Dr. Dagny Fleischman

Alumni - Industry and Private Sector



Dagny received her PhD in Materials Science in 2018. Her research focused on the interactions of light and matter to produce color. She is currently worked with plasmonic metamaterials to develop narrow bandwidth high transmission color filters that can be integrated into state-of-the-art CMOS image sensors. Before joining the Atwater group, she completed her Master’s in Materials Science at The University of Pennsylvania by working to develop strain engineered silicon nanostructures for use as thermoelectric materials. When she is not directly engaging with science, Dagny is likely to be found doing acroyoga or enjoying a good microbrew.

She is currently working in hardware development for Apple.
