NQPI is proud to announce Larousse Khosravi Khorashad as the recipient of the 2018 Outstanding Dissertation Award.

Khosravi Khorashad received his Ph.D. from Ohio University in 2017. His research area is a combination of computational physics and plasmonics with applications to nanotechnology. His dissertation is titled, “Theoretical and Computational Study of Optical Properties of Complex Plasmonic Structures.”

Khosravi Khorashad’s work involved theoretical and computational studies of optical properties of different nanostructures. He used a variety of software programs to simulate light scattering from nanostructures with different nature-inspired symmetric shapes.

After graduating from OHIO, Khosravi Khorashad worked as a post-doctoral scholar at the University of California, San Diego. This year, he returned to OHIO as a post-doctoral researcher to work with his Ph.D. advisor, NQPI member Alexander Govorov. Govorov said, “Larousse is very good at computational nanoscience.”

Khosravi Khorashad said he felt honored and appreciative of the support that helped him earn this award. “I would like to thank my Ph.D. adviser, Professor Govorov and my family, without whose support and help I would not be able to receive this honor,” Khosravi Khorashad said.
