2015 Projects



In B term 2015, Professor Dominic Golding and Professor Reinhold Ludwig advised seven student teams conducting projects with Housing Nantucket, the Nantucket Energy Office, the Nantucket Emergency Management Agency,  the Nantucket Planning Office, the Nantucket Department of Public Works, the Nantucket Chamber of Commerce, and the Nantucket Town Manager’s Office.

We would like to thank all our project sponsors for making these collaborative research opportunities available to our students. We would also like to thank the following:

  • Harvey Young of Young’s Bicycle Shop for generously providing the advisors and students with bicycles for the duration of their stay.
  • David Gagnon and his staff at the Maria Mitchell Association for providing student accommodation.
  • Melissa Philbrick, Rachel Hobart, and Virna Gonzalez and ReMain Nantucket for allowing us to use the Greenhound Building for student workspace and for underwriting the Nantucket treasure hunt.
  • Melanie Hajjar for hosting the treasure hunt.
  • Lisa Lazarus and Dick Mack for providing us with a special tour of the Shipwreck and Lifesaving Museum.
  • Marjan Shirzad and the Nantucket Historical Association for providing us with passes to the Whaling Museum.
