珍妮弗·迪翁 is an associate professor of Materials Science and Engineering at Stanford. Jen received her Ph. D. in Applied Physics at the 加州 Institute of Technology, advised by Harry Atwater, and B.S. degrees in Physics and Systems & Electrical 工程 from Washington University in St. Louis. Prior to joining 斯坦福, she served as a postdoctoral researcher in Chemistry at Berkeley, advised by Paul Alivisatos. Jen’s research develops new optical materials and microscopies to observe chemical and biological processes as they unfold with nanometer scale resolution. She then uses these observations to help improve energy-relevant processes (such as photocatalysis and energy storage) and medical diagnostics and therapeutics. Her work has been recognized with the Alan T. Waterman Award (2019), a Moore Inventor Fellowship (2017), the Materials Research Society Young Investigator Award (2017), Adolph Lomb Medal (2016), Sloan Foundation Fellowship (2015), and the Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers (2014), and was recently featured on Oprah’s list of “50 Things that will make you say ‘Wow’!”.
