Brian Gravel

Associate Professor
Education
Brian's research focuses on students' representational practices in science and engineering studied using design-based research on learning technologies and socio-technical learning environments. This work builds from the development of SAM Animation, which is stop-motion animation software developed at the Center for Engineering Education and Outreach. Brian co-developed SiMSAM: a multi-representational toolkit to support creative computational modeling activities for middle grades learners. Curious about design, play, and making, his more recent work involves partnerships with researchers and educators to start Nedlam's Workshop in 2014, a makerspace in an urban high school that emphasizes multidisciplinary inquiry. Through this work, he developed both empirical and theoretical contributions focused on heterogeneous design, STEM literacies in making, and analyses of how communities of makers organize to support each other's practices. Collectively, his research complicates and expands the field's understandings of how inquiry unfolds in making contexts, and how makerspaces can be a site for equitable and dignified participation in STEM. Brian's newer work involves teachers engaging in playful computational making to study how they (re)negotiate relationships to inquiry, disciplines, computational tools, and heterogeneous ways of knowing. This includes the exploration of geographies of care and responsibility that support STEM learning environments that center wellbeing. His scholarship examines the many facets of making and making spaces in schools, both in the United States and abroad. Brian's collaborative research has been funded by the National Science Foundation, the LEGO Foundation, and the Spencer Foundation.

Timothy Griffin

Associate Professor
Agriculture, Food and Environment
Agriculture and the Environment: This is the constant theme of my work since my undergraduate days. Within the AFE program, this incudes assessments of resource use (land, water, etc.) by current and future production strategies and systems. My current efforts are informed by having conducted decades of field and laboratory research on crop management, alternative crop development, short- and long-term effects of cropping systems on potato yield and quality, management strategies to improve soil quality, manure nitrogen and phosphorus availability, soil carbon sequestration and cycling, emission of greenhouse gases from high-value production systems, and grain production for organic dairy systems. Sustainable and Equitable Food Systems: Environmental outcomes are one of several realms or domains that are encompassed by a Sustainable Food System. The Friedman School is uniquely placed to link agriculture, nutrition and health, economics, and individual and societal well-being. Of particular interest is the role of diets as a driver of sustainability outcomes, and includes policy-oriented efforts such as my role advising the 2015 Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee, to include sustainability in the Dietary Guidelines for Americans. Interdisciplinary Education and Mentoring: The AFE program is inherently interdisciplinary, as is the Friedman School. My particular interest is to provide education and research opportunities so that students can develop the specific skills necessary to work at the interface of different disciplines or domains.

Terry Haas

Professor Emeritus
Chemistry
Physical Inorganic and Materials Chemistry. Current work is largely in the area of solid-state electronic and ionic conducting materials, and attempts to achieve useful optical and electronic properties through an understanding of the fundamental contributing effects. An example is the attempt to obtain nearly-free-electron (metallic) behavior in metal oxide bronzes and other intercalation compounds, in both bulk and thin-film materials. Synthesis of new materials and the characterization of their electronic, structural, and transport properties is the major goal of the work. To this end, we use optical spectroscopic (UV-VIS, NIR, IR) and magnetic measurements to probe electronic ground state structures, single crystal and powder X-ray diffraction to investigate crystallography and conductivity, Hall-effect measurements to probe electronic transport, and electrochemical means to investigate thermodynamic properties and kinetics of ionic motion.

David Hammer

Professor
Education
Research on learning and instruction. My research is on learning and teaching in STEM fields (mostly physics) across ages from young children through adults. Much of my focus has been on intuitive "epistemologies," how instructors interpret and respond to student thinking, and resource-based models of knowledge and reasoning.
