Third UAB student named Rhodes scholar Ameen Barghi is one of just 32 Rhodes scholars across the U.S., and he is UAB’s third Rhodes winner since 2000.
He began his work at UAB as a hospital volunteer in 10th grade, and then joined the lab of Edward Taub, Ph.D., a world-renowned behavioral neuroscientist.
He is an honors student and double-major in the Undergraduate Neuroscience Program and a self-designed major in translational research.
A new show celebrating the work of graduating students in UAB’s Bachelor of Fine Arts program offers unique perspectives on human consciousness. Rob Clifton, Alejandra Garbutt and Nathan Truitt capture cognition through mixed-media installations, graphic design and narrative sculptures. The exhibition “is a highlight of the BFA undergraduate career as it demonstrates and celebrates our students’ accomplishments,” said Lauren Lake, MFA, chair of the Department of Art and Art History. The show runs Dec. 1-13 at the Abroms-Engel Institute for the Visual Arts.
