ’14 to Begin Software Engineering Career at Amazon

Many Hamilton students take full advantage of the College’s open curriculum by exploring an assortment of new disciplines in their first year. Sometimes these academic adventures lead to unexpected careers. When Sarah Hammond ’14 registered for Introduction to Computer Science, she had no experience in the subject. Four years later after double concentrating in math and computer science, she is set to begin a career in software development at Amazon.com. Hammond was the valedictorian of the Class of 2104.  More ...

Nick Brewer ’14 Researches People's Ability to Detect Lies

Recent studies have found that the average American lies 11 times a week.  It is, of course, possible to tell a lie that goes undetected or, alternatively, to be accused of lying when innocent.  With the help of Stuart Hirshfield, the Stephen Harper Kirner Professor of Computer Sciences, Nick Brewer ’14 is researching how well people detect lies and accept truths.  More ...

Preventing the Spread of False Information

Information, regardless of its accuracy, spreads rapidly through social media, reaching and influencing millions of readers.  In special instances, stories achieve viral status, where a large number of people receive the material within days, if not hours. Unfortunately, oftentimes information is incorrect, yet people accept it as true.  More ...

The Taylor Science Center
Twelve Female Science Students Receive Clare Boothe Luce Undergraduate Research Award

Twelve of Hamilton’s outstanding female science students are the first recipients of the Clare Boothe Luce Undergraduate Research Award. The new annual award will fund up to 12 female scientists each summer over the course of three years as Clare Boothe Luce Scholars in the fields of computer science, physics and chemistry. The $144,600 grant from the Henry Luce Foundation will be matched with funds from Hamilton.  More ...

Diane Paverman '13 and Eric Murray '13.
Student Researchers “Teach” Computer to Identify Human State of Mind

George Orwell’s iconic dystopian novel 1984 famously featured cameras capable of discerning a person’s state of mind – their contentedness, truthfulness or trustfulness – simply by looking at their face. The year 1984 came and went without such a technology emerging, but as demonstrated by Diane Paverman ’13 and Eric Murray’s ’13 summer research on the functional near-infrared spectrometer (fNIRS), scientists are getting closer to achieving Orwellian-like surveillance capabilities.  More ...

Sarah Hammond '14 and Justin Smith '14
Hammond ’14 and Smith ’14 Create New Text Analysis Software

Imagine being able to select any written document on a computer and automatically know where the writer struggled, which sections the writer breezed through, and if the writer had plagiarized – all without reading a single word of the document itself. The idea seems simple enough to conceive with the use of text extracting programs and subsequent algorithms, but, surprisingly, no software maker has produced such a product.  More ...

Research Corporation grant collaborators Alistair Campbell, Wei-Jen Chang and Natalia Connolly.
Science Faculty Awarded Research Corporation Grant for Collaborative Work on Ich

Hamilton faculty Wei-Jen Chang (biology), Natalia Connolly (physics), and Alistair Campbell (computer science) have just been awarded a Multi-Investigator Cottrell College Science Award by the Research Corporation.  This award, in the amount of $100,000, is for developing novel computational techniques for investigating gene interaction networks in fish parasite called Ichthyopthirius multifiliis (Ich).  More ...

Leanne Hirshfield
Hirshfield ’02 Named Technical Award Winner

Research Associate Leanne Hirshfield ’02 was named 2011 Young Technologist of the Year by the Mohawk Valley Engineers’ Executive Council (MVEEC). According to the MVEEC, the award acknowledges the winner’s work and “contributions to our area’s knowledge base and to the next generation of technologists.”  More ...
