College House Research Fellows

Meet the College House Research Fellows!  Below is our current cohort of student researchers and projects.  Representing all four undergraduate schools, the RFs find creative ways to bridge their work to their College House community.  Based on their acceptance year, the RFs meet together in one of two cohorts (Red or Blue).
