First Friday Lunch - September 2018

Join us for First Fridays, a monthly recurring event for undergraduate and graduate Princeton alumni, graduate students, and parents.  On the first Friday of each month, area alumni and their guests will meet to enjoy a prix fixe luncheon at the Nassau Club in downtown Princeton.  As a special bonus for PA3, a Princeton University PhD candidate will present his/her work to the group in this informal setting.  Topics vary monthly and are always interesting!  

Have a look at our impressive roster of previous luncheons


Mai Nguyen, PhD candidate in Psychology, will be the guest speaker.  How do we represent complex information in the brain over time and how do individual differences in understanding or behavior affect these neural representations? To answer these questions, Mai uses neuroimaging methods (fMRI) to measure brain activity while people are engaged in tasks such as watching movies, listening to stories, or even interacting with others. Her work generally shows that shared understanding is reflected in shared neural responses. 

Please join us.  As always, there is sure to be a lively discussion!


Specially priced at $25/person (or $30 if you choose not to pay PA3's annual dues).

Lunch includes three courses, a complementary soft drink and coffee/tea.  Wine/beer offered a la carte.

Pre-registration is preferred.

>> Looking forward to seeing you...in your orange and black! <<

First Friday Lunch - March 2018

Join us for First Fridays, a monthly recurring event for undergraduate and graduate Princeton alumni, graduate students, and parents.  On the first Friday of each month, area alumni and their guests will meet to enjoy a prix fixe luncheon at the Nassau Club in downtown Princeton.  As a special bonus for PA3, a Princeton University PhD candidate will present his/her work to the group in this informal setting.  Topics vary monthly and are always interesting!  Have a look at our impressive roster of previous luncheons
 

Mayank Misra is a PhD candidate at the Woodrow Wilson School and the Levin Lab in the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology.  Mayank was formerly a civil rights lawyer in the High Courts of Delhi and Bombay, and the Supreme Court of India. He completed a masters in Public Administration from the Woodrow Wilson School in 2014, was a fellow at the New York Public Library, and consulted for the Open Society foundations, before returning to Princeton as a PhD student.

Mayank's research as an ecologist, focuses on the evolution of modularity in socio-ecological systems - or how human beings organize to endure in the face of shifting fortunes.

Axelrod and Hamilton suggested that every resource available to an individual is more readily available to cooperating individuals; and we see cooperation all around us. From the cells within our bodies, to near immortal ant colonies, lichen supra-organisms, and ecosystems arranged across scales in time and space, the story of life is one of cooperation writ large. 

In his talk Mayank will discuss socio-ecological systems in general, and his study system in the Banni grasslands in India in particular, tying together how the colonially inspired planting of a tree may have led to people behaving (and dressing) differently.  

Please join us.  As always, there is sure to be a lively discussion!

Specially priced at $25/person (or $30 if you choose not to pay PA3's annual dues), lunch includes three courses, a complementary soft drink and coffee/tea. [**Wine/beer offered a la carte**]
