Ana Laura Elías Arriaga

Assistant Professor

Physics, Applied Physics and Astronomy


Ana Laura Elias joined Binghamton University in 2020. Her research interests revolve around the engineering and characterization of novel materials, seeking to explore and understand their structure-physical property correlations.

Elias has synthesized two dimensional (2D) and layered materials such a graphene, nitrogen doped graphene, various transition metal dichalcogenides and hetero-architectures using combinations of those layers. She has studied in detail the Raman spectroscopy fingerprints of such novel layered materials.

According to the Web of Knowledge database, Elias has published more than seventy peer reviewed research papers, which have been cited over 6800 times (h-index of 38).

Ana Laura Elias is committed with the improvement of diversity, climate and inclusion in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) fields.
