Background

Quyen Nguyen obtained her Ph.D. in Physical Chemistry from UCLA in 2001. She received several awards including the Dissertation Award from the University of California for outstanding performance in research and the Outstanding Innovative Research Award from the Advanced Materials. She was a research associate in the Department of Chemistry and the Nanocenter at Columbia University working with Louis Brus and Colin Nuckolls. She also spent time at IBM Research center at T. J. Watson (Yorktown Heights, NY) working with Richard Martel and Phaedon Avouris. She joined the faculty at UCSB in 2004. Her research focuses on understanding the photophysics and electronic properties of novel organic and metal-organic hybrid materials for applications in molecular electronics, transistors, photovoltaics, and sensors. Particularly, she is interested in how intermolecular interactions influence the photophysics, electronic properties, and charge transport in these materials both at the nanoscale and in the bulk using various scanning probe techniques and femto-second laser spectroscopy as well as how to control these intermolecular interactions to tune material properties. Her group seeks to correlate the structure-function-property relationship and also work closely with synthetic chemistry and theory groups to design new materials. She is the recipient of the 2005 ONR Young Investigator Award.obtained her Ph.D. in Physical Chemistry from UCLA in 2001.
