Although the physical foundations of the Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment are still being laid, the center’s work has begun in earnest, thanks, in no small measure, to the talent and passion of its founding director, physical chemist and the Gerhard R. Andlinger Professor in Energy and the Environment Emily Carter. I have [...]
More useful projections of sea level are possible despite substantial uncertainty about the future behavior of massive ice sheets, according to Princeton University researchers. In two recent papers in the journals Nature Climate Change and the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS), the researchers present a probabilistic assessment of the Antarctic contribution to [...]
Five undergraduates have been awarded research funds from the Peter B. Lewis Fund for Student Innovation in Energy and the Environment. This competitive funding supports undergraduate research on energy- and environment-related projects, particularly field work and laboratory research. The recipients will spend eight weeks this summer working under the guidance of a faculty advisor. The students’ projects, [...]
Submissions for the 2013 Princeton University Art of Science Competition are now being accepted. The deadline for submissions is 11:59 p.m., Sunday, April 7, 2013. The Art of Science exhibition explores the interplay between science and art and consists of images produced during the course of scientific research that have aesthetic merit. The competition is [...]
Laura Strickler, Andlinger Center Associate Director for Administration, was one of six Princeton staff members recognized for their commitment to excellence and exceptional performance during the University’s annual Service Recognition Luncheon on March 19 in Jadwin Gymnasium. In addition, two staff members were honored for their leadership potential.
In a small room tucked in a corner of Princeton University’s MacMillan Building, computer screens cover the wall and line desktops, each displaying a colorful cornucopia of data used to monitor campus energy equipment and limit the University’s energy consumption.
