ADVANCE Weekly Roundup: Shifting STEMM Away From Ableism

People with disabilities are drastically underrepresented in science, both as researchers and study participants. For example, over 25% of Americans are disabled but only 3% of the STEMM workforce reports having a disability. This needs to change, says Bonnielin Swenor, founder and director of the Johns Hopkins Disability Health Research Center, in a Q&A published by Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. Swenor, who has a visual disability and who advocates for researchers with disabilities, headed a subgroup for the National Institutes of Health (NIH) that resulted in nine recommendations for ways to increase equity, access, and inclusion across disability communities.

Swenor discussed the many ways that academic processes, such as article submission and grant funding portals, create barriers for disabled people such as the visually impaired. She also noted that, too often, the language we use, such as that found in the NIH mission statement, focuses on “reducing disability,” which is not disability-inclusive and serves to devalue those who are disabled. Instead, her report exhorts the NIH and other research institutions to engage with diverse disability communities, counter structural discrimination and promote awareness and inclusion.

Today’s feature was shared with the ADVANCE PI Team via a forward from a campus community member. If you have an article you think we should feature, please email it to and we will consider adding it to the ADVANCE Weekly Roundup.

The ADVANCE Weekly Roundup is brought to you by ADVANCE at Michigan Tech, an NSF-funded initiative dedicated to improving faculty career success, retention, diversity, equity and inclusion. Past articles are available on the ADVANCE Newsblog.

National Geographic Live: 'Adaptation'

National Geographic Live, National Geographic’s touring speaker series ​​that brings to life the awe-inspiring stories of National Geographic Explorers, and the Rozsa Center for the Performing Arts are proud to present the speaker event “Adaptation,” with environmental anthropologist and filmmaker Alizé Carrère.

The free event will take place at 7:30 Monday (March 20) at the Rozsa Center for the Performing Arts. Get your free tickets online or at the Rozsa Box Office from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Monday through Friday or in the hour before the event.

This 70-minute speaker event explores the remarkable ways people around the world are adapting to our changing planet. Dive into the South Pacific waters of Vanuatu, where islanders are using innovative techniques to combat outbreaks of crown-of-thorns starfish that threaten the surrounding reefs. In Bangladesh, discover how farmers in low-lying areas are reviving an old agricultural technique — floating gardens — that has inspired other floating infrastructure, including schools, libraries, hospitals and playgrounds. And travel to the mountainous desert of Ladakh in northern India to glimpse giant ice pyramids, or “ice stupas,” invented by a Ladakhi teacher and engineer to help the community preserve its scarce freshwater resources. Through her work documenting these stories, Carrère offers a hopeful look at the resilience, perseverance and innovation of humankind under even the most difficult of conditions.

Carrère is a National Geographic Explorer, filmmaker and Ph.D. candidate researching and documenting human adaptations to environmental change. In 2013, Carrère received support from National Geographic to conduct research in Madagascar, where she spent several months uncovering an unlikely agricultural adaptation in response to severe deforestation. Learning of farmers who were turning erosional gullies into fertile pockets of farmland, her work evolved into a broader film and educational project on human resilience. She brings her social science background and extensive field experience to her filmmaking, with the goal of elevating the human dimensions of climate change. Carrère received both her B.A. and M.S. from McGill University. She is currently pursuing her Ph.D. at the University of Miami, where she is examining the relationship between architecture, climate change and ecological urban utopias.

This program/lecture is locally supported by the Michigan Arts and Culture Council, the National Endowment for the Arts and the Van Evera Distinguished Lecture Series.

Greg Odegard to Receive NASA Outstanding Public Leadership Medal

Professor Greg Odegard (ME-EM) is the director of the Ultra-Strong Composites by Computational Design (US-COMP) NASA Space Technology Research Institute (STRI), one of the inaugural STRIs funded by the agency's Space Technology Mission Directorate. He's been selected to receive a NASA Outstanding Public Leadership Medal, awarded to nongovernment employees for "notable leadership accomplishments that have significantly influenced the NASA Mission."

The five-year US-COMP collaboration brings together 22 professors from 11 universities and two industry partners with a range of expertise in molecular modeling, manufacturing, material synthesis and testing. Odegard's nomination letter outlines how he harnessed the group's talents to successfully overcome challenges and make significant progress:

"Dr. Odegard leads by example, exhibiting the NASA core values for safety, integrity, teamwork, excellence and inclusion. He respected the constraints imposed by safety measures taken to protect students during COVID, while finding ways to continue making progress. He embraced the challenges of working with industry, where open sharing of information is tempered by the need to maintain their competitive edge. He walked the fine balance of demonstrating investment payoff for the funder through publications, while respecting intellectual property concerns by the industry members. Dr. Odegard’s openness to change to more effectively serve NASA’s mission needs is exceptional. He led with the courage and humility of leaders who leave an indelible legacy because they are different. His service to the Agency and to the nation deserves recognition."

Jenn Gustetic, director of NASA Early Stage Innovations and Partnerships, told Odegard the medal is well deserved. “Leading extensive and complex transdisciplinary research across numerous partners is no small feat — and you did so to great effect,” Gustetic said. “I am delighted that the Agency is recognizing your individual leadership contribution in this way, as institutes do not come together well without exceptional leadership."

Odegard will receive the medal at a ceremony held in Washington, D.C., on April 26. The US-COMP team will also be recognized by the agency as a whole for their contributions.

