Susmita Bose received her B.S. degree in chemistry (with honors) from the University of Kalyani, India, in 1990, M.S. degree in chemistry from the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Kanpur in 1992, and Ph.D. degree in physical organic chemistry from Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, in 1998. Dr. Bose joined WSU as a Research Assistant Professor in 1998. In 2001, she became an Assistant Professor, and in 2006 she was promoted to an Associate Professor. From January to June 2008, she has served as a Visiting Professor at the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences at Harvard University. In 2002, Dr. Bose received the CAREER Award from the National Science Foundation (NSF) and in 2004 she received the Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers (PECASE) from the NSF. In 2006 she was invited by the National Academy of Sciences (NAS) to participate in the US-Chinese Kavli Frontiers in Science Symposium. In 2007 and 2008, she was invited by the NAS to serve in a seven member US organizing committee for the same symposium. Her research interest lies at the interface of chemistry, materials science, and engineering. Her group focuses on synthesis and processing of materials with special emphasis on nanomaterials for biomedical, piezoelectric, and sensor applications. She published more than 95 technical articles and supervised over 20 graduate students. Her current research is funded by the National Institute of Health (NIH), NSF, the M. J. Murdock Charitable Trust, the Office of Naval Research (ONR), and the W. M. Keck Foundation.
