David Hawthorne, the Director of Education for SESYNC, is an Associate Professor in Entomology at the University of Maryland. Dave has contributed to research and regulatory efforts for the sustainable use of transgenic corn, and he studies insect speciation, particularly that driven by adaptation to different host plants. He teaches courses targeting both the most advanced graduate students and non-majors undergraduates. Dr. Hawthorne is a 2008 Lilly fellow, contributing to a study of the transfer student population on the UMD campus, and a member of the Marquee Courses in Science and Technology learning community—designing and delivering top science and technology courses to non-science majors . A 2009 National Academy of Sciences teaching fellow, David loves conveying the day-to-day relevance of science to non-majors and sharing the application of basic research to applied problems to graduate students. He received bachelors degrees from Kent State University in economics and biology, a masters degree in entomology from North Carolina State University and a Ph.D. from Cornell in insect genetics.
