Lydia S. Dugdale, MD
Lydia Dugdale, MD, MAR (ethics), is the Dorothy L. and Daniel H. Silberberg Associate Professor of Medicine at Columbia University Vagelos College of Physicians and Surgeons and Director of the Center for Clinical Medical Ethics. She also serves as Associate Director of Clinical Ethics at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Columbia University Irving Medical Center.
A practicing internist, Dugdale moved to Columbia in 2019 from Yale University, where she previously served as Associate Director of the Program for Biomedical Ethics. Her scholarship focuses on end-of-life issues, medical ethics, and the doctor-patient relationship. She edited Dying in the Twenty-First Century (MIT Press, 2015) and is author of The Lost Art of Dying (HarperOne, 2020), a popular press book on the preparation for death.
Jennifer A. Frey
Professor Frey earned a B.A. in philosophy and medieval studies (with a classics minor) at Indiana University, in Bloomington, Indiana. She earned her PhD in philosophy from the University of Pittsburgh. Prior to teaching at University of South Carolina, she was a junior fellow in the Society of the Liberal Arts at the University of Chicago and Collegiate Assistant Professor of the Humanities.
Prof. Gurney earned a B.A. and Ph.D. at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. He enjoys teaching a wide and eclectic range of literature courses at University of North Carolina, Asheville. He is especially interested in teaching students how to study premodern literature with careful and joyful attention, and in discovering with students how these older literary forms and traditions become renewed, reformed, and reinvigorated in the work of contemporary writers. In his classes he typically does one or the other, and often both.
His scholarship focuses on the literature and culture of early modern England. Love’s Quarrels: Reading Charity in Early Modern England (University of Massachusetts Press, 2018) examines a central irony of sixteenth- and seventeenth-century England: how charity, which was supposed to be the “sweet cement” binding the community together, in fact motivated and intensified many of the era’s most contentious disputes. Currently he is working on a second project that investigates the presence of vagrancy and roguery in early modern English literature. Additional scholarly and teaching interests include contemporary poetry and Appalachian literature.
Alexander J. Hartemink
Prof. Alexander J. Hartemink is a Professor of Computer Science and Biology at Duke University . He is the faculty director of the Office of University Scholars and Fellows, previously directed the Graduate Program in Computational Biology and Bioinformatics, and is an active member of the Center for Genomic and Computational Biology and the Center for Advanced Genomic Technologies. He has been at Duke since September 2001, when he received my Ph.D. from the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology under the supervision of David Gifford, Tommi Jaakkola, and Rick Young.
His research interest is the development of new algorithms in statistical machine learning and artificial intelligence, and on the application of those methods to complex problems in computational genomics. Specific application areas include regulatory genomics and systems biology, although he is also interested in other domains. Current high-level projects include:
- discovering principles and mapping networks of transcriptional regulation,
- understanding the role of chromatin organization in enacting this regulation, and
- revealing the mechanisms that control dynamic cellular processes, like the eukaryotic cell cycle.
Andrea N. Leep Hunderfund
Andrea N. Leep Hunderfund, M.D., MHPE, conducts research in medical education. She studies the relationship between learning environment factors and important educational outcomes related to high-value care, professionalism and well-being. Her research seeks to better understand how educational systems can better support the development and expression of caring, character and skills that are aligned with societal needs.
Dr. Leep Hunderfund is working to develop robust programs for the assessment and continuous improvement of clinical learning environments in undergraduate and graduate medical education. Her ongoing research aims to identify faculty behaviors and programmatic factors associated with high-value care, learner well-being, professionalism and physician professional development. Dr. Leep Hunderfund’s research explores the attitudes, experiences and behaviors of medical students toward high-value care and relationships with regional practice patterns. She also contributes to studies examining associations between burnout and professionalism, and develops and evaluates educational assessments to ensure they provide valid results.
Dr. Leep Hunderfund’s research aims to support leaders, clinical teams and students in co-creating environments that reflect professional values, facilitate learning and promote healing.
Professor Paul C.H. Lim is an award-winning historian of Reformation- and post-Reformation Europe. His latest book, Mystery Unveiled: The Crisis of the Trinity in Early Modern England (Oxford, 2012), won the 2013 Roland H. Bainton Prize as the best book in history/theology by the Sixteenth Century Society and Conference. He has published two other books in that area: The Cambridge Companion to Puritanism (Cambridge, 2008); and In Pursuit of Purity, Unity, and Liberty: Richard Baxter’s Puritan Ecclesiology in Context (Brill, 2004).
In addition, history of evangelicalism and global Christianities are his other foci of research. Currently, he is writing a book on the transformation of global evangelical attitudes toward and endeavors on eradication of human trafficking and structural poverty.
Professor Lim welcomes inquiries from students interested in graduate studies in: (1) history of theology and intellectual history of the Long Reformation period; (2) global Christianity and changing trajectories of evangelical theology and praxis; (3) early modern English history, particularly religion and politics.
His research has been funded by fellowships and grants from the Luce Foundation (Luce Fellowship in Theology, 2011-12); the Folger Shakespeare Library; the Yale Center for Faith & Culture; the Vanderbilt University Research Scholars Grant.
He has delivered papers and lectures at Oxford, Cambridge, London, St. Andrews, Rotterdam, Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Penn, and Pomona College, as well in Sri Lanka, India, Cambodia, Switzerland, France, Ethiopia, Kenya, China, Japan, and South Korea.
