Two Caltech Grads Selected for Fulbright Fellowships

Jade Livingston (BS ’20), who majored in biology and is from Chappaquiddick Island in Massachusetts, will travel to Melbourne, Australia, to study marine microbes found on coral reefs. Karen Pham (BS ’20), who majored in geology and is from Orange, California, will travel to Oslo, Norway, to explore how best to incorporate fossil data into computational evolutionary models.The Fulbright Scholar Program, created by the U.S. Congress in 1946, is a cultural exchange program that offers grants to Americans who wish to perform research or pursue creative activities abroad. More than 140 countries are involved in the program, which sends approximately 1,200 scholars from the United States abroad each year. The fellowships usually begin a few months after graduation, but COVID-related travel restrictions have delayed this year’s program until early 2021 at the soonest.Livingston, whose interest in science was kindled at an early age by the exploits of French marine explorer Jacques Cousteau, says the opportunity to study marine biology in Australia fulfills a childhood dream.As a freshman at Caltech, Livingston discovered a love of microbiology in the lab of Dianne Newman, the Gordon M. Binder/Amgen Professor of Biology and Geobiology, and later worked at the Marine Biological Laboratory in Woods Hole, Massachusetts. In Australia, she will work with Linda Blackall and Madeleine van Oppen of the University of Melbourne. Blackall and van Oppen have cultivated a coral algae that can survive higher temperatures, making them less prone to the coral bleaching associated with rising ocean temperatures. Livingston plans to see whether that heat tolerance is the result of a symbiotic relationship between the algae and any microbes associated with them. Eventually, this line of research could help develop strategies to protect coral reefs from climate change.“It’s microbiology and marine biology and functional science. That’s inspiring to me—to do science that has practical applications. I value discovery for discovery’s sake, but I like to know that down the line this could really help the world,” Livingston says.Pham, who was planning to begin her Fulbright work in August, will instead matriculate in the fall in the PhD program in geosciences at Pennsylvania State University, where she will conduct research until travel restrictions are eased. There, she will work with paleoecologist Sarah Ivory to study how the environmental evolution of the earth over geologic time affects species distributions and therefore their extinction risks. Pham has already won Penn State’s Fund for Excellence in Graduate Recruitment award and a University Graduate Fellowship, as well as a National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship.Currently, Pham works with George Rossman, professor of mineralogy, on using neural networks to improve mineral identifications. Once in Norway, Pham plans to collaborate with Lee Hsiang Liow of the University of Oslo. Liow also has an affiliation with the Natural History Museum of Oslo, and will work with Pham on research that examines the best ways to incorporate data gathered from fossils into computational evolutionary models. Such models allow scientists to better understand the rate at which new species are created as well as rates of extinction. Specifically, Pham plans to work with bryozoans, colony-dwelling aquatic invertebrates that are well-established in the fossil record.“The Fulbright Program is an amazing opportunity to work face-to-face for months with researchers who you might otherwise only connect with at conferences or through email. A global perspective is crucial to develop in science, and I am so grateful to be able to not only work with Lee Hsiang but to do so while living in a different country,” Pham says. “I’m looking forward to getting started.”More than 390,000 scholars have received a Fulbright Fellowship since the program’s inception in 1946. The Fulbright Program awards approximately 8,000 grants annually, according to its website. Subscribe Get our daily Pasadena newspaper in your email box.

Brisbane cottage sees a large crowd fill a small room, but proximity didn’t stifle strong bids

