Senior Fellow Autumnrose Haroutunian
Autumnrose Haroutunian '10 Explores Phenomenology
“Your body knows something that your mind has forgotten,” says Autumnrose Haroutunian ’10. As one of three 2009-2010 Senior Fellows, Haroutunian is familiarizing herself with a concept known as phenomenology, a philosophical approach to issues of space and embodiment. More specifically, it professes a necessary break from the Cartesian dualism that separates mind and body. By forming a system with the objects of its perception, the body builds a foundation for an inter-subjective experience. Thus the concepts reflected on by the mind are second-order expressions of the world as we live it. More ...

Grace Stadnyk '10 Presents Talk at Math Conference
Grace Stadnyk '10 attended the Women in Math in New England conference at Smith College on Sept. 26 where she gave a talk titled "Towers of Hanoi Groups and Their Limit Spaces." The talk was based on research on fractal analysis that she conducted this summer at the University of Connecticut. More ...

Poster Session Highlights Summer Research
Professors, alumni, students and family members gathered in the Kirner-Johnson Mezzanine on Friday for the 2009 Levitt Summer Research Fellows Poster Session, an annual event that highlights some of the self-directed research that a select group of students takes on each summer. Posters documenting several months’ worth of studies in policy-related topics were on display in order to cultivate discussion among students, faculty and visiting alumni. This year, 16 juniors and seniors participated in the program, which is funded by the Arthur Levitt Public Affairs Center. Arthur Levitt Jr. P '81, former chairman of the Securities and Exchange Commission, attended the poster session before his lecture. More ...

Senior Fellow Gail Corneau Researching MRSA Staph Infections
For the entirety of her senior year, Gail Corneau ’10 will be pursuing research that targets MRSA staph infections, an antibiotic-resistant staphylococcus infection that can be fatal if untreated. Hospitals researching Vancomycin, a last resort antibiotic used to treat MRSA infections, recently discovered that Vancomycin-resistant bacteria strains have emerged during testing. More ...
Researchers at the Rome Sand Plain.
Students and Faculty Join Forces for Summer Research
More than 100 Hamilton students spent a portion of their summer conducting research with faculty. In the labs and the libraries, in fields and on the water, students and faculty explored such topics as bacterial diversity in nearby Green Lake, contemporary Indian cinema and regulations in the U.S. airline industry. Read more about their projects. More ...
Sam Cho '10 and Adam Van Wynsberghe
New Chemistry Prof. and Hamilton Junior Collaborate in UCSD Lab
Newly hired Assistant Professor of Chemistry Adam Van Wynsberghe became acquainted with Hamilton College before he even arrived. This summer, he and Hamilton student Sam Cho ’10 participated in biophysical chemistry research at the University of California at San Diego (UCSD), where Van Wynsberghe was an NIH Kirschstein post-doctoral fellow. He says the experience was “good for both parties” in that while Cho familiarized himself with the sort of research that could consume his career after Hamilton, Van Wynsberghe became acclimated to the Hamilton community through Cho.

Nathaniel Taylor '11
Nathaniel Taylor '11 Studies Effectiveness of Alpha-Fetoprotein Peptides
Following pregnancy, women sometimes have a high concentration of what is known as alpha-fetoprotein, a protein found in blood plasma and produced in the yolk sac and liver during the fetal stage of development. Previous studies have shown that the alpha-fetoprotein has pronounced affects against breast cancer, and therefore women who have had multiple births might be less at risk. This summer Nathaniel Taylor ’11 looked at two sub-derivatives (small pieces) of alpha-fetoprotein, Peptides TPVNP and STPNVP to see if the properties they possess could be extracted for pharmaceutical purposes. He worked on the research with Silas D. Childs Professor of Chemistry Robin Kinnel. More ...
Jiong Chen '10
Jiong Chen '10 Examines Digital Piracy in Levitt Research
China has long been criticized as a haven for piracy. The degree to which it exists there is so alarming that it would shiver ye timbers and condemn you straight to the depths of Davy Jones’ locker. At least, it would in the United States. But the kind of piracy that goes on in China is not usually discouraged, and is treated as a normal part of life. More than 90 percent of the Chinese population takes part in the search for the treasures of digital media culture, not gold. While citizens get much of their business software and electronic entertainment for free, their laid-back attitude has made piracy the number one issue for digital media companies that wish to make a profit. This summer Jiong Chen ’10 worked on a research project on the subject with Professor of Economics Elizabeth Jensen. More ...
Grace Liew '12
Grace Liew '12 Examines Paradigm Shift in Malaysian Politics
A few years ago, Grace Liew ’12 would have told you she had little interest in the politics of her native country. So it may come as a surprise that Grace spent her summer pursuing an Emerson Grant to investigate a paradigm shift in Malaysian politics. It was the trend of government itself that inspired Grace’s interest. In the 2008 elections, the leading party lost its majority, a new step for a nation that has not traditionally seen significant opposition in government. Liew’s research sought to examine the reasons for this development and to track its progress, aided by Professor of Philosophy Rick Werner. More ...
