The nanoscience and technology (NST) Postdoctoral Fellow Presentation Series is an opportunity at Argonne National Laboratory for postdocs to present their research in order to facilitate networking between postdocs and staff scientists. The best presentation is selected annually through ballots available to anyone who attends a talk.
The winner of the 2018 edition was announced at the NST division holiday lunch on December 14, 2018. Dr Matthew Otten has been awarded the 2018 NST Best Postdoctoral Fellow Presentation Award and has received $200 prize sponsored by the Royal Society of Chemistry journal Nanoscale, a high impact international journal that publishes the experimental and theoretical articles across the breadth of nanoscience and nanotechnology.
Matt received his bachelor degree from Illinois Institute of Technology and PhD in physics from Cornell. He joined the NST division in the fall of 2017 as a recipient of prestigious Maria Coepper Mayer Fellowship available at Argonne National Laboratory to top science and engineering young talents. Matt is working on the theory and modeling of quantum information and sensing processes in nanoscale systems such as metallic nanostructures interacting with quantum dots the dynamics of NV centers in diamond.
