Faculty in the Media



That's the NOVA special from Wednesday, October 9, on the Aftermath of Megastorms, featuring our own J. Marshall Shepherd among its panel of experts. President of the American Meteorological Society and director of the UGA atmospheric sciences program, Marshall is a regular source for the news media on everything from climate change to aging weather satellites.

Earlier in the same week, Marshall was on Atlanta's WSB discussing how critical weather information may be compromised during the government shutdown.

Shepherd was also quoted in an NPR story on the shutdown's lasting impac ton American science.

Associate professor of history Stephen Mihm continues his regular columns on with an assessment of Tea Party tactics.

The statue of Thomas Edward Watson, a controversial Georgia political figure from the past, is scheduled to be moved from the grounds of the state Capitol next month, reports the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.  “If the statue is left to imply without qualification that Watson was a heroic or a wholly admirable figure, then it becomes both offensive and a distortion of history,” said UGA history professor James Cobb

Assistant professor in the department of genetics Melissa Davis is quoted in an Athens Banner Herald article on family history and genetics as indicators of women's chances to develop breast cancer.
