David Tuckerman, PhD
1979 Hertz Fellow
"The Hertz Fellowship allowed me the flexibility to choose an unconventional thesis topic (microchannel cooling) rather than being force-fit into an existing funded research program. The startup company that I co-founded was a direct offshoot of interests that I developed during my PhD research."
