David Rumschitzki is Professor of Chemical Engineering at the City College of New York, a member of the PhD programs in Chemistry and Biology at the Graduate School and University Center of the City University of New York and an Adjunct Research Scientist at Columbia Presbyterian Medical Center. He was a warded a Fulbright Senior Scholar for a project entitled, “Theory & experiment for breast cancer dormancy & recurrence” at the Rappaport Faculty of Medicine, Technion – Israel Institute of Technology in collaboration with Professor Yuval Shaked. David holds a PhD from the University of California at Berkeley in the College of Chemistry, Chemical Engineering Department. He has worked on reaction kinetics and used asymptotic analysis on interfacial stability problems. Recently he has turned his interests to problems in biology – theory and experiment, including early events in atherogenesis and more recently to a theory for how populations of tumors change in time and how tumors may reappear after long periods of apparent dormancy, with experiments on zebra¬fish melanoma. This project will test this theory on a well-known mouse breast cancer model.

Adriana Brodsky

Adriana Brodsky

St. Mary’s College of Maryland - Tel Aviv University

Adriana Brodsky is an Associate Professor of History at St. Mary’s College of Maryland. She was awarded a Fulbright Senior Scholar Fellowship to pursue her project “Navigating Multiple Diasporas: Argentine Sephardi Youth at Home and in Israel, 1948-1976” at Tel Aviv University. The project follows young Sephardim who lived in the Jewish and Sephardi diasporas, creating strong ties to Argentina and learning political lessons that they applied to their Zionist work. When they migrated to Israel, they struggled to adapt to the circumstances, continued to feel like Argentines, and became identified as Latin Americans. The study reveals a reality that speaks to the modern condition, and underscores the role of youth in reconfigurations of ethnic, diasporic, and national identities.

Adriana’s recent publications include:

Alex Kovner

Alex Kovner

University of Connecticut - Ben Gurion University of the Negev

Alex Kovner is a Professor of Physics at the University of Connecticut. He was awarded a Fulbright Fellowship to pursue his project “Quasi Collectivity in proton-proton collisions at high energy” at the Ben Gurion University. His research aims to understand specific properties of strong interactions in high energy collisions. In particular he is interested in the question whether strong correlations between produced particles observed at Large Hadron Collider can be understood in terms of properties of the wave function of the colliding protons. This would indicate an interesting quasi collective structure of a proton wave function when probed at high energies. He will be working in collaboration with the BGU researchers to answer this question.

Kalamazoo College - The University of Haifa

R. Amy Elman is Professor of Political Science at Kalamazoo College, Kalamazoo MI.  She was awarded a Fulbright Fellowship for her project “Contemporary Antisemitism, Anti-Zionism and the Politics of Pinkwashing” at Haifa University.  This project follows the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement’s efforts to discredit Israel’s adoption of progressive policies pertaining to lesbian and gay rights – efforts BDS insists serve as a smokescreen to conceal the human rights of Palestinians.  This perception has gained traction in the United States since 2010, when the concept of “pinkwashing” was first introduced by academics there.  What impact, if any, has BDS had within Israel on those committed to the adoption, maintenance and expansion of those rights?

Anya Jones

Anya Jones

University of Maryland - Technion

Anya Jones is an Associate Professor of Aerospace Engineering at the University of Maryland. She was awarded a Fulbright Fellowship to pursue her project “Flow Physics and Control of Dynamic Stall in an Unsteady Freestream” at the Technion. The long-term goal of her research program is to enhance aircraft safety and broaden the operational envelope of wings and other lifting surfaces by better understanding the fundamental physics of force production in unsteady and separated flows. She applies experimental, analytical, and theoretical methods to canonical problems relevant to a variety of applications including fixed and rotary wing aircraft, bio-inspired fliers and swimmers, and wind and tidal turbines. At the Technion, she will be applying tools from fundamental aerodynamics to develop new physics-based low order models of unsteady aerodynamic forcing during dynamic stall and in gusty winds. She will then use these models to inform new flow control algorithms that can be used to regularize unsteady airloads.

Anya’s recent publications include

Arizona State University - Bar Ilan University in Tel Aviv

Dr. Maria Adelaida Restrepo is a Professor of Speech and Hearing Science at Arizona State University. She was awarded a Fulbright Fellowship to pursue the project “The Effects of Response to Intervention in Language Minority Children in Israel”. Her research aims to understand how language minority children can benefit from a rich narrative language intervention and whether learning skills while receiving the language stimulation can help us differentiate children with significant learning disabilities from those with language differences. If so these programs can be implemented in preschools to help build language, at the same time they help us to better understand the learning capacity and needs of these children. Restrepo will be working at Bar Ilan University in Tel Aviv to adapt and implement this program in conjunction with Dr. Sharon Armon-Lotem.

Yasmine L. Kalkstein

Yasmine L. Kalkstein

Mount Saint Mary College - Ono Academic College

Yasmine L. Kalkstein is an Associate Professor of Psychology at Mount Saint Mary College in Newburgh, NY.  She was awarded a Fulbright Fellowship to pursue her project “Who Owns Birth? The Role of Birth Plans in the Birth Experience".   Her work explores the intersection of psychology, medicine, and mass communication.  Pregnancy and the birth experience is replete with medical decisions to be made; many women and their partners create birth plans to communicate their preferred decisions.  This is an implementation of the strong shared-decision-making movement in the medical world, where patients increasingly determine or participate in determining their own medical care.  Birth, however, offers a considerable amount of uncertainty, which means that the birth may not go according to the plan.  In her research, Yasmine and her Israeli collaborators at Ono Academic College will examine women’s experiences to relate birth plans to satisfaction with the medical system, perception of ownership over their own birth, and confidence and self-efficacy going into their second birth.

Yasmine’s recent related publications include:
