Arctic expedition
Monday, July 1, 2019


Haverfordians are lifelong learners. The College's intellectually stimulating travel excursions for alumni are a popular way to explore the world alongside local guides, guest lecturers, and Haverford faculty experts

In June, 17 alumni and parents, along with 11 friends and family members, traveled to the Arctic Circle with Associate Professor of Chemistry and Environmental Studies Helen White to see the pristine fjords, glimmering glaciers, and the dramatic effects of climate change on world's most majestic landscapes.

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.
