I've had a busy month and a half of work in Massachusetts and Rhode Island for the Chronicle of Higher Education, one of my favorite publications to work for. The subjects have been all over the place, from a jars of fecal transplant material with Open Biome at MIT to the Kennedy Library for a portrait of Harvard professor Elaine Scarry on her book about how nuclear capability is fundamentally at odds with democracy to the University of Massachusetts - Amherst's plans to reduce the size of its campus to an interdisciplinary graduate program at Brown University (where I photographed grad student Arielle Schilit Nitenson, who's researching how smell operates in mice).
