Prof. Julia Ortony
Samuel A. Goldblith Career Development Chair
Department of Materials Science and Engineering
Massachusetts Institute of Technology
2005 B.S. Chemistry, University of Minnesota
2011 Ph.D. Chemistry, University of California, Santa Barbara
Prof. Ortony completed her Ph.D. in Prof. Songi Han’s group at U.C. Santa Barbara. Prof. Ortony’s graduate work involved developing instrumentation based on electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) spectroscopy for measuring the motion of water on molecular length scales in soft matter. Prof. Ortony’s postdoctoral research was under Prof. Samuel Stupp at Northwestern University. There she applied her instrumentation background to dynamics characterization of supramolecular materials. Prof. Ortony joined the faculty of MIT’s Department of Materials Science and Engineering in 2016. Details about her research program can be found here.
