MEDIA ALERT: Experts available on coronavirus
Cornell faculty members can speak about coronavirus from a variety of perspectives: the science and health implications of the disease, its impact on the global economy, the science of vaccines and impact on healthcare systems, labor and specialized industries, effects on countries around the world and the broader impact the crisis is having on our daily lives.
Cornell Media Relations Office is the university's representative to local, regional, national and international media organizations. Part of University Relations, Media Relations works across the university to connect faculty experts and thought leaders with print, broadcast and digital media.

EXPERT QUOTES
“If the omicron variant proves more contagious, more likely to lead to severe illness, or more resistant to current vaccines, I would expect that many employers will extend the timeline on their return to the office plans. They may also be more likely to restrict access to the office for those who have started to come back in, particularly if they are confident in their ability to maintain operations with a fully or largely remote workforce.”
Bradford S. Bell
Professor in strategic human resources and director of ILR’s Center for Advanced Human Resource Studies

Britney Schmidt, associate professor (A&S, ENG) is in Antarctica through February 2022 with a small team of researchers to explore the confluence of glaciers, floating ice shelves and ocean using a submarine robot called Icefin – the first mission of its kind. But the whole time, she’ll also be thinking about worlds beyond Earth. The members of her Planetary Habitability and Technology lab, which is transitioning with Schmidt from Georgia Tech to Cornell, are working to better understand how oceans work both on Earth and beyond, and to develop tools for further exploration. Read the article in the Cornell Chronicle.
