Dr. Humberto Gutierrez, Assistant Professor, Department of Physics and Astronomy

Congratulations to Prof. Humberto Gutierrez, an assistant professor in the department of physics and astronomy, who has been awarded the NSF CAREER grant

(award amount: $492,412). Dr. Gutierrez is an accomplished researcher and has co-authored more than 60 scientific articles that have appeared in high scientific impact journals such as Nature Scientific Reports, Nano Letters, ACS Nano, etc.

In the NSF Career proposal, Dr. Gutierrez proposes to explore Two-Dimensional Heterostructures Based on Transition Metal Dichalcogenides with the purpose of improving their optoelectronic properties. His proposal will focus on innovative design principles, synthesis, and band gap engineering via doping and alloying effects of these two-dimensional materials.
