Teri W. Odom is the Board of Lady Managers of the Columbian Exposition Professor of Chemistry and a professor of materials science and engineering at Northwestern University. Her research focuses on controlling materials at the 100-nanometer scale and investigating their size- and shape-dependent optical properties. She has developed massively parallel, multiscale nanopatterning tools to generate noble metal (plasmonic) structures that can manipulate visible light at the nanoscale and exhibit extraordinary optical properties. Odom received her BS from Stanford University and her PhD in chemical physics from Harvard University. Selected honors include the National Fresenius Award from Phi Lambda Upsilon, an NIH Director’s Pioneer Award, an Outstanding Young Investigator Award from the Materials Research Society, a Packard Fellowship for Science and Engineering, and a Sloan Research Fellowship. Odom is an associate editor for Chemical Science and is on the editorial advisory boards of ACS Nano, the Journal of Physical Chemistry, and Nano Letters.
