Natalia Azarova received a Bachelor of Science degree in Physics from Wake Forest University in 2010. During her time at WFU, she worked in a biophysics lab studying the reactions nitric oxide undergoes in the blood, and then transferred to the Organic Electronics Group, where she fabricated organic thin-film field-effect transistors with novel solution processable organic semiconductor materials, focusing particularly on the spray deposition technique. She began her graduate studies in 2010 at the University of Colorado- Boulder. She joined the Chemical Sciences and Nanoscience Group at NREL in June 2011. Her research at NREL focuses on the effect of metallic nanostructures on the optical absorption efficiency of organic solar cells (OSCs).
