Kristine Rosfjord will join the Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) Department as the Clare Boothe Luce Assistant Professor in Spring 2007.

"We are delighted to have Kristine join our department," said ECE Department Chair Dr. Patrick O'Shea. "She will be an excellent addition to our faculty, and will provide a new dimension to the quality of our research and education programs."

Rosfjord received her B.E. degree in electrical engineering from the Georgia Institute of Technology and her M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering and computer science from the University of California, Berkeley, where she studied under Professor David Attwood. Most recently, Rosfjord has served as a post-doctoral fellow in the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, where she worked with Professor Karl K. Berggren in the Quantum and Nanostructures and Nanofabrication Group on nanowire single-photon detectors. She was supported by a Clare Boothe Luce Fellowship during her time at MIT.

Rosfjord’s research interests include photodetectors, nanofabrication, x-rays, and optical properties of materials. When she is not in the lab, she enjoys skiing, hiking, and mountain biking.

Sponsored by the Henry Luce Foundation, the Clare Boothe Luce Program is the single most significant source of private support for women in science, engineering and mathematics. The program offers funding for undergraduate scholarships, graduate fellowships, and tenure-track appointments at the assistant or associate professorship level. The program is named for Clare Boothe Luce, a playwright, journalist, U.S. ambassador to Italy, and the first woman elected to Congress from Connecticut, who was married to publisher Henry Luce. The program encourages women to achieve distinction in the fields of science, engineering and mathematics, where traditionally there have been obstacles to their advancement.
