Georgia Institute of Technology
Quinn Spadola is Associate Director for Education and Outreach for the NSF-supported National Nanotechnology Coordinated Infrastructure (NNCI), Education and Outreach Coordinator for the Southeastern Nanotechnology Infrastructure Corridor NNCI site, and an Academic Professional in the Institute for Electronics and Nanotechnology.
Prior to joining Georgia Institute of Technology, Quinn was Education and Outreach Coordinator, and Technical Advisor to the Director in the National Nanotechnology Coordination Office. She joined that office as an AAAS Science and Technology Policy Fellow in 2014 and stayed on as contract staff after completing her fellowship. There she worked to educate students, teachers, and the general public about nanotechnology through conferences, contests, networks, videos, and podcasts. She received her PhD in physics from Arizona State University in 2008 and MFA in Science and Natural History Filmmaking from Montana State University in 2011. When she’s not working to excite people about nanotechnology, Quinn enjoys watching YouTube science channels (sometimes with her son) and trying different flavors of potato chips.
