Graduate Research


Imagine being able to conduct research alongside professors from the Tulane School of Medicine, the School of Science and Engineering, the School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine, and the Tulane National Primate Research Center. It’s no wonder that our graduate student researchers play a part in some of the top discoveries today.  Or pursue research under the direction of faculty from the School of Liberal Arts along with members of Social Work and Architecture that changes the way we look at the world.

All graduate students in the School of Science and Engineering engage in research, most often in collaboration with one or more members of the SSE faculty. Graduate students are credited as authors in any published works. In the School of Liberal Arts, graduate students find mentorship and support for their research, whether they conduct their scholarship and creative activities locally or around the world.

Check out our list of external funding resources for fellowships, research grants, and postdoctoral training. 

Read about some of the work our graduate students are doing:

  • John Robertson, a graduate student in physics, was on the team of Tulane students who earned the top prize in NASA's 2017 BIG Idea Challenge, beating teams from the top aerospace programs in the country.
  • Annie Freitas, a student in the City, Culture, and Community doctoral program at Tulane, leads NCI’s Newcomb Prison Project, which connects project participants with incarcerated and formerly incarcerated people.
  • Jordan Adams, a doctoral student in the School of Science and Engineering at Tulane, is applying models of rainfall and water flow to areas that have been burned by wildfires to understand how rainfall affects scorched soils.
