Provost and Senior Vice President Medford, MA

We are pleased to announce that Tufts University has named Nadine Aubry as its Provost and Senior Vice President, effective July 1, 2019.

Dr. Aubry, who has lead Northeastern University’s College of Engineering since 2012, is an internationally recognized scholar and academic innovator.

At Northeastern, Dr. Aubry launched a number of new initiatives, including the College of Engineering Diversity and Inclusion Council, that helped spur notable increases in the enrollment of women and underrepresented minority students.

Prior to Northeastern, Dr. Aubry was the head of the Department of Mechanical Engineering and the Raymond J. Lane Distinguished Professor at Carnegie Mellon University.

At both institutions, she has demonstrated an ability to build innovative academic programs, grow research, enhance academic quality, generate new resources, and create interdisciplinary programs bridging disparate areas of study.

Dr. Aubry is an elected member of the National Academy of Engineering and the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, as well as a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, the American Academy of Mechanics, the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics, the American Physical Society, the American Society of Mechanical Engineers, and the National Academy of Inventors. She was the recipient of the 2017 G.I. Taylor Medal from the Society of Engineering Science.

A native of France who is now a dual citizen, Dr. Aubry holds a Diplôme d’Ingénieur from Institut National Polytechnique Grenoble and a Diplôme d’Etudes Approfondies from Université Grenoble Alpes, both in mechanical engineering, and received a Ph.D. in mechanical and aerospace engineering from Cornell University.
