Rachel Grange is an Assistant Professor in the field of nonlinear nanophotonics in the Department of Physics at ETH Zurich (Switzerland). She received her Ph.D. in 2006 from ETH Zurich on ultrafast laser physics. During her post-doc at EPFL (Switzerland), she worked on nonlinear bioimaging with metal-oxides nanoparticles. From 2011 to 2014, she was group leader at the Friedrich Schiller University in Jena (Germany). Her research covers material investigations at the nanoscale with high resolution imaging tools. She develops top-down and bottom-up fabricated nanostructures with metal-oxides, mainly lithium niobate and barium titanate. Her goal is to understand and control their behaviors to design versatile compact photonic devices. In 2016, she received an ERC starting grant to work on strategies to enhance optical nonlinearities in oxide nanomaterials. To date, she has published more than 40 articles with over 2300 citations.
