In February, we saw the second of two Beanpot wins in as many years, ambitious projects by students come to life, boats built in a centuries-old workshop, and more. Relive February through the lenses of Matthew Modoono and Adam Glanzman. Northeastern’s award-winning photographers.

This month, Ken Henderson was named Chancellor at Northeastern, a position in which he’ll oversee undergraduate and experiential learning, student affairs, enrollment management, digital and mobile learning, lifelong learning across the university’s globally integrated system of campuses, and the university’s PhD Network. Henderson is pictured here on Feb. 8, 2019, just days before taking on his new role. Photo by Matthew Modoono/Northeastern University

Whether they’re conducting research in Antarctica, working at a supply chain company in China, attending a lecture on the internet of things at Northeastern’s Seattle campus, or leading the Huskies to victory in a game in Boston, Northeastern students never stop learning through experience. And now students can track it all through a platform called SAIL. Colin Mullaney, Erykah Kangbeya, and Miracle Olatunji, pictured here, are students on the advisory board of SAIL.

By now, internet users realize that they are being tracked online. But what many don’t realize is that every click they make contains information that is sold to advertisers, who wage real-time bidding wars for users’ attention. Ahmad Bashir, pictured here, wanted to fix that. He developed a new technique to discover the extent to which personal data gets shared with online advertising companies.
