Graduate Students

Rachel Rachel Owyeung
Rachel is pursuing a Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering after receiving her B.S. in Chemical Engineering from the University of California, San Diego in 2016. There, she investigated stretchable, semiconducting polymers towards electronic skin applications. Her research now focuses on novel materials for environmentally conscious soft/flexible electronics and wearable devices. When she's not in the lab, Rachel enjoys eating, staying active, and exploring the outdoors.
Huan Huan Qin
Huan is a Ph.D. candidate in Chemical Engineering. He obtained his B.S. degree from Tianjin University in 2014. Huan's research is focused on new applications pairing ionogels with solution-processed semiconductors. An adventurous person, Huan enjoys tackling new challenges. Outside of the lab, he likes to play basketball and enjoy outdoor sports such as skiing and hiking.
Morgan Taylor Morgan Taylor
Morgan is a Ph.D. candidate in Chemical Engineering. Before joining the GENE Lab at Tufts, Morgan received their M.S. in Chemical Engineering from Rutgers, the State University of New Jersey in 2016. The focus of their thesis was characterization of solution properties of ionic polymers. Now, their work focuses on understanding interactions between zwitterionic materials and ionic liquids for electrochemical storage applications. Outside of doing research, they enjoy drawing, practicing piano, listening to music, and cooking.
