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

Noreen Khawaja

Religious Studies

Noreen Khawaja specializes in 19th and 20th century European intellectual history, and particularly on the shifting status of religious ideas in late modern Western philosophy and culture. Her research examines the collapse of metaphysics both historically and philosophically. She looks at this issue in relation to secularity, the retrieval of theological traditions, and the rise of critical discourses on religion. She is currently working on a book that studies how Christian models of conversion formed the basis of the ideal of personal authenticity in existential thought, focusing on Søren Kierkegaard and Martin Heidegger.

 She completed her Ph.D. from Stanford University in 2012. In 2010 she was a DAAD Research Fellow in the Philosophy Faculty of Albert-Ludwigs-Universität Freiburg. She has recently published an article on the problem of individuality in Kierkegaard and Karl Löwith. At Yale, she teaches courses on modern Christian thought, phenomenology, existentialism, and on a variety of topics in the philosophy of religion.

David Kohn

TimescaleAfter studying environmental engineering as an undergrad, David continued work on an electrochemical desalination technique as a post-graduate fellow then formed an award winning startup around the technology (Red Ox Systems). However, the technology ended up being too early to really build a business around, so he joined a battery manufacturing startup called Urban Electric Power . After a year or so, he became responsible for dealing with the battery cycling data and became interested in databases and big data. He then spent some time at an advertising analytics company called Moat, working on heavily modified PostgreSQL data warehouses powering the main analytics product. He decided to go further into the database world and joined a 10 person startup called Timescale dealing with time series data. He's served in multiple roles and has been growing with Timescale as it has doubled and redoubled in size over the last few years.

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. Portions have appeared in Critical Inquiry and elsewhere. Email Jonathan Kramnick
