Congratulations to Fulbright Recipient Alison Hartman

We are pleased to announce and congratulate Alison Hartman on her award of a Fulbright scholarship to Israel.

Alison Hartman has been awarded a Fulbright Scholar award to complete post-doctoral research in Eilat, Israel.  Alison will work with Dr. Adi Torfstein (a Lamont Adjunct Associate Research Scientist and lecturer at the IUI in association with The Hebrew University of Jerusalem). In addition, Alison has also been awarded a prestigious competitive post-doc fellowship from the Inter-university Institute for Marine Sciences (IUI). 

The Fulbright U.S. Student Program is the largest U.S. exchange program offering opportunities for students and young professionals to undertake international graduate study, advanced research, university teaching, and primary and secondary school teaching worldwide.
The Fulbright Program is designed to "increase mutual understanding between the people of the United States and the people of other countries" and encourages collaboration in developing ideas and addressing international concerns. Fellowships are awarded to American students, young professionals, and artists selected through a national, open, merit-based competition for study, research, internships, and/or service abroad. With a broad academic focus including the social sciences, humanities, and the sciences, the program emphasizes leadership development.
Alison currently works with Professor Steve Goldstein and focuses on the use of neodymium isotopes in paleoceanography and chemical oceanography. Her future research will continue to investigate biogeochemical cycles in the ocean and the use of Nd isotopes as a water mass tracer by studying the rare earth element composition of seawater in the Gulf of Aqaba and the Red Sea. 
As a Fulbright grantee, Alison will join the ranks of distinguished participants in the Program. Fulbright alumni have become heads of state, judges, ambassadors, cabinet ministers, CEOs, university presidents, journalists, artists, professors and teachers. They have been awarded 43 Nobel Prizes. Since its inception more than 60 years ago, approximately 300,000 Fulbrighters have participated in the Program.
Congratulations Alison!
