  • A figure image of nanofibrils.
    In Nature Reviews, researchers from Tufts and MIT studied strategies for recreating natural nanofibril architectures in the designs of other materials. 
  • A robot hand and a white person's hand reach towards each other against a grey background.
    Researchers from Tufts University and Colorado School of Mines recently presented a paper at the ACM/IEEE International Conference on Human Robot Interaction, exploring the role of indirect speech acts on our interactions with robots in different scenarios.
  • A headshot of Professor Kathleen Fisher.
    Professor Kathleen Fisher was part of a forum that informed the findings of a new report from the U.S. Government Accountability Office on "Artificial Intelligence: Emerging Opportunities, Challenges, and Implications."
  • Professor Darryl Williams and Lecturer Jennaca Davies build nature-inspired designs out of blocks.
    Foundations of Design: Methods of Making is the first class to be offered jointly by the School of Engineering and the School of the Museum of Fine Arts at Tufts.
  • A close-up image of yeast.
    A group of Tufts researchers have created a genetically modified yeast that grows faster and more efficiently, which could affect the design process for new synthetic organisms for industrial applications. 
  • An image of binary code against a blue background.
    Bridge Professor Susan Landau spoke to the New York Times about the security risks associated with creating methods for "extraordinary access" to encrypted devices. 
  • A close up of a computer screen with code on it.
    Professor Kathleen Fisher explains how recent developments by DARPA have allowed computer scientists to use mathematical proofs to verify that code—up to 100,000 lines of it at a time—is functionally correct and free of bugs.
  • Matthias Scheutz in a robotics programming classroom
    Professor Matthias Scheutz spoke to Austria's Der Standard about the unidirectional emotional bonds that humans can create between themselves and robots like automated vacuum cleaners.
  • Associate Professor Christopher Swan pictured in a lab.
    Associate Professor Chris Swan spoke to WGBH about effective testing methods for ash from an ash landfill in Saugus, Massachusetts. 
  • A close-up of a mouth with teeth. One tooth has a square gold sensor on it.
    New miniaturized sensors developed by Tufts researchers can be mounted directly on a tooth and transmit information on glucose, salt and alcohol intake wirelessly to a mobile device.
