in Social Psychology from Stanford University in 2007, mentored by Claude Steele and Carol Dweck.
She currently focuses on three programs of research.
A diverse range of projects are currently pursued in the group: Inorganic Nanoparticle Fabrication and Functionalization."Finely-divided metals" such as gold, silver and copper have been known since Roman times for their brilliant colors.
These brilliant colors arise fundamentally from the interaction of light with the conduction band electrons in these nanoscale metal particles, producing what is known as a plasmon resonance at particular optical frequencies.
From 1990-1993, she was first an NSF and then an NIH postdoctoral fellow at the California Institute of Technology.
Our primary goal is to develop inorganic nanomaterials for biological and energy-related applications, and understand the chemical interactions of these nanomaterials with their surroundings.On-particle reactions are being explored to improve the compatibility and ease of processing of these materials.Cellular Imaging, Chemical Sensing, and Photothermal Therapy Using Gold Nanorods. degrees, one in chemistry and one in biochemistry, from the University of Illinois in 1986. In August 2009 she joined the faculty of the Department of Chemistry at the University of Illinois. From 1993-2009 Professor Murphy was a faculty member in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at the University of South Carolina. In 2009, she joined the faculty at the University of Illinois at Chicago, and in 2012, Dr. She was a National Science Foundation Postdoctoral Fellow at Northwestern University from 2007-2009.Authors: Aronson S, Babb L, Ames D, Gibbs RA, Venner E, Connelly JJ, Marsolo K, Weng C, Williams MS, Hartzler AL, Liang WH, Ralston JD, Devine EB, Murphy S, Chute CG, Caraballo PJ, Kullo IJ, Freimuth RR, Rasmussen LV, Wehbe FH, Peterson JF, Robinson JR, Wiley K, Overby Taylor C. Our research is at the interface of materials chemistry, inorganic chemistry, biophysical chemistry and nanotechnology.These are questions that we seek to address using a battery of analytical, physical, and biochemical techniques.Mary Murphy is Professor of Psychology at Indiana University. Murphy moved her lab to Indiana University where she is currently Assistant Professor in the Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences. Murphy’s research focuses on developing and testing theories about how people’s social identities and group memberships interact with the contexts they encounter to affect their thoughts, feelings, behaviors, physiology, and motivation.