Please join us in congratulating Professor Odegard on this important recognition and achievement.

Luke Bowman Selected for Deans’ Teaching Showcase

College of Engineering Dean Janet Callahan has selected Luke Bowman from the Department of Geological and Mining Engineering and Sciences (GMES) as the featured instructor this week in the Deans’ Teaching Showcase.

Bowman will be recognized at an end-of-term luncheon with other spring showcase members and is a candidate for the next CTL Instructional Award Series.

Bowman was selected for his instruction in GE5260 Scientific Communication. The course enhances graduate students’ oral and written communication skills to help them write scientific proposals, present research at conferences and publish their findings in peer-reviewed literature. It also helps in completing their thesis or dissertation. In the course, students develop a research proposal they are encouraged to submit to the National Science Foundation, Michigan Space Grant Consortium (MSGC) and other agencies. Students conduct a literature review, articulate a research question, engage with their faculty research advisor, and provide and receive feedback. Students also interact with guest speakers who are experts in the field of communicating science to varied audiences. They learn how to effectively talk about their research from engaging professionals whose job it is to make an impactful argument.

“The Scientific Communication course has been an ultimate success story,” said Aleksey Smirnov, GMES department chair. “GMES students have had very high success rates with their MSGC grant submissions.”

“Luke is an amazingly dedicated teacher and effective mentor, who keeps providing instrumental contributions to the advancement of the department’s educational mission, especially in the areas of student recruitment and graduate education,” added Smirnov.

Bowman has co-taught the course with Ph.D. candidate Beth Bartel, who was its teaching assistant the prior two years when the course was taught by Professor John Gierke (GMES). While Bowman leaned on the content and activities developed during prior years, each year the course evolves, drawing from the instructors’ personal experience. Bowman and Bartel were able to efficiently weave in topics close to their research interests in geological hazard communication.

“Luke’s dedication to student success is inspiring and a reason why I chose to attend Michigan Tech,” said Ph.D. student Jacob Murchek. “He and Beth always worked together to provide support and guidance not only in their scientific communication course but in any aspect you would need.”

“Luke has been an extremely important part of my success during my graduate studies,” added M.S. student Emilie Prey. “Not only did he help me successfully navigate writing for the MSGC in Scientific Communication, he has been introducing me to opportunities unique to this department. He is always there to offer support for absolutely anything related to graduate school.”

“Innovative teaching that has students writing and presenting in their discipline is one of the things that make our graduates so successful,” said Callahan. “Luke's dedication to students and their success exemplifies how Michigan Tech gives students such a high return on their investment.”

ADVANCE Advocates and Allies Workshops

Have you noticed that different people have vastly different experiences in classes, meetings, informal and formal events, and other interactions on campus? Ever noticed that this is dependent upon visually identifiable characteristics (gender, skin color, etc.)? Would you like to learn more about becoming an ally in the moment and to help intentionally craft the culture at Michigan Tech to position every single individual for success (not just those who fit the "historically typical" mold)?

The ADVANCE Initiative Program is proud to present two workshops, with one goal: “Stand together in the quest for gender and racial equity.”

The first workshop, to be held March 31, is for first-time attendees or for those who wish to refresh their understanding on inclusion. The second workshop will be held April 28 for returning attendees who want to deep-dive into strategies for creating an inclusive climate. You are invited to attend one of two sessions in each workshop, held concurrently, to explore the impact of gender and race on faculty members’ experiences of the University campus climate. Through a review of the existing research and group discussions, these sessions will seek to shift the dialogue from individual problems and solutions experienced by underrepresented faculty to seeking to acknowledge and identify institutional challenges and solutions related to gender and racial inequity in higher education.

If you'd simply like to learn more about these issues in a collegial environment, please attend. If you would like to learn strategies to be an ally, attend and bring a friend! You are welcome to participate in both workshops. 

This workshop will be led by Michigan Tech's own Advocate Team members (cisgender-men-only session) and by ADVANCE's PI team/Advocates and Allies Advisory Board members (women and other genders session). Details on Advocates and Allies are available on the ADVANCE webpage.

Lunch will be served at this workshop, so please RSVP in advance.


  • Workshop 1 — ADVANCE Advocates and Allies Introductory Workshop
    • When: Friday, March 31, from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.
    • Where: MUB Alumni Lounge
    • Who: This workshop is intended for faculty and staff who have not attended an ADVANCE Advocates and Allies Workshop in the past.

New Funding

Roger Guillory (BioMed/IMP) is the principal investigator on a project that has received a $469,500 research and development grant from the National Institutes of Health.

The project is titled "Deciphering the relationship between bioresorbable magnesium alloy corrosion and the inflammatory microenvironment of the neotinima."

This is a potential three-year project.

In Print

Graduate student Chathura de Alwis (chemistry) and Assistant Professor Kathryn A. Perrine (Chem) are co-authors of a paper published in Surface Science.

The paper, titled "Dechlorination of CDCl3 on Fe(111): Implications for disinfection by-product degradation," was published online Feb. 24.

The study finds that iron surface sites on single crystal Fe(111) catalyzes the dechlorination of chloroform, a model disinfection by-product (DBP), at the gas/solid interface using vibrational spectroscopy. These results uncover the surface reaction of DBP degradation, relevant for water quality and environmental chemical processes.

This research was supported by the Michigan Tech 2020 Research Excellence Fund. de Alwis was also supported by the 2021 Robert and Kathleen Lane Outstanding Graduate Student Research Award.
