The Dow Doctoral Sustainability Fellowship supports students who are committed to finding interdisciplinary, actionable, and meaningful sustainability solutions on local-to-global scales.

In addition to receiving funding, Dow fellows participate in a series of cohort-building activities designed to expand individual understanding and effectiveness through regular engagement across a wide range of disciplinary perspectives.

Associate Professor Jerry Lynch is Hirose’s advisor. Hirose conducts research in the Center for Wireless Integrated MicroSensing and Systems (WIMS2) at the University of Michigan. The Center’s mission is to advance the design, fabrication, and breadth of the applications for sensor-driven microsensors and systems through research, education, and interactions with industry.

Previous honors for Hirose include the Rackham International Student Fellowship, which assists outstanding international students.
