Tanja Cuk
Assistant Professor

Ph.D., Applied Physics, Stanford University
B.S.E., Electrical Engineering, Princeton University

Dr. Cuk obtained her Ph.D. in Applied Physics at Stanford University in 2007, after which she started her postdoctoral work at the University of California, Berkeley on a Miller Postdoctoral Fellowship. In 2010, after completing her fellowship, Cuk went on to become an Assistant Professor in the Department of Chemistry at Berkeley and a Faculty Scientist for the Chemical Sciences Division at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. Her research focuses on the fundamental mechanisms involved in converting charge into fuel at solid-liquid interfaces, for which she applies multiple time-resolved spectroscopies. She is supported by the Condensed Phase Interfaces and Materials Science program within the Department of Energy. She received the Air Force Office of Research Young Investigator Award and the Bakar Fellowship. She currently serves on the scientific advisory board of the ARC CBBC Consortium for a Sustainable Future in the Netherlands.
