I photographed Heather Hendershot, professor of film and media studies at MIT, for a spotlight feature on the university’s homepage. The story is about Hendershot’s study of the conservative movement’s strategic use of television through the decades and her new book on the subject “What’s Fair on the Air?: Cold War Right-Wing Broadcasting and the Public Interest.”
MIT historian Craig Wilder photographed in the MIT Archives for a spotlight feature for the MIT News service. The story is about Prof. Wilder’s most recent book “Ebony & Ivy: Race, Slavery, and the Troubled History of America’s Universities” which takes a look at the many links between US universities and slavery.
I photographed Tomás Palacios, the Emmanuel E. Landsman Career Development Associate Professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology for the MIT News service. The story is about Palacios’ work using ‘extreme materials’ such as gallium nitride and graphene to make electronics faster, more energy efficient and more affordable. He is also looking at new ways to use the materials as chemical and biological sensors like in glucose levels in blood samples.
