Six from MIT awarded 2017 Fulbright grants

Three MIT undergraduate students and three graduate students have been awarded Fulbright U.S. Student Program grants to conduct independent research projects overseas during the coming academic year. In addition, a graduate student alumnus was named a Fulbright Finalist but declined the award.

The 2017-2018 Fulbright Students from MIT will engage in research projects in Germany, Austria, China, New Zealand, Mexico, and Poland.

The Fulbright Program is sponsored by the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs and operates in over 160 countries worldwide. It is designed to increase mutual understanding between the people of the United States and the people of other countries. Recipients of Fulbright awards are selected on the basis of academic and professional achievement as well as record of service and leadership potential in their respective fields. The MIT winners are:

James Deng graduated from MIT this spring with a BS in chemistry. During his Fulbright year in Germany, he will do research on epigenetics at the Ludwig Maximillian University of Munich. Deng will be investigating the interactions and regulation of TET proteins, which are associated with cancer and other diseases.

Jesse Feiman is an art history doctoral student in the History Theory and Criticism program within the School of Architecture and Planning. He will be spending his Fulbright year in Austria conducting archival research on the taxonomy system developed by the 18th century Viennese artist Adam von Bartsch.  

Jessica Gordon is a doctoral student in the Department of Urban Studies and Planning. Her Fulbright research in China will examine how governmental policies affect climate change adaptation. She will be conducting her research in Inner Mongolia, Jiangxi, and Guizhou provinces.

Jorlyn Le Garrec graduated this spring with a BS in mechanical and ocean engineering. As a Fulbright Student in New Zealand, she will pursue a research-based mechanical engineering master’s degree through the University of Auckland. Le Garrec’s research focuses on underwater robotics.

Albert Lopez is an architectural history doctoral student in the History Theory and Criticism program within the School of Architecture and Planning. Lopez will be based in Mexico City, where he will use his Fulbright grant to investigate architects’ contributions to Mexican political society and the discourses of integration during the 1940s-1950s. 

Jiwon Victoria Park graduated this spring with a BS in chemistry. She will be traveling to Poland to conduct research in organometallic chemistry at the Warsaw University of Technology. Park’s research has potential applications for drug delivery and electronic devices.
