After our art director spotted a dramatic photo taken by Ned Dishman last year at Virginia Tech, the photographer agreed to make a return visit to the campus to illustrate Mary Lord’s cover story, “Grief, Grit and Grace,” on the engineering college’s recovery. Dishman, a freelancer based in Washington D.C., has covered a variety of news and athletic events and features. His pictures have appeared in Sports Illustrated, ESPN Magazine, The New York Times, The Houston Chronicle and Sporting News. He has also shot photos for the National Basketball Association, Nike and several universities.
Corinna Wu, who wrote “A More Tempting Science,” our Teaching Toolbox article describing how Duke University tailors Physics for its engineering students, is a freelance writer based in Oakland, Calif., who specializes in scientific subjects. Her February article, “The Sky’s the Limit,” reported on the controversial work of scientists who think climate change can actually be reversed. Corinna, who has degrees in chemistry and materials science and engineering, was an editor of Prism and of ASEE’s Engineering, Go For It! before moving to California.
Thomas K. Grose is one of Prism’s most frequent contributors. This month, he wrote “Beyond the Blueprint,” about the joint effort by Boeing, Dassault Systèmes and Georgia Tech to educate software-savvy engineers, as well as “Not Now, Voyager,” describing the falling dollar’s impact on higher education. Tom’s work also appears regularly in our Briefings section. He has written for US News and World Report and the European edition of Time. A native of Detroit who spent many years in Washington, D.C., Tom now lives 90 miles outside of London, where he watches in amazement as sons Christian and Dominic become British schoolboys.
