Dr. Tanya Faltens is the Educational Content Creation Manager for the Network for Computational Nanotechnology (NCN), which created the open access nanoHUB.org cyber-platform. After some early yet seminal work on high-temperature superconductors (YBa2Cu3O7), she went on to receive a Ph.D. in Materials Science and Engineering from UCLA in 2002 (Advisor: Bruce S. Dunn), on the topic of non-linear optical microcrystals. While at Cal Poly Pomona, she mentored undergraduate materials engineering research in several areas, including the synthesis and characterization of magnetic nanoparticles for use in wastewater remediation and the creation of thin-film wide band-gap semiconductor structures with controlled nanoscale porosity for organic photovoltaics. During this time, she also introduced nanoHUB simulation tools into the undergraduate curriculum in materials science and engineering and electrical engineering courses. She has several years of hands-on informal science education experience at the Lawrence Hall of Science, UC Berkeley, and continues to be involved in nanoscale science and technology research, educational, and outreach activities in her current position at Purdue University.
