Biography: 

Aseema Mohanty is the Clare Boothe Luce Assistant Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. She received her BS degree from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and her PhD and MS degrees from Cornell University. During her postdoctoral research at Columbia University, she worked with Professor Michal Lipson, studying the design, fabrication, and application of silicon-based nanophotonic devices for neuroscience and quantum information systems. Her research focuses on using nanophotonics and engineered light-matter interactions to create miniaturized high performance optical circuits to control, shape, and sense light. Her interest in chip-scale optical devices broadly span the fields of neuroscience, implantable and wearable biomedical sensors, 3D optical beam shaping, quantum information, and emerging computing and communication systems.
