Student Spotlight: March 2018

Student Spotlight: March 2018

In this issue, we're pleased to spotlight the achievements of several of our present and former PWR students.

Paul Bator had double good news to share about his former student, Steve Rathje.  Steve not only has published his piece, "The power of framing: It's not what you say, it's how you say it" in the Guardian last summer; he also is a recent recipient of the Gates Cambridge Scholarship Award.

If you watch Comedy Central's show, The Opposition with Jordan Klepper, you might have seen Emily Polk's former student, Tammy Whe-Ah Cho, talk about her work on sexual harrassment in the workplace during an episode at the end of November entitled, "Silicon Valley's War on Men."  Tammy had interviewed more than 200 women to develop her research-based argument.

Emily Polk also has another student with good news: her PWR 1 student, Cathy Do, submitted her RBA to Southern International Review and just recieved confirmation that it will be published in an upcoming issue.

Carolyn Ross's former student, Akshay Rajagopal, now a senior in Electrical Engineering, has received the 2018  Frederick Emmons Terman Award for scholastic achievement in engineering.  The award is presented only to the top 5% of seniors in engineering.

Irena Yamboliev's former PWR 1 student, Justin Muchnick, had his PWR RBA, "Dali, Disney, and the Dionysian: What's Wrong with the Happiest Place on Earth," published in the December 2017 issue of the Journal of American Culture.
