Who We Are
Black in Nanotechnology is Co-founded by Olivia Geneus, a Physical Chemistry Ph.D. Candidate, and Jarriaun D. Streets M.S., a Sr. Biological Scientist, both current researchers in the field of Nanotechnology.
The Black in Nanotechnology initiative, is the first non-profit organization for Black scientists in nanotechnology and related fields. This initiative supports the contributions of Black scientists and highlights the continued barriers these scientists face. Black in Nanotechnology launched its inaugural conference ‘Black in Nano Week’ in December 2020.
Black in Nanotechnology aims to:
- Recognize the advancements of Black nanoscientists transforming the field of Nanotechnology,
- Build partnerships and networks to push innovative ideas that tackles challenging questions within the field,
- Highlight the disparities that translate in industry to positions that arise after graduate school,
- Inspire the next generation of nanoscientists.
