Warwick native turning heads with sunflower study
Growing up in Warwick, Blackman was very involved in the Jewish community, belonging to Temple Sinai in Cranston during his junior high and high school years. There, he volunteered as a student teacher, served as a leader in the temple’s youth group, and actively participated in NFTY Northeast, an organization that brings together young Jews to learn and grow, both as Jews and as individuals.
“Those were all great experiences for me when I was growing up,” Blackman said.
His love of science began in a course at Winman Junior High School. He was so intrigued by the biology class that he decided to pursue a program in the study of genetics the following summer. “Going forward, I always had an eye toward biology,” he said.
He went on to attend Toll Gate High School (Class of ’97), where his love for science only grew stronger.
“At Toll Gate, I took multiple years of biology, chemistry, physics, and calculus, and I also participated in several competitive academic extracurricular activities. During this time, my excitement about science grew as I benefited from the dedication and encouragement of many teachers and coaches,” he said.
Following high school, Blackman headed west to Stanford University, where he earned an undergraduate degree in Biological Sciences (Class of ’01).
From 2001 to 2003, he was a technician in the lab of David Kingsley at Stanford. During this time he contributed to studies of the skeletal evolution of stickleback fish, a small, unique fish that evolves and mutates quickly when traveling between saltwater and freshwater. He then entered graduate school, earning his Ph.D. in Evolutionary Biology and Ecology from Indiana University, Bloomington, in 2009.
After graduating, Blackman was a post-doctoral scholar at Duke University, where he studied how populations of the common monkey flower adapt to local habitats.
Blackman accepted a teaching position at UVA in August of 2012. He taught Ecology of Evolution and Development and a graduate seminar titled “Speciation” at the university until December of 2015.
From UVA, Blackman moved back west, to the San Francisco area, to start a new position, which he currently holds, as an associate professor of the Evolutionary Process at the University of California, Berkeley.
Blackman attributes much of his success to his mentors along his scientific journey, from the junior high school teacher who sparked his interest in biology to those he met during his college and graduate school years.
Blackman says being Jewish also played a role in his success. “One of the major lessons that I took away from my Jewish education in Rhode Island was that part of being Jewish is studying, questioning and explaining, and I think, in part, this influenced me and how I went into science. That is what I do every day. I always want to learn more and am constantly asking questions.”
SAM SERBY, of East Greenwich, attended Temple Sinai, in Cranston. He is a recent graduate of Johnson & Wales University.
