Asst Professor

Dr. Prineha Narang is a Professor and Howard Reiss Chair in Physical Sciences at UCLA where she leads an interdisciplinary group in quantum science and technology. Prior to moving to UCLA, she was an Assistant Professor of Computational Materials Science at Harvard University. Before starting on the Harvard faculty, Dr. Narang was an Environmental Fellow at HUCE, and worked as a research scholar in condensed matter theory in the Department of Physics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). She received an M.S. and Ph.D. in Applied Physics from the California Institute of Technology (Caltech). Narang was recently named a U.S. Science Envoy by the State Department to forge connections and identify opportunities for sustained international cooperation in areas of quantum science and engineering. Narang’s work has been recognized by many honors, including APS’ Maria Goeppert Mayer Award, MRS’ Outstanding Early Career Investigator Award, Mildred Dresselhaus Prize, Bessel Research Award from the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation, an NSF CAREER Award, and being named a Moore Inventor Fellow by the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation. Her continued service to the community includes chairing the MRS Spring Meeting (2022) and the MRS-Kavli Foundation Future of Materials Workshop: Computational Materials Science (2021), as an Associate Editor at ACS Nano, and a leadership role in APS’ Division of Materials Physics.
