Graeme Berlyn

Forestry and Environmental Studies

Graeme Berlyn’s interests are the morphology and physiology of trees and forests in relation to environmental stress. Leaves are the most responsive and vulnerable organs of trees, and Professor Berlyn studies the ways that leaf structure and function reveal the effects of environmental change such as global warming or altitudinal and latitudinal gradients. In addition, these studies can help determine the optimum range of habitats for individual species and thus be of use in reforestation and aforestation. Some of the techniques used to study these problems are: light processing by leaves in relation to environmental factors as measured by chlorophyll fluorescence, photosynthesis, spectral reflectance, absorption, and transmission; and image analysis of leaf and tree structure. Professor Berlyn has also pioneered in the development of organic biostimulants that can help plants resist insect, disease, and other environmental stressors while reducing fertilizer use. Thus the Berlyn lab focuses on how to measure the stress of plant life and also on how to ameliorate it. Students in the Berlyn lab are currently working on such topics as structural and functional change along elevational gradients in mountains, molecular control of sun/shade leaf phenotypic plasticity, response of tropical pioneer species to gaps in tropical forests, and the role of antioxidants, stress vitamins, and mycorrhizas in organic biostimulants.

Ruth Blake

Geology and Geophysics

Ruth Blake’s research has been the characterization and interpretation of oxygen isotope fractionations in the PO4-water system during biogeochemical cycling of phosphorous in natural waters and sediments. A major area of current research surrounds characterization and “ground-truthing” of 18O/16O ratios (18O) signatures of phosphates in mid-ocean ridge hydrothermal Fe-oxide deposits, with the goal of identifying reliable 18Op biosignatures and isotopic tracers of microbial activity and phosphorous cycling at mid-ocean ridges, in Earth’s deep biosphere, Mars and beyond. Many of the activities her laboratory are devoted to development of methods for extraction and O isotopic analysis of PO4 in a range of geologic, biologic and extraterrestrial materials including deep-sea sediments, ancient rocks; biomass, and Martian soil analogue materials.

Daniel Botsman

History

Daniel Botsman teaches courses on the history of Japan from 1500 to the present. 

Born in Lae, Papua New Guinea (site of one of the many brutal battles fought between Allied and Japanese forces during the Second World War), he spent his formative years in Brisbane, Australia, where he was introduced to the Japanese language at a young age.  After an extended visit to Osaka as a high school student the study of Japanese history and society quickly became a guiding intellectual passion.  He went on to complete his B.A. in Asian Studies (Hons.) at the Australian National University in Canberra and was awarded the 1992 Rhodes Scholarship for his home state of Queensland. After two years at Merton College, Oxford, where he received an M.Phil. in Economic and Social History, he completed his graduate studies at Princeton University, earning his Ph.D. in History in 1999. 

His first academic appointment was in the Faculty of Law at Hokkaido University in Sapporo, where he taught for a year before returning to the United States to take up a position in the history department at Harvard.  In 2006 he moved to the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where he was recipient of the James M. Johnston Award for Excellence in Teaching.

Botsman’s publications include a translation of the memoirs of a prominent post-war foreign minister, Okita Saburo: A Life In Economic Diplomacy (Canberra: Australia-Japan Research Center, 1993), and a study of the history of punishment from the 16th to the 20th centuries, Punishment and Power in the Making of Modern Japan(Princeton: Princeton University Press, 2005), also available in Japanese as Chi nurareta jihi, muchi utsu teikoku (Tokyo: Intershift, 2009).

His current research examines the impact that Western ideas about slavery and emancipation had on Japanese society in the second half of the nineteenth century, focusing particularly on the experiences of Japan’s outcaste communities.  He is also at work on a volume of translations of important recent work by Japanese social historians, and an introduction to Japanese women’s history, which he is co-authoring with former UNC colleague, Jan Bardsley.

Victoria Brescoll

School of Mangement

Victoria Brescoll’s research focuses on the impact of stereotypes on individuals’ status and power within organizations, particularly for individuals who violate gender stereotypes. Her study “Can an Angry Woman Get Ahead? Gender, Status Conferral, and Workplace Emotion Expression,” published in Psychological Science, concluded that people reward men who get angry but view angry women as incompetent and unworthy of status and power in the workplace. The research was widely reported on in the popular press including the New York Times, Business Week, the Wall Street Journal, the Washington Post, National Public Radio, and U.S. News & World Report.

Additionally, Professor Brescoll examines how having power may differentially affect men and women’s behavior at work. In 2012, she published a paper in Administrative Science Quarterly, “Who Takes the Floor and Why: Gender, Power, and Volubility in Organizations,” showing that, for men, there is a strong relationship between having power and talking a lot in organizational settings (e.g., the United States Senate), but for women, there is no such relationship. Her other research interests include the cultural origins of stereotypes (e.g. the media), corporate social responsibility, and framing messages to improve health policy.

She received her MS, MPhil, and PhD in social psychology from Yale University where she was supported by a graduate research fellowship from the National Science Foundation. She completed her BA in psychology from the University of Michigan. In 2004, Professor Brescoll worked in the office of Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton under a Congressional Fellowship.

