Bradley Samuels is one of four partners at Situ Studio in Brooklyn, New York. Situ Studio was founded in 2005 while its four partners were studying architecture at the Cooper Union.

Transitioning directly from school to opening an office, the classmates-turned-business-partners developed a model of practice that leveraged their collective interests in design, research and fabrication to create a studio uniquely equipped to explore a wide range of spatial issues.

Adam Maloof joined the Department of Geosciences at Princeton University as an assistant professor of geology in July 2006 and was promoted to associate professor with tenure in January 2012. Research in Maloof's Earth history group relies on original field observations, at the scale of maps, rock outcrops, and thin sections. The group's current focus involves using sedimentary and volcanic rocks to extract information about Earth's ancient magnetic field and the relative motion of continents, perturbations to the global carbon cycle, and the coevolution of life and climate.

About TEDx, x = independently organized event
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
