Prof. Rosfjord is no longer with the University of Maryland.
Kris Rosfjord received her B.E. degree in electrical engineering from the Georgia Institute of Technology and her M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering and computer science from the University of California, Berkeley, where she studied under Professor David Attwood. Most recently, Rosfjord has served as a post doctoral fellow in the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, where she worked with Professor Karl K. Berggren in the Quantum Nanostructures and Nanofabrication Group on nanowire single-photon detectors. She was supported by a Clare Boothe Luce Fellowship during her time at MIT. She was one of the first two postdoctoral fellows the Luce organization sponsored.
Rosfjord was primary author of an article that appeared in Optics Express and featured in multiple popular news outlets including USA Today and MSNBC. She is a member of the Optical Society of America, the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers and Sigma Xi, the Scientific Research Society.
Kristine Rosfjord’s research interests lie in nanowire single-photon detectors, nanofabrication techniques, and applications in x-ray and optical regimes. She is also interested in the cryogenic dependence of optical properties and measurements.
