Profile Summary

Hatice Altug is professor in the Institute of Bioengineering at Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne (EPFL), Switzerland. She is also director of EPFL Doctoral School in Photonics. She received her Ph.D. in Applied Physics from Stanford University in 2007 and her B.S. in Physics from Bilkent University (Turkey) in 2000. Prof. Altug is the recipient of European Physical Society Emmy Noether Distinction, Optical Society of America Adolph Lomb Medal, and U.S. Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers. She received European Research Council (ERC) Consolidator Grant, ERC Proof of Concept Grant, U.S. Office of Naval Research Young Investigator Award, U.S. National Science Foundation CAREER Award, Massachusetts Life Science Center New Investigator Award, IEEE Photonics Society Young Investigator Award. She is an elected fellow of Optical Society of America. She won the Inventors’ Challenge competition of Silicon Valley in 2005, and has been named to Popular Science Magazine’s "Brilliant 10" list in 2011.

Prof. Altug’s research is focused on nanophotonics and its application to biosensing with expertise covering from optics, microfluidics, nanofabrication, biochemistry to data science. Her laboratory introduces next-generation nanophotonic biosensors, spectroscopy, and bioimaging technologies for label-free, real-time, and high-throughput analysis of biological samples for point-of-care diagnostics, bioanalytics, and life sciences.