first_img32 Prince Street Paddington Brisbane Qld 4064The three bedrooms, renovated cottage checked off the tick list of smart real estate — close to cool urban facilities, city skyline glimpses and a reasonably level block with plenty of room to grow.Urban Property Agents principal Daniel Argent said, before the auction, he was expecting an impressive result.“People are just going crazy for cottages with renovation potential,” Mr Argent said.“We should have at least 10 bidders here which will probably be the highest number of bidders we’ve had at an auction this year,” he said.The home looked underwhelming from the outside — a simple floor plan with a tidy renovation — well maintained and highly rentable.But in Paddington it’s all about position and potential, and this home had both in spades.In the crowd were a number of recognisable property faces, including Rob Graya who’s company, Graya Constructions, is known for taking ordinary property and creating spectacular homes.Another was Property Pursuit principal Meighan Hetherington who was there to represent a client with plans to move from interstate to Brisbane.“Our clients are attracted to the position with the cafes and boutiques in Paddington — and Paddington, we think, is one of the suburbs that is undervalued currently,” Ms Hetherington said.Come auction time, 13 registered bidders were on the books, so action looked set to be frantic.And it was.More from newsParks and wildlife the new lust-haves post coronavirus23 hours agoNoosa’s best beachfront penthouse is about to hit the market23 hours agoMoments after auctioneer, Sam Devlin, called for an opening bid, Ms Hetherington raised the paddle at $815,000. The auction certainly filled the lounge.In the end, 15 registered bidders saw eight raise a paddle and 65 bids made from start to finish.Speaking after proceedings, Ms Hetherington said her clients were very pleased with the outcome.“The buyers are extremely happy with the purchase — they’re really looking forward to living in the Paddington community,” she said.Another family on its way to calling Brisbane home.Follow Kieran Clair on Twitter at @kieranclair Meighan Hetherington and Sam Devlin take care of business after the auction.

Most moves ranged from $5000 to $10,000 with eight parties giving it a try.When asked at $910,000 whether the property was now on the market, a glance and a nod between Mr Devlin and Mr Argent signalled the home was going to the highest bidder.With that information now out on the floor, offers ran hot again, but at even lesser degrees.Bids were from as low as $500 up to $4000.Ms Hetherington eventually proffered $961,000 and with everyone else silent, the home was declared sold.

Orange blow 2 goal lead in 3rd period, lose to RIT 6-4

first_img Published on November 16, 2018 at 11:32 pm Contact Danny: [email protected] | @DannyEmerman Comments Facebook Twitter Google+center_img Four minutes into the third period, Syracuse (4-8-1, 4-3-0 College Hockey America) was in control. Sophomore forward Emma Polaski had just scored her third goal of the game to give Syracuse a 4-2 lead.RIT (3-6-4, 1-2-0 CHA) then scored four unanswered goals to sink SU, 6-4, in Tennity Ice Pavilion.RIT’s Kendall Cornine put the Tigers on the board first, beating Maddi Welch short side with a wrist shot three minutes into the game.Redshirt junior Lindsay Eastwood responded in the second period by blasting a slapshot from the point past RIT’s Terra Lanteigne. Out of SU’s top-six leading goal scorers, three — Jessica DiGirolamo, Allie Munroe, and Eastwood — are defenders.“The D are jumping into the play, and it’s creating offensive chances and we’re capitalizing on them,” Eastwood said earlier this week. “So that’s definitely huge and, you know, take care of business in the back and go to work up front is always the way we like to put it.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textEastwood’s third goal of the season came on the power play and began a high-scoring second period.Later in the second, RIT took back the lead with a goal from forward Logan Land, whose wrist shot lasered past Welch’s glove. Then, Polaski took over.It took ten seconds for Polaski to even the game again with her team-leading sixth goal of the season. Then, she finished a three-on-one break to give SU its first lead, at 3-2 15 minutes into the second period.Polaski’s eight goals are four more than SU’s second scoring leader, freshman Lauren Bellefontaine.Polaski wasn’t done, though. To open the third period, she redirected a shot in front of the net to record her first hat trick of her SU career. Her third goal of the game gave SU a 4-2 lead with 15 minutes remaining in the game.RIT forward Claudia Black’s goal with eight minutes left in the game made it 4-3. Then, RIT tied it back up with a flukey goal late in the game. A Tiger forward dumped it into SU’s defensive zone and it looked like Welch collected it. It appeared to be a routine play, but Welch couldn’t find the puck at her skate before Kathryn Kennedy crashed the net and snuck the puck in to tie the game.RIT continued their run by scoring on a deflection 45 seconds later to retake the lead.An empty-netter made it 6-4. Syracuse is now 0-5-1 at home. They travel to the University of Vermont next Friday and don’t play another home game until Dec. 6, when Colgate comes to Syracuse.last_img read more
