Quondam Fellow

Dr. Claire West completed her Bachelor’s of Science degree in Physics at the University of California, Santa Barbara in 2016 and earned her PhD in Chemistry at the University of Washington in December 2021 with a dissertation titled, “Theoretical Models and Numerical Approaches to Nanoscale Microscopies and Spectroscopies of Plasmonic Systems.” In 2022, she was awarded a Royal Society – Newton International Postdoctoral Fellowship at the University of Cambridge. Dr. West’s current research interests include combining theory, computation, and experiment to investigate alternative plasmonic and nanophotonic materials which are cost-effective and sustainable.
