B.A. Chemistry and Physics, Wellesley College 2010
Ph.D. University of California, Berkeley 2015
Madeline received her bachelors from Wellesley College in 2010 with majors in physics and chemistry where she worked in the laboratory of Professor Wilton L. Virgo. In December 2015, she completed her doctoral work in physical chemistry at the University of California, Berkeley with Professor Daniel M. Neumark. When she wasn’t making icicles in her vacuum chamber, Madeline used time-resolved photoelectron spectroscopy on liquid microjets to study the ultrafast relaxation dynamics of the hydrated electron, the simplest quantum solute.
In February 2016, she moved to Princeton University. As a Canadian Institute for Advanced Research (CIFAR) Post-Doctoral Fellow within the Bio-Inspired Solar Energy program, she studies the role of coherence in artificial light harvesting materials including organic and polymeric semiconductors and perovskites under the joint supervision of Greg Scholes, Edward Sargent (U Toronto), Karl Leo (TU Dresden), and Mario LeClerc (Laval).
