Stephanie Reich

Stephanie Reich holds the Chair for Experimental Solid State Physics at Freie Universität Berlin (FUB), Germany. She obtained her PhD from Technische Universität Berlin, Germany, in 2001. She was a Fellow of the Berlin-Brandenburg Academy of Science at the Institute of Materials Science in Barcelona, Spain, an Oppenheimer Research Fellow at the Department of Engineering at the University of Cambridge, UK, and Junior Research Fellow of Newnham College, Cambridge, UK. Before joining FUB, she was the Thomas B. King Assistant Professor at the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), MA. Stephanie is involved in the organization of leading conferences on nanoscale carbon, including the IWEPNM Kirchberg Winterschool (Co-Chair), the International Conference on Diamond and Carbon Materials (Co-Chair), and the Nanotube NT conference series (Advisory Board). Her research focuses on the electronic, optical, and vibrational properties of carbon nanostructures. Recently, she was particularly interested in tailoring carbon nanosystems via advanced functionalization and using them as nanoscale fillers in composite materials. She built up a research line on plasmonics and plasmon-enhanced spectroscopy of nanocarbons. Stephanie has authored more than 150 publications. She has won several research awards, including an ERC Starting Investigator Grant in 2007 and an ERC Consolidator Grant in 2017.
