Hunter Women Scientists in the News

Virginia Valian, Psychology and GEP, received the Betty Vetter Award for Research from The Women in Engineering Programs and Advocates Network (WEPAN). Valian was described as "a nationally recognized scholar, whose work on gender schemas has enormous theoretical and practical value. She is best known for her ability to articulate remedies for inequity in ways that are useful to those who suffer from inequity, as well as those responsible for eliminating it."

Margaret Chin, Sociology, was quoted on the nature of skilled immigrants in a May 8th, 2006 Wall Street Journal article on immigration by J. Millman. Chin states that so long as skilled immigrants (even the undocumented) can earn higher wages in the US than in their countries of origin-they will continue to come to the US.

Dana Draghicescu, Mathematics & Statistics, received a New Investigator Award from the American Statistical Association (ASA) to present a poster on space-time maps of risk for air pollution at the ASA conference on Radiation and Health, Monterey, CA, June 2006.
