Ghadiri Wins NSF Career Award

Dr. Elham Ghadiri

Elham Ghadiri, a professor of inorganic chemistry at Wake Forest University, has received a $650,000 grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) to fund research on new laser techniques that can be used to study photochemical reactions in sustainable semiconductors.

These reactions are at the heart of many environmental energy conversion systems, and understanding how they work could lead to more advanced clean energy technologies. Ghadiri’s research involves establishing state-of-the-art ultrafast laser spectroscopy and ultrafast laser microscopy that can visualize these reactions in real-time on a femtosecond time scale.

The grant will also support related educational outreach programs for high school students, adults, and Wake Forest undergraduate and graduate students.
