Assistant Professor of Computational Materials Science
Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences
Prineha Narang is an Assistant Professor at the John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences at Harvard University. Prior to joining the faculty, Prineha came to Harvard as a Ziff Environmental Fellow at the Harvard University Center for the Environment to explore the new field of excited state quantum materials and devices. She was also a Research Scholar in Condensed Matter Theory at the MIT Dept. of Physics, working on new theoretical methods to describe electron-phonon coupling in materials.
Prineha received her Sc.B. in Materials Science from Drexel University and an M.S. and Ph.D. in Applied Physics from the California Institute of Technology (Caltech), as a National Science Foundation Graduate Fellow and Resnick Sustainability Institute Fellow, where her work focused on understanding light-matter interactions in areas ranging from quantum plasmonics to nitride optoelectronics. Prineha's current research interests include excited-state and ultrafast optoelectronic materials, atomic-scale engineering, imaging and sensing technologies. Outside of science, she is an avid triathlete and runner.
