    Biographical Statement
     

    Naomi Halas is the Stanley C. Moore Professor in Electrical and Computer Engineering, with appointments in the Departments of Chemistry, Physics and Astronomy, Biomedical Engineering, and Materials Science and Nanoengineering.  She is Director of the Laboratory for Nanophotonics at Rice University, and Director of the Smalley Institute.  She received her PhD in physics from Bryn Mawr College, pursuing her thesis research as a graduate fellow at IBM Yorktown.  She served as a postdoctoral associate at AT&T Bell Laboratories before joining the Rice faculty.  She pursues fundamental studies in nanophotonics as well as applications of plasmonics in biomedicine, optoelectronics, chemical sensing, photocatalysis, and solar energy.   She is author of more than 250 refereed publications, has more than fifteen issued patents, and has presented more than 450 invited talks. She has been cited more than 30,000 times, with an H index in the eighties. She is co-founder of Nanospectra Biosciences, a Houston-based company developing photothermal therapies for cancer and other diseases based on her nanoparticles. Halas has been elected to the National Academy of Sciences, the National Academy of Engineering and the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. She is a recipient of the American Physical Society 2014 Frank Isakson Prize for Optical Effects in Solids and the 2015 R. W. Wood Prize of the Optical Society of America. She is a Fellow of OSA, APS, SPIE, IEEE, MRS, and the American Association for the Advancement of Science. She is a member of the Editorial Advisory Board of Chemical Physics Letters and ACS Nano, and an Associate Editor of Nano Letters.
