Professor Newman is a MacVicar Faculty Fellow, a Chair that recognizes faculty who have made exemplary and sustained contributions to the teaching and education of undergraduates at MIT.

My teaching and research mantra is: L-A-D-I. For Love, Act, Discover and Innovate. That’s my passion for science and exploration for all of my teaching and research: to love, act, discover, and innovate to attempt to leave Earth better off then how we find it today (EarthDNA.org).
