The National Science Foundation (NSF) Graduate Research Fellowship Program (GRFP) provides support to outstanding graduate students who are working on research-based master's and doctoral degrees in NSF-supported science, technology, engineering, and mathematics disciplines. This year, four Tufts alumni and one graduating senior were among the exceptional graduate students recognized nationwide.

Megan Tse, E18, is pursuing a PhD at Brown University, where her research interests include biomaterials, microneedles, drug delivery, and tissue engineering. She completed her BS in biomedical engineering at Tufts.

Lucy Qin, A15, is pursuing a PhD in computer science at Brown University, where she works on applied cryptography in the Encrypted Systems Lab. She completed her bachelor's in computer science and economics at Tufts.

Michelle Gee, E20, is currently completing her BS in chemical engineering at Tufts, and will be pursuing a PhD in chemical engineering. She is interested in studying polymers and soft matter for applications in the biomedical or energy/environmental fields.

Jason Fan, A17, is pursuing a PhD in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Maryland, where his research interests include bioinformatics, cancer research, and machine learning. He earned his bachelor's in computer science and mathematics from Tufts.

Trevor Donadt, E10, is pursuing a PhD in Cornell University’s Robert Frederick Smith School of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, with research in molecular-scale surface-bacteria interactions. He completed his BS in chemical engineering at Tufts University.

Congratulations to Megan, Lucy, Michelle, Jason, and Trevor!
