First Friday Lunch - September 2017

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.

Newark waterOn Friday, September 8th, 2017, we will be joined by Kessie Alexandre.  Kessie is a PhD candidate whose research is concerned with water contamination and environmental exposure resulting from aging and failing infrastructures in the United States. In her fieldwork, she explores how inadequate water systems are locally experienced and follows various efforts to address these water issues through a combination of technoscience, environmentalism, and community engagement in Newark. Broadly, she is interested in what can be gleaned about embodied exposure, social justice work, and political imaginaries of public works and public space from the current state of American water infrastructures and its confluences with social movements. Prior to coming to Princeton, she received a B.A. in Public Health Studies and Anthropology from Johns Hopkins University.

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


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.

Alexander KustovOn Friday, May 5th, 2017, we will be joined Alexander Kustov, PhD candidate in the Politics Department and at the Woodrow Wilson School.  Alex will present his talk "Why do - and don't - compassionate voters support immigration? The altruists' dilemma of helping others and favoring compatriots."  Despite being harmful to the poor, immigration restrictions are popular in rich democracies.  This opposition is puzzling if one considers the importance of altruistic motivations in political behavior.  Why do otherwise prosocial voters resist immigration which can be made to benefit everyone?  Departing from the original observational and experimental US data, Alex demonstrates that - depending on whether they view their compatriots as more deserving than foreigners - highly altruistic people can either be the most or the least anti-immigrant group

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

First Friday Lunch - April 2017

Pawel PrzytyckiOn Friday, April 7th, 2017, we will be joined Pawel Przytycki, a PhD candidate in Computer Science.  Pawel will discuss his work on differential analysis between germline variation and somatic mutation. The decreasing cost of sequencing human genomes has allowed for thousands of both healthy individuals and tumor samples to be sequenced. With this massive increase in data it is possible to observe the minute differences between the genomes of healthy individuals (germline variation) and also how tumor samples accumulate mutations over the course of a person's life (somatic mutation). Pawel's research has found that a large amount of germline variation in a gene can be indicative of that gene's ability to accumulate somatic mutations without detrimental health effects. This in turn will help us better understand which genes play important roles in the development and growth of cancers

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