Nikoleta Theodoropoulou, an assistant professor of physics at Texas State, has been awarded the National Science Foundation (NSF) CAREER Award for her work as a researcher, teacher and scholar.

The $500,000 award will extent over five years. Theodoropoulou will use the award to explore new physical phenomena that emerge at the interfaces between different oxides.

Successful implementation of the research findings could lay the foundation for a new technology platform based on the interfaces of hybrid materials. It can lead to a large-scale use of oxide technology and has the potential to usher in a new era of highly integrated oxide-based charge and spin electronics.

The Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Program is a foundation-wide activity that offers the NSF’s most prestigious awards in support of junior faculty who exemplify the role of teacher-scholars through outstanding research, excellent education and the integration of education and research.
