  • A figure image of the paper-nose
    In a new paper, researchers printed chemoresponsive dyes and chemiresistive inks on paper to develop a "paper-nose" optoelectronic sensor for volatile gases in air.
  • A close up of cheese rinds with bacteria.
    Through a Tufts Collaborates grant, Assistant Professor Jeffrey Guasto is working with Benjamin Wolfe of the Department of Biology to study the effects of bacteria "highways" on ripeness and food safety in cheeses. 
  • 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.
