- Tufts Ski Team co-captain Sami Rubin, E20, and teammates recently competed in races at the Dartmouth Skiway, and provided tips on how to become a better skier.
- Distinguished Professor Maria Flytzani-Stephanopoulos received this year’s American Chemical Society Catalysis Lectureship for the Advancement of Catalytic Science with her Tufts colleague Charles Sykes, to be presented at the American Chemical Society national meeting in San Diego in August. The two faculty members received the honor for their work developing single-atom metal catalysts that could be significantly more efficient than those currently deployed in the production of goods such as fuel and plastics, the processing of food, and removing harmful gases in catalytic converters.
- Researchers from the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering studied methods to support the development of GaAsBi-based devices for mid- and far-infrared applications, focusing on the increasing the fractions of the element bismuth without losing material quality.
- Join us for Engineers Week at Tufts, February 15-22. All are welcome!
- A group of Tufts researchers from the Departments of Computer Science and Chemical and Biological Engineering were on a team that utilized PROXIMAL, a tool that predicts putative structural modifications, to use enzyme promiscuity as basis to predict hundreds of reactions and metabolites that may exist in E. coli but have not been documented in other databases.
- With colleagues from the Department of Physics and Astronomy, Assistant Professor Ayse Asatekin (pictured) and postdoctoral scholar Ilin Sadeghi, EG18, created hydrophobic polymer blends and used electrospinning to fabricate them into nonwoven fibrous membranes, focusing on their thermal properties and structures.
- A first-of-its-kind study led by Tufts researchers, in collaboration with Somerville officials and citizens, will measure indoor air quality and comfort in multifamily housing developments near busy roadways.
- Center for STEM Diversity Director Ellise LaMotte reflects on the successes, challenges, and future plans of the Center as it celebrates a decade of service at Tufts.
Assistant Professor Deborah Sunter and colleagues determined that racial inequality persists in the deployment of rooftop solar panels.
