Rebecca Anthony
Assistant Professor



Rebecca has a Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Minnesota (2011). Before that, she attended Carleton College in Northfield, Minnesota where she majored in Physics (2003). Her research interests include plasmas for synthesis of semiconductor nanostructures, gas-phase processing and functionalization of nanostructures, and aerosol deposition of functional films. The applications for these nanostructures and materials range from energy-oriented devices like light-emitting diodes and solar cells to biological imaging agents.

Rebecca enjoys running, cooking, and block-printing. Her husband is a doctor and informaticist who had a previous life as a photographer, and her young daughter (11 months at the time of writing) enjoys dancing to any kind of music.
