|Editor in Chief of Nano-Letters,Prof. Teri W. Odom, will deliver a Keynote Speech on "Publishing in High-impact Journals"|
Teri W. Odom is an American chemist and materials scientist. She is the Chair of the Chemistry Department, Charles E. and Emma H. Morrison Professor of Chemistry, and a Professor of Materials Science and Engineering at Northwestern University. Odom was elected as the Chair of the Chemistry Department at Northwestern University, starting from September 1, 2018. Odom is also the Associate Director of International Institute for Nanotechnology at Northwestern University. Odom was an inaugural Associate Editor for Royal Society of Chemistry's flagship journal Chemical Science (2009-2013). Odom is a member of the editorial advisory board of ACS Nano, Chemical Physics Letters, Journal of Physical Chemistry, and Nano Letters. She is currently the Executive Editor of ACS Photonics.
Research in Odom group focus on controlling materials at 100 nm scale and investigating their size and shape-dependent properties. Odom group has developed parallel, multi-scale pattering tools to generate hierarchical, anisotropic, and 3D hard and soft materials with applications in imaging, sensing, wetting and cancer therapeutics.
As a result of Odom's nanofabrication tools, she has developed flat optics that can manipulate light at the nanoscale and beat the diffraction limit and tunable plasmon-based lasers.
Odom also conducts research into nanoparticle-cell interactions using new biological nanoconstructs that offer imaging and therapeutic functions due to their shape (gold nanostar).
