Anoop Pandey '10 Studying Geology of Egypt
Anoop Pandey '10 is responsible for distributing the famed "golden bikes" for free student use on campus, but the part of the globe he's studying certainly isn't accessible by bike. This summer, Pandey is using remote sensing to study unusual fold structures along faults in the Western Desert of Egypt. He is working with Upson Chair for Public Discourse and Professor of Geosciences Barbara Tewksbury.  More ...

Peptides are Subject of Matthew Baxter '11 and Jason McGavin '12 Research
Jason McGavin '12 and Matthew Baxter '11 understand that a peptide's structure can say a lot about how it functions in the body. This summer, they are studying two versions of the peptide Piscidin – Piscidin 1 and Piscidin 3. They will work alongside Associate Professor of Chemistry Myriam Cotten, whose previous work in this field has illustrated that there is a distinct difference between them.  More ...
Deborah Barany '11 and Anthony Sali '10
Students Researching Posture-Based Movement Model in 3-D Space
Deborah Barany '11 and Anthony Sali '10 describe motor control in a way that would remind a listener of flip-book animation. An action consists of smaller, partial movements, that when assembled together and in the right fashion, trigger the complete maneuver. Similarly, flip books rely on persistence of vision to create the illusion of fluid motion, when in reality, they are just discontinuous images stapled together. More ...

Courtney Flint '11 Examines Relationships Between Continental Soldiers and Citizens
When Courtney Flint '11 was five years old, she learned what it was like to be a colonial American. Her aunt belonged to a group called Past Masters whose members dress in period clothing and resurrect the behavior, skills and lifestyles of Americans during the Revolutionary War era. Flint joined her aunt in these activities and watched the battle re-enactments that were often popular attractions. The raucous canon blasts and trim uniforms intrigued Flint, and as she grew older, she began to wonder about the relationship between the soldiers and the citizenry.  More ...

Elyse Williamson '10 and Professor Tewksbury Explore Iceland's Volcanoes
During the last Ice Age, the whole country of Iceland was covered in a thick sheet of ice. From an aerial view, most of the island would have appeared to be in a state of frigid serenity. But under the ice, chaos ensued – massive volcanoes entombed in the ice erupted often, causing the overlying ice to melt. As the hot lava erupted into cold water, explosions occurred, depositing fragmented rock and glass with few lava flows. More ...
Sokhna Aminata Diop ’11
Sokhna Aminata Diop '11 Serves as UNESCO Intern in Paris
Sokhna Aminata Diop '11 says it feels unusual to wear a suit and United Nations badge every day. In fact, she never once thought she would get the summer internship that she did – working for the UN was only a dream. More ...
Manique Talaia-Murray ’12 and Travis Tomaselli '11
Students Collect Sediments to Get to the Bottom of Oneida Lake Erosion
"I like rocks," said Manique Talaia-Murray '12 with a bashful grin. It might sound like a dull pursuit, but to Talaia-Murray and her research partner, Travis Tomaselli '11, rocks can uncover the past in interesting ways. They say that the chemical contents of a rock reveal a lot about its previous whereabouts, and their collaborative research project is a perfect example. More ...
Caroline Pierce '10 and Brian Milstone '10
Brian Milstone '10 and Caroline Pierce '10 Examine Self-Complexity
It's hard to imagine that a single human being occupies an enormous number of social spheres. Typically, a person who is relatively humble will feel that he assumes only a few roles in his immediate community. The degree to which a person can identify and differentiate his numerous roles and traits is called self-complexity. Brian Milstone '10 and Caroline Pierce '10 predict that low self-complexity yields low self-esteem, and could lead to a greater likelihood of depression.  More ...

Jacob Kleinrock '11 Explores Herban Living
Herban Living – an organic, community-based farm located in Temple, N.H. – is not like stereotypical farms in books or movies. Yes, it raises cows and pigs. But the community also lavishly celebrates the solstices. More ...
