Nan M. Jokerst

J. A. Jones Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering

Nan Marie Jokerst is the J.A. Jones Distinguisted Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering, a Philip Baugh Scholar, and Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Duke University. She received her BS in Physics from Creighton University in 1982, and her MS and PhD in Electrical Engineering from the University of Southern California in 1984 and 1989, respectively. Before joining the Duke faculty, she served on the ECE faculty of the Georgia Institute of Technology for 15 years, and was Research Director of the NSF ERC in Electronic Packaging Research, and a researcher in the Microelectronics Research Center at Georgia Tech. She was named an IEEE Fellow in 2003, an Optical Society of America Fellow in 2000, and was awarded an IEEE Third Millenium Medal Winner in 2000. She was named a National Science Foundation Presidential Young Investigator in 1990, a DuPont Young Professor in 1989, a Newport Research Award winner in 1986, and a Hewlett Packard Fellow in 1983. She has also been recognized for her teaching accomplishments, which include the IEEE Education Society Harris B. Rigas Medal in 2002 and the award for Best Teacher in Electrical Engineering at Georgia Tech in 1990. Her research work focuses on integrated nanosystems and microsystems with an emphasis on photonic integration for sensing and telecommunications systems. She has over 200 refereed publications and presentations, and five patents.
