Prineha Narang, Assistant Professor of Computational Materials Science at the Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS), has been awarded the Materials Research Society’s (MRS) Outstanding Early Career Investigator Award for her outstanding, interdisciplinary scientific work in materials research.

The MRS selected Narang for her “critical advances in the understanding of materials physics, optical sciences and topology for the prediction and design of quantum materials.”

At SEAS, Narang leads an interdisciplinary group of students and postdocs addressing fundamental questions in theoretical and computational materials science. Prior to joining the faculty, Narang was a Ziff Fellow at the Harvard University Center for the Environment and worked as a research scholar at Massachusetts Institute of Technology. She received MS and PhD degrees in applied physics from the California Institute of Technology.
