Seth R. Marder obtained his Ph.D. from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 1985. After postdoctoral research at the University of Oxford, and a National Research Council Resident Research Assoc. at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) California Institute of Technology (Caltech), he became a member of the Technical Staff at the JPL. In 1998, he moved to the University of Arizona where he was a Professor of Chemistry and Optical Sciences. In 2003, he joined the Georgia Institute of Technology where he is currently a Regents’ Professor of Chemistry and a Professor of Materials Science and Engineering (courtesy). He was appointed Georgia Power Chair in Energy Efficiency in January 2010.
Dr. Marder was a founding director of the Center for Organic Photonics and Electronics and is the Co-Director of the NSF Materials Research Science and Engineering Center (MRSEC) at Georgia Tech. He is a recipient of the American Chemical Society (ACS) Arthur C. Cope Scholar Award, and Fellow of the Optical Society of America, Society of Photo-optical Instrumentation Engineers (SPIE), American Physical Society, Royal Society of Chemistry, and the American Association for the Advancement of Science. His research interests are in the development of materials for nonlinear optics, applications of organic dyes for photonic, display, electronic and medical applications, and organometallic chemistry.
