E. Elinor Chen, Ph.D.

Senior Research Project Professional

E joined the lab after receiving her doctoral degree in experimental solid-state physics from Lehigh University in 2002. At Lehigh, her research focused on the optical properties of defects and impurities in semiconductor materials, as well as on the structure and properties of hydrogen through spectroscopy and electron irradiation. Currently, E has helped to develop new analysis methods for post-processing fMRI experiments and the design, implementation, acquisition, and analysis of these experiments.
