  • Assistant Professors Iryna Zenyuk, Xiaocheng Jiang, and Rob Viesca

    Assistant Professors Iryna Zenyuk, Xiaocheng Jiang, and Robert Viesca received CAREER Awards, the National Science Foundation's most prestigious award in support of junior faculty.

  • A robot sits on display before Tufts Department of Computer Science Professor Matthias Scheutz's robotics programming class.

    The Human Robot Interaction Lab is teaching robots how to trust and how to behave in ways that are consistent with our social and moral expectations.

  • Web of silk nano fibers  able to withstand a load 4,000 times its own weight.
    Biomedical engineers have developed a new bioinspired technique that transforms silk protein into complex materials that are easily programmable at the nano-, micro-, and macro-scales, as well as being ultralight and robust. 
  • Traffic in Boston's Chinatown
    Environmental engineers' paper on traffic-related air pollution in Somerville and Chinatown has been featured as an extramural paper of the month by the NIEHS' Environmental Factor.
  • Abstract rendering of a wireless security network
    Continuing the work they started as a senior capstone project at Tufts, three alumni have filed for a patent on a wireless device that would help secure vehicles and garage doors against replay attacks.
  • Close-up of a crack in a concrete road.
    Assistant Professor Rob Viesca has published paired papers that could help explain how dynamic fault rupture is initiated.
  • Dripping water
    The Executive Board of the International Water Resources Association (IWRA) selected a Tufts team's paper as Honorable Mention for Best Paper of 2015. The paper used water insecurity to predict domestic water demand in the Palestinian West Bank.
  • Lithium is one of the lightest and most energetic elements. It is also one of the most reactive. When exposed to water, it can burst into flame.

    Professor of the Practice Mike Zimmerman is developing a new generation of batteries that won't explode. Watch him talk about it on NOVA's "Search for the Super Battery."

  • Confined terahertz waves interact with tunable, two-dimensional electron gas in a novel slot waveguide.
    Tufts engineers have invented a chip-sized, high-speed modulator that operates at terahertz frequencies and at room temperature at low voltages without consuming DC power. It could make faster data transmission possible.
  • Associate Professor Lauren Black and postdoctoral scholar Whitney Stoppel at work in the Black Lab.

    Associate Professor Lauren Black and collaborators are developing a novel tissue graft which could give new hope to pediatric heart patients.
