Faculty Spotlight

Does seeing images of Taylor Swift actually affect people’s feelings about the NFL? Psychology professor Steven Fein and students in his Experimentation and Statistics class conducted research to try to answer this question, as well as to identify which kinds of people are the most negatively affected by her appearances.

Student Spotlight

Hikaru Hayakawa ’24 is vice president and deputy executive director of Climate Cardinals, a nonprofit that makes scientific literature more accessible to non-English speakersand which recently became one of the first-ever youth-led organizations supported by Google’s philanthropic arm, Google.org. Hikarua says he hopes the recognition “encourages others to redirect more resources towards empowering the next generation of environmental leaders.”

With summer right around the corner, many current students will dedicate the next couple of months to conducting research across a variety of fields and disciplines. Becky Walker ‘27 shares about getting involved in research early in her Williams career:

“I work with Professor Godlonton on the Ungated Research Project, which provides access to all publicly available working papers for research published in leading economic journals in one location along with AI-generated non-technical summaries of the findings of these papers. After taking a class with Professor Godlonton in the fall, I was incredibly inspired by her and interested in pursuing more opportunities in economics, inside and outside of the classroom. I got involved with the project this semester after applying to do research this summer with the Economics department and she emailed me to see if I wanted to join a group of students already working on the project during the spring semester. Despite my limited economic background, I am incredibly grateful to be able to engage in this very meaningful work.”
