Steve Mello '11
Contraception in Rwanda is Topic of Levitt Fellow Research
Among the myriad problems facing Rwanda, population control is one of the most urgent. A 2000 Demographic and Health Survey found that only 4 percent of women in Rwanda were using contraception. This low percentage gives rise to several problems, including high infant and mother death rates. With his summer Levitt Fellowship research, Steve Mello ’11 is examining data from two demographic and health surveys to see whether an increase in contraception leads to healthier children. More ...
Hanna Kahrmann-Zadak '12 takes her daily sample from a well in Clinton village.
Digging Deep Into Clinton’s Well Water
Every morning, Hanna Kahrmann-Zadak ’12 rides her bike from outside Clinton up the Hill to get to the lab. But before reaching her destination, she makes three pit stops to pick up her samples from two wells and nearby Oriskany Creek. She and Associate Professor of Geosciences Todd Rayne are embarking on a project that could prove extremely significant, especially to the community of Clinton: plotting the changes in the components of groundwater and of Oriskany Creek as they correlate to precipitation events.

Spain’s Mondragon Cooperatives: An Economic Model?
The business world is basically divided into two camps: socialism and capitalism. In socialist economies, businesses are owned and controlled by the state, and in capitalist economies, shares in ownership are traded on the public market. In his summer Levitt Fellowship research, Shichen Xu ’12 will be exploring the economic middle ground between capitalism and socialism by studying the behavior of the Mondragon Cooperatives in the Basque region of Spain.

Sarah Andrus ’12 Seeks to Uncover Mystery of Octopamine
Clad in pseudo-space-age garb, Sarah Andrus ’12 looks somewhat out of place striding through a grassy field and not bounding over lunar craters. Despite her more mundane surroundings, Andrus’ quest still leads to an exploration of sorts: she is collecting samples of honeybees and fruit flies for her research with Associate Professor of Biology Herman Lehman. These samples may help to dispel some of the mystery surrounding the effects of a little-understood compound called octopamine. More ...

Levitt Fellow Annie Hudson ’12 Studying State-Building in Balkans
The Balkan states are marked by great ethnic pride and nationalism. Ethnic tensions have stirred conflict on the Balkan Peninsula for thousands of years, and in the age of globalism, defining an ethnic and nationalistic identity is of increasing importance for the Balkan countries. This summer, Annie Hudson ’12 will travel to and conduct research in Kosovo, Serbia and Macedonia to study national cohesiveness and state-building. More ...

Cristina Garafola '11
Cultures of Dissent in China and Russia are Levitt Fellow's Topic
Political ideology goes a long way in determining how a state deals with a crisis. Authoritarian regimes, historically, have been the least tolerant of dissent, but authoritarian reactions to dissent have been diverse, ranging from openness and tolerance to censorship and violence. Levitt Fellow Cristina Garafola ’11 is especially interested in the authoritarian regimes in China and Russia, and will spend the summer  learning more about the cultures of dissent and the governments’ responses in China and Russia. More ...

Nevers '10 publishes with Camille Jones
Tom Nevers '10 and his senior thesis advisor, Assistant Professor of Chemistry Camille Jones, have published an article titled "Temperature-dependent distortions of the host structure of propylene oxide clathrate hydrate," published in The Journal of Physical Chemistry C (published in the March 11 print issue and Feb. 17 online). The article is a result of a detailed structural study they performed of clathrate hydrate, an arrangement of atoms and molecules in an ice-like compound. More ...
