Justin Wade Firestone

NIJ Graduate Research Fellow
University of Nebraska, Lincoln

Justin Wade Firestone is pursuing his Ph.D. in Computer Science at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, with a sub-specialty in software engineering and its potential applications to synthetic biology and bioinformatics. The GRF allowed me to pursue my doctoral research by supporting me financially, so I did not have to work part time at another occupation and did not have to take on any teaching assistantships, he says. It has made me more seriously consider pursuing a research professorship upon graduation. I enjoy being able to pursue my own interests, which leads to more satisfying and more valuable results.
