Thomas Frost, a first semester PhD student in electrical engineering, received the good news that he has been awarded a prestigious NSF Graduate Research Fellowship to continue his research at the University of Michigan.

Frost is a recent graduate of the department, and has already done research as part of his advisor’s group while still an undergraduate student. He is currently working on semiconductor lasers as part of the research group of Prof. Pallab Bhattacharya, Charles M. Vest Distinguished University Professor.


The National Science Foundation’s Graduate Research Fellowship Program (GRFP) recognizes and supports outstanding graduate students in NSF-supported science, technology, engineering, and mathematics disciplines who are pursuing research-based master’s and doctoral degrees in the U.S. and abroad.
