Jie Gao, MS '07, PhD '12
Missouri University of Science and Technology, Rolla, MO
Dr. Gao received her M.S. degree in Mechanical Engineering and Ph.D. in Applied Physics from Columbia University under the mentorship of Prof.Chee Wei Wong. Her group's research in nanophotonics is a multidisciplinary research area that bridges the researchers across the fields of engineering, physics, applied physics, and material science. Her lab is dedicated to design, fabrication and characterization of nanophotonic, plasmonic, optical metamaterial devices for understanding light-matter interactions at the nanoscale, which will advance many exciting applications in optical sensing, chip-scale light sources and quantum information processing.
