Dr. Laura Kim

Alumni - Academic Postdocs


Laura received her B.S. in chemical engineering (2013) and Ph.D. in materials science (2019) from Caltech as a NSF Graduate Fellow under the supervision of Professor Harry Atwater. Her doctoral research focused on understanding light-matter interactions in two-dimensional materials ranging from mid-infrared nanophotonics to ultrafast phenomena in graphene. She is currently an IC Postdoctoral Fellow at MIT with Professor Dirk Englund.
