Diana Qiu wins Packard Fellowship

October 14, 2021

Diana Qiu, assistant professor of mechanical engineering & materials science with a secondary appointment in physics, has won the prestigious Packard Fellowship in Science and Engineering.

Qiu’s project focuses on developing new ways to study the exciton and get a better understanding of its properties and behaviors. That includes understanding its light-matter interactions, and revealing the fundamental science of excitons at all energies and timescales.

The Packard Fellowship in Science and Engineering is among the nation’s largest nongovernmental fellowships, designed to allow maximum flexibility in how the funding is used. Since 1988, this program has supported the blue-sky thinking of scientists and engineers whose research over time has led to new discoveries that improve people’s lives and enhance our understanding of the universe.
