What They Learned: Gabriel Braun '19

Chemistry major, biochemistry concentrator, and French and Francophone studies minor Gabriel Braun ’19 built his thesis on the work of nearly a generation of Haverford chemistry students. He had been working in Professor of Chemistry Karin Åkerfeldt’s lab since the summer after his sophomore year, and his thesis work was a continuation of past theses, including investigations conducted by at least five previous lab members.

Braun will spend next year at Lund University in Sweden, conducting research with his longtime collaborator Sara Linse under a Fulbright Research Award. "What They Learned" is a blog series exploring the thesis work of recent graduates.

What They Learned: Emma Bullock '19

For chemistry major and German minor Emma Bullock '19, the thesis process was all about improvisation and re-evaluation. Bullock's thesis began as an attempt to apply the techniques that her advisor uses to study oil to honeybee health, but it quickly became a lesson on flexibility in the lab.

This upcoming year Bullock will be working at the Max Planck Institute for Marine Microbiology in Bremen, Germany. "What They Learned" is a blog series exploring the thesis work of recent graduates.

Nick Takénobu Ogawa '05

There’s not really a road map for success as a non-classical cello player and composer, so Nick Takénobu Ogawa ’05 has been making his own path, one instinctual step at a time. Ogawa has been playing shows and releasing recordings under the nom-de-music Takénobu since he graduated from Haverford.

The Hurford Center for Arts & Humanities

The John B. Hurford ’60 Center for the Arts and Humanities (HCAH) supports the intellectual and artistic ambitions of faculty, students, and staff, fostering collaboration, experimentation, and critical thought under the auspices of the Cantor Fitzgerald Gallery, the Tuttle Creative Programs, and other Center initiatives.

To share her new hand-illustrated cookbook with the community, Sarah Jesup ’20, a double major in fine arts at Haverford and psychology at Bryn Mawr, hosted a salsa-making session in the VCAM community kitchen with help from the Hurford Center’s Student Arts Fund.
