­­In February, the Board of Managers approved the promotion of six faculty members from associate to full professorship: Allison Dorsey, a historian specializing in African American history, African American women, American history, and the history of food. Philip Everson, a statistician whose research data include football, basketball, and baseball results; María Luisa Guardiola, a Hispanist who specializes in 19th- and 20th-century Spanish literature; Kathleen Howard, a chemist/biochemist whose research focuses on the use of magnetic resonance spectroscopy to investigate membrane-bound molecules; Aimee Johnson, a mathematician who researches dynamical systems that arose in the study of systems of differential equations and were used to model physical phenomena; and psychologist Andrew Ward, whose research interests include self-regulation and control, negotiation and conflict resolution, and social perception.
