Jennifer S. Martinez
Director, Center for Materials Interfaces in Research and Applications
Prof. Martinez’s current research interests center on the development of fluorescent nano clusters, their physical characterization and their applications. Further, the Martinez group has been active in creating polymers through genetic engineering. Through combinatorial processes, they are creating systems to select for polymers that have defined function within days and not decades (for applications in both regenerative medicine and optoelectronics).
Prof. Martinez is privileged to have been honored as a AAAS and Kavli Fellow and has received the Presidential Early Career Award in Science and Engineering (PECASE), Los Alamos Fellows Research Prize and an R&D 100 Award (the “Emmy” of patent development), and other fellowships and student mentorship awards.