Yannick Jacob

Molecular, Cellular and Developmental BiologyYannick Jacob was born in Quebec, Canada. He obtained his B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees at Université de Montréal specializing in biochemistry. His M.Sc. research was performed with B. Franz Lang on the evolution of tmRNAs and their roles in regulating protein translation in bacteria. Yannick then moved to the U.S. to pursue a doctoral degree in Plant Genetics at Indiana University (Bloomington). There, he worked in the laboratory of Scott D. Michaels on the molecular genetics of flowering time in Arabidopsis and the epigenetic regulation of DNA replication. His doctoral work led to the discovery of novel chromatin-modifying proteins regulating DNA replication in plants. After his graduate studies, Yannick worked as a Post-Doctoral Fellow at the Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory (CSHL) in New York in the laboratory of Rob Martienssen. During this time, he discovered that single amino acid differences between histone variants could regulate the activity of chromatin-modifying proteins. This finding revealed a new layer of epigenetic regulation present in all eukaryotes. At the CSHL, Yannick was a Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI) Research Associate and a recipient of post-doctoral fellowships from Fonds de la recherche en santé du Québec (FRQS). As of July 2015, Yannick is an assistant professor in the Department of Molecular, Cellular and Developmental Biology at Yale University. His research is focused on elucidating how chromatin regulates diverse processes, including DNA replication and genome engineering.Email Yannick Jacob

Jonathan Kramnick

EnglishMy research and teaching is in eighteenth century literature and philosophy, philosophical approaches to literature, and cognitive science and the arts. My first book—Making the English Canon: Print Capitalism and the Cultural Past, 1700-1770 (Cambridge, 1999)—examined the role of criticism and aesthetic theory in the creation of a national literary tradition. My second—Actions and Objects from Hobbes to Richardson (Stanford, 2010)—considered representations of mind and material objects along with theories of action during the long eighteenth century. Building on this study, my current book project asks what distinctive knowledge the literary disciplines and literary form can contribute to discussions of such topics as perceptual consciousness, created and natural environments, and skilled engagement with the world.

Enrique Mayer Behrendt

AnthropologyBorn in the highlands of Peru to Jewish immigrant parents who had fled Nazi Germany, Enrique Mayer completed his college education at the London School of Economics and received his doctorate from Cornell University. His professional career as a university teacher began at the Pontificia Universidad Católica in Lima, Peru. He later moved to Mexico City, where he took charge of the Department of Anthropological Research at the Inter American Indian Institute. In 1982 he joined the faculty of University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign with a joint appointment in the Department of Anthropology and the Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies. In 1995, he became a member of the Anthropology Department at Yale University. Professor Mayer specializes in Andean agricultural systems and Latin American peasantries. His work has shown that regions characterized by diversity (such as mountainous environments, small islands, and “marginal” lands), not suitable for agribusiness, are exploited by peasants in strikingly similar ways. Worldwide, peasant forms of production predominate and persist in these environments. These agricultural systems are important to those concerned about world genetic resources, or about environmental conservation, and to scholars who seek an understanding of ancient and yet also very contemporary Non Western rural life-ways. He is currently collecting “ugly” stories about the agrarian reform in Peru (1969), finding that most people, although they benefited from it, nonetheless feel victimized and regard the reform as a failure. He is also the author of The Articulated Peasant: Household Economies in the Andes (2001). Email Enrique Mayer Behrendt

Gregory McCarthy

Our research program is concerned with the functional organization of the human brain. We seek to identify and characterize functional brain processes, and to determine how these processes are evident in psychological phenomena. We are also interested in how these functional brain processes and their anatomical substrates are altered in pathological states. A current and enduring theme of our research is social perception and cognition. We have been particularly interested in the manner in which information about the surface features of animate entities (such as faces and bodies) and information about motion trajectories contribute to inferences about the goals and intentions of social agents. With respect to the brain, these studies have focused on two regions: 1) ventral occipitotemporal cortex, an area generally associated with the perception of visual categories including faces and bodies, and 2) lateral occipitotemporal cortex, and area associated with biological motion. Another research theme is the neuroscience of executive processing and working memory. We are interested in the way that task-irrelevant stressors influence functional connectivity between the amygdala, inferior frontal gyrus, and ventromedial prefrontal cortex when subjects are engaged in demanding primary tasks such as working memory or maze finding. Our methods include neuroimaging (functional and structural MRI, and diffusion tensor imaging), EEG and ERP from scalp recordings in healthy volunteers, intracranial EEG recording and direct cortical stimulation in patients, eye tracking, and behavioral measures.Email Gregory McCarthy

He took his post-doctoral training in Immunology at Harvard where he also spent several years as an Assistant Professor. His investigative interests are in human translational neuroimmunology, with specific focus on defining the mechanisms by which B-cells affect tissue damage in autoimmunity. To this end, his group is engaged in understanding how B-cell subsets initiate and sustain autoimmunity. His team’s accomplishments include refining the role of Epstein-Barr virus in the multiple sclerosis (MS) brain and further defining the role of autoantibodies in children and adults with MS. They recently identified a network of B-cells that populate the MS central nervous system by trafficking through the cervical lymph nodes. Their current efforts include defining the immunopathology of myasthenia gravis (MG). His group demonstrated that MG antigen-specific T-cells belong to the pro-inflammatory Th17 subset and determined that MG patients harbor defects in B-cell tolerance. Their current focus is on describing the mechanisms of autoantibody production in MG, using high-throughput sequencing, toward the aim of improving therapeutic approaches.

Wake Smith

Wake Smith graduated from TC in the class of 79. Among his fondest Trumbull memories was as a freshman joining the throng assembled in the main court yard to hear the then “College Master” implore in ringing tones the Trumbullians to bravely march forth and win bladderball yet again. They (we) did! Wake sang with the Alley Cats and the Glee Club, played JV lacrosse (there really was such a thing), and competed eagerly on the Trumbull’s Tang Team (competitive speed beer drinking -- there really was that too). Wake went on to get an MBA from an institution by the Charles River that will remain nameless and to have a 30+ year career in commercial aviation and finance. Wake is an Operating Partner at New State Capital Partners and lives in Bronxville NY.
