Graduate Student Victoria Quirós-Cordero Wins Multiple Support Awards
Leadership Skills & Research in Photonics Garners Awards for MSE Grad Student
Victoria Quirós-Cordero has been awarded a 2022 Optics and Photonics Education Scholarship by the International Society for Optics and Photonics (SPIE) for her potential contributions to the field photonics research. Quirós-Cordero is a Materials Science and Engineering PhD student at Georgia Institute of Technology advised by Materials Science and Engineering Professor Natalie Stingelin and School of Chemistry Professor Carlos Silva. Her research focuses on the photophysics of strong light-matter coupling in fully solution-processed microcavities, and her project aims to provide guidelines for the utilization of strong light-matter coupling and solution-processed photonic structures in chemistry and the realization of quantum information technologies. “I am very grateful to SPIE for their support. I am proud of representing Latin American women in optics and photonics,” said Quirós-Cordero. Quirós-Cordero also wished to thank her advisors and the Georgia Tech Quantum Alliance for their support. In addition to her recent SPIE award, Ms. Quirós-Cordero was selected and funded by the American Physical Society to participate in the Advancing Graduate Leadership (AGL) Conference that will be held on August in Washington DC.
