Find a Researcher

TPO, in partnership with the NIST Public Affairs Office, is pleased to introduce Find a Researcher, a list of expertise to locate a prospective researcher, collaborator, colleague, or expert. This service will help you connect with the right NIST researcher based on their areas of expertise.  Making professional connections is a way to promote NIST technologies, encourage scientific collaboration, foster entrepreneurship, and further the mission of federal technology transfer and commercialization.

Previously, one could search for a NIST colleague via their name, e-mail address, or organization. Now included is the capability to search by a list of expertise located in a drop-down menu. Make a selection and a list of NIST researchers associated with that particular expertise will be provided along with their organization and email address. Feel free to reach out to any of our distinguished researchers to make a connection!

A list of NIST researchers involved in that field will be provided. Select a researcher to obtain their profile and contact information. Feel free to contact them directly!
