Department of Energy Computational Science Graduate Fellowship

The Department of Energy Computational Science Graduate Fellowship provides outstanding benefits and opportunities to students pursuing doctoral degrees in fields that use high-performance  computing to solve complex science and engineering problems.

Award Recipient

emmaJulia Ebert, S’15, behavioral neuroscience

Julia spent four years studying motor learning in humans in Professor Dagmar Sternad’s Action Lab. Earning a Marshall Scholarship during her senior year at Northeastern allowed her to pursue her Master of Research in bioengineering at Imperial College London, where she focused on the application of biological control in robotics. With the Department of Energy fellowship, Julia will enter the doctoral bioengineering program at Harvard’s School of Engineering and Applied Sciences, where she’ll study robotics, network theory, and biomechanics. Her ultimate goal is a career in academic research to apply biological movement control to prosthetics, exoskeletons, and autonomous robots.
