Meet Professor Cassandra Fraser

Professor Cassandra L Fraser from University of Virginia joined the editorial board of Materials Chemistry Frontiers in 2016. She specializes in responsive materials for imaging, sensing and detection, specifically oxygen sensing biomaterials, mechanochromic luminescence materials and polymeric metal complexes.

Cassandra Fraser

Cassandra Fraser holds degrees from Kalamazoo College (BA 1984), Harvard Divinity School (MTS 1988) and The University of Chicago (PhD 1993, advisor: Brice Bosnich). She was an NIH postdoctoral fellow with Robert Grubbs at the California Institute of Technology (1993-5). Fraser is current a Professor of Chemistry at the University of Virginia, with joint appointments in Biomedical Engineering and the School of Architecture.

At UVA, she was awarded a Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers, an NSF CAREER Award, an Alfred P. Sloan Research Fellowship, and young professor awards from Dupont and 3M. Her teaching and mentoring accolades include the Cavaliers Distinguished Teaching Professorship and induction into the University Teaching Academy.
