Said Rodriguez wins Early Career Award
Today the Royal Academy announced that AMOLF group leader Said Rodriguez is one of the winners of the Early Career Award. With this new prize the Academy wishes to reward talented researchers that have just started their career in the Netherlands. To further develop their original research ideas, the group of twelve researchers are rewarded today by the Academy. The prize consists of 15.000 euros and an artwork.
Said Rodriguez leads the Interacting Photons group, part of the Center for Nanophotonics in AMOLF. He got his PhD (‘Cum Laude’) at TU Eindhoven, having worked at AMOLF and Philips. Next he worked at the Center for Nanoscience and Nanotechnologies (France) as a Marie-Curie fellow. He has worked with several hybrid light-matter systems involving organic and inorganic luminescent materials as well as metallic and dielectric optical resonators. Together with his group, he currently explores emergent phenomena in photonic systems with nonlinearity and noise.
