Rachel Carson College Faculty Fellows

Sikina Jinnah

Sikina Jinnah is Rachel Carson College's new faculty chair!

The Chair of the Faculty is an Academic Senate member, other than the Provost, who is elected by the college Faculty to serve a two year term, and will serve as a member of the Executive Committee.

Dr. Jinnah is an Associate Professor in the Politics Department, an affiliated faculty member in the Environmental Studies Department, and a 2017 Andrew Carnegie Fellow. Her research focuses on the shifting locations of power and influence in global environmental governance, and in particular the role of transnational actors in environmental decision-making. Her most recent projects examine how key norms in global climate politics shape power relations, the role of U.S. preferential trade agreements in shaping environmental policy in trading partner nations, and the politics of climate engineering governance.

Research Interests

Marty Weissman's research involves the interaction between representation theory, geometry, and number theory. Specifically, he works on automorphic forms and representations, and what is generally known as the Langlands program. Within the Langlands program, he is interested in modular forms on exceptional and metaplectic groups, representations of p-adic groups, and L-functions.

Teaching Interests

I enjoy teaching a broad swath of courses, including number theory, abstract algebra, proof-writing, "big science", quantitative literacy, and the history of mathematics.
