Douglas Natelson is a professor in the Department of Physics and Astronomy at Rice University, with courtesy appointments in Electrical and Computer Engineering and Materials Science and Nanoengineering. After a bachelor’s degree in mechanical and aerospace engineering (1993, Princeton), Prof. Natelson received his doctorate in experimental condensed matter physics from Stanford University in 1998, arriving at Rice University in 2000 following a postdoctoral appointment at Bell Laboratories. Prof. Natelson has been awarded a Sloan Foundation fellowship, a David and Lucille Packard Foundation research fellowship, and a CAREER award from the National Science Foundation. He is a fellow of the American Physical Society and the American Association for the Advancement of Science. His research interests focus on condensed matter physics at the nanoscale, including atomic-and molecular-scale junctions, plasmonics, and nanodevices for the study of strongly correlated electronic materials. A recurring theme is the use of nanoscale structures to address open questions in condensed matter physics. Prof. Natelson also has a long-standing interest in communicating science to a broader audience, and since 2005 has been writing the blog Nanoscale Views.
