January 31, 2023 

Georgios VeronisBATON ROUGE, LA – LSU Electrical & Computer Engineering Professor Georgios Veronis was recently elected as one of 83 new Fellows of SPIE, the international society for optics and photonics. Fellows are members of the society who have made significant scientific and technical contributions in the multidisciplinary fields of optics, photonics, and imaging.

This year’s inductees represented a varied group of countries that include Australia, Belgium, China, France, Japan, Mexico, India, Germany, the Netherlands, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, New Zealand, and the United States. Veronis was recognized for specific achievements in the areas of nanoscale photonic circuits based on plasmonics and numerical algorithms for the simulation of nanophotonic structures.

Veronis joined LSU in 2008 and has a joint appointment with the LSU Center for Computation & Technology. He earned his master’s and PhD in electrical engineering from Stanford University prior to coming to LSU; and his research interests include the theory and simulation of photonic materials, nanoscale photonic devices, plasmonics, and computational electromagnetics. He also received the National Science Foundation CAREER Award in 2013.
