Dr. Victoria Chernow

ARPA-E Fellow Victoria Chernow

Dr. Victoria Chernow currently serves as an ARPA-E Fellow. Her interests include multifunctional material design, photonics for energy applications, and electrochemical energy systems.

Chernow received her Ph.D. in Materials Science from the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) under the direction of Prof. Julia R. Greer. For her Ph.D., Chernow studied the relationship between nanomaterial architecture, periodicity, and optical response, with a focus on photonic bandgap tunability, frequency dependent negative refraction, super-prism effects, and super collimation. Prior to ARPA-E, she worked as a Summer Associate in the Systems Evaluation Division at the Institute for Defense Analyses. There she developed a technical assessment of the Laser Shock Peening materials processing qualification program for the F-22 Raptor fighter aircraft. Chernow also worked as a Research Scientist at Soane Labs, an incubator research group focused on developing sustainable chemistry formulations, water treatment technologies, and surface coatings for agriculture and energy processes.

Chernow earned an M.S. in Materials Science from Caltech, and an A.B. in Chemistry from Harvard University.
