40 Years of Evolution. Darwin's Finches on Daphne Major Island
Dr. Peter R. Grant and Dr. Rosemary Grant will present the 2019  Ehrlich-Mooney Lecture in Ecology and Evolution. This annual lecture series was established by the Department of Biology to honor the seminal work of Professors Paul Ehrlich and Harold Mooney in population biology.

Legendary evolutionary biologists Peter and Rosemary Grant will discuss their four decades of work studying Darwin’s finches on the Galápagos Island of Daphne Major, as chronicled in the Pulitzer Prize-winning book The Beak of the Finch: A Story of Evolution in Our Time.  Their painstaking work over the course of four decades has revealed that evolutionary changes can occur far faster than was ever thought possible and that evolution is a far more dynamic process than Darwin imagined. They have provided the most complete account of how evolution works in nature, elucidating the mechanisms by which genetic diversity is maintained and through which new species originate. Read more.

LaunchDarkly CEO and co-founder Edith Harbaugh @ ETL

“I started off in engineering, was frustrated that smart people kept building products no one wanted, so became a product manager to build what people wanted,” says LaunchDarkly CEO and co-founder Edith Harbaugh in an interview published last year on Medium. “I then saw that you could build the right thing, but if no one knew about it, it didn’t exist. So I also got into marketing.”

An outgrowth of Harbaugh’s passion for customer-centered product design, LaunchDarkly is a platform that helps software teams release code, monitor and manage features, and make data-driven decisions about functionality. The company has gained over 700 customers, from BMW to IBM and FuboTV, and in March raised a $44 million Series C round led by Bessemer Venture Partners.

In addition to running LaunchDarkly, Harbaugh is the host of To Be Continuous, a podcast aimed at the software development community.

This appearance by Edith Harbaugh is part of the Entrepreneurial Thought Leaders series. Join us live as we bring founders, investors and industry influencers to center stage and invite them to share what it takes to become a disruptor. Read more.

Seeing the World from Above: An Evening with Aerial Photographer George Steinmetz

For more than thirty years, George Steinmetz has been flying through the air like a bird, capturing breathtaking photographs of remote deserts, obscure cultures, and the mysteries of science and technology. His powerful work has been featured in The New York Times and in more than forty National Geographic photo essays. With a restless curiosity for the unknown, he has explored subjects ranging from the remotest stretches of Saudi Arabia’s Empty Quarter (Rub’ al Khali desert) to the virtually unknown tree people of Irian Jaya in Indonesia. His expeditions to the Sahara and Gobi deserts have been featured in separate National Geographic Explorer TV programs. In 2006, he received a grant from the National Science Foundation to document the work of scientists in the Dry Valleys and volcanoes of Antarctica.  Read more.

Center for Population Health Sciences | Seminar Series: Josh Apte

Air pollution is one of the leading risk factors for premature death, associated with more than 7% of all human deaths worldwide. Here, I present three interlinked analyses that help frame the urban air pollution problem at the global and local scales. First, using an unusually detailed satellite remote sensing dataset, I show how fine particle (PM2.5) air pollution levels have evolved over the past two decades in every city in the world. Second, I present the case study of New Delhi, India — the world’s most polluted megacity — where we are using chemical fingerprinting techniques to understand the drivers of the city’s extremely poor air quality. Third, using Google Street View cars and other specially equipped mobile air pollution laboratories, we show how air pollution varies at fine spatial scales within individual neighborhoods in the Bay Area and Bangalore, India, revealing unexpected pollution sources and exposure disparities. In combination, these analyses highlight how a portfolio of solutions will be required to address the major health challenges of air pollution at scale.
