    BioEileen Otte is a postdoctoral researcher in Prof. Mark L. Brongersma’s group at the Geballe Laboratory for Advanced Materials (GLAM), Stanford University, supported by the GLAM fellowship as well as DAAD PRIME program (Germany). Her research expertise spans various areas of optics & photonics and related fields including structured light; topological, singular, and quantum optics; light-matter interactions and optical trapping; nanophotonics and metamaterials; and advanced imaging with diverse applications. After completing her Master degree with distinction, she specialized on structured singular light in her PhD studies. She performed her research at the University of Muenster (WWU), Germany, as well as the University of Witwatersrand, South Africa, under supervision of Prof. Dr. Cornelia Denz and Prof. Dr. Andrew Forbes. In 2019 she finished her PhD, honored with "summa cum laude" and the WWU Dissertation Award in Physics, and recognized internationally as part of the Springer Theses series. Further, she received the Research Award 2020 of the Industrial Club Duesseldorf and is a junior class member of the NRW Academy of Sciences, Humanities, and the Arts. In 2021, Eileen moved to Stanford, focusing on nanoscale light-matter interactions in collaboration with the Center for Soft Nanoscience, WWU, Germany. Eileen has published 24 peer-reviewed articles as well as a book and was invited for 18 talks including one keynote talk at international conferences, seminars, and colloquia.
