A different look

May 10, 2017 - 1:35pm
Whoa. Transported indeed. That's the thought I had when I, and a few of my colleagues, ventured out into the pouring rain last Friday afternoon to check out the newest exhibit at the Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum. "The Transported Man" is the largest exhibition on view since the museum's opening in 2012 and is also ridiculously cool. Like, there's a life-sized fake elephant hanging from the ceiling by its trunk cool. And spaghetti walls and mirrors. And all sorts of interesting things to make you look at things differently. Oh, and crickets. Did I mention the live crickets? (Don't worry, they're not harmed, they're totally happy and chirping away in a natural habitat.) Seriously, if you're anywhere near campus from now until Oct. 22, you really should check it out. (The museum is free and open to the public from noon to 7 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday.) Even if modern art isn't your thing, I would still bet that you'll see something that strikes your fancy. Not to mention, the building itself is a masterpiece of art itself. Love what you see or even hate it, it will always make you think. That's what art is all about. Those of us who ventured out on the short walk over to the museum have been really busy lately. But there's something magical about doing something different that invigorates that mind and soothes the soul. It was exactly what we needed.

May 10, 2017 - 1:29pm
This is the lens through which I see my work: How can we improve conditions for those who are incarcerated, who often don't have a voice? People in prison are often marginalized, which drives me to figure out what is necessary to try and improve their lives.

Helping aspiring scientists

May 8, 2017 - 11:42pm
Take a stroll through any campus research building on any given day, and you'll feel it: an air of mystery. It surrounds the potentially groundbreaking science taking place in the labs that line the hallway, as much as it surrounds the people in the labs doing the science - the researchers.
