Liviu Movileanu studied physics (1985-1990) and received the Ph.D. degree in biophysics from the University of Bucharest (1997). He held postdoctoral positions at the University of Missouri (Kansas City, USA, 1997-1998) and the Texas A&M University Health Science Center (College Station, Tex, USA, 1999-2004). He serves currently as an Associate Professor of physics at Syracuse University (Syracuse, New York, NY, USA). He has published about 50 papers in international scientific journals and has delivered more than 100 invited talks worldwide. He is a Member of American Physical Society, American Biophysical Society, International Association of Nanotechnology, and American Association for the Advancement of Science. He is also affiliated to Structural Biology, Biochemistry and Biophysics Graduate Program (SB3) at Syracuse University, The Syracuse Biomaterials Institute (SBI), The SUNY Upstate Cancer Research Institute, and The Institute of Complex Adaptive Matter (ICAM-I2CAM). He has been awarded an Associate Member Fellowship of the Abdus Salam International Center for Theoretical Physics (1997), a Research Fellowship of the TEMPUS Program of the European Community (1997), and a Welcome Trust Fellowship for International Postdoctoral Fellows (1998). His research group is funded by the US National Science Foundation, the National Institutes of Health and Syracuse University. His research areas include single-molecule and membrane biophysics, chemical and synthetic biology, bionanotechnology and nanomedicine, biosensors and functional biomaterials, biological statistics, and numerical analysis of stochastic biological processes.
