Dr. Karen S. Martirosyan is an Associate Professor in Physics and Astronomy Department at the University of Texas at Brownsville. He earned his BS and MS degree in Electrical and Biomedical Engineering from the State Engineering University of Armenia (SEUA) and PhD in Chemical Engineering from the SEUA and Russian Academy of Sciences. Dr. Martirosyan’s research interests are focusing on the design and fabrication of a novel advance multifunctional nano-tailored devices and systems for energy, environmental and biomedical applications. His research interest covers a broad spectrum of advanced materials, their design, fabrication, characterization and solid state phenomena in nanoscale. Active research is presently being carried out to explore gas dynamics and thermal processes in atomically engineered high energy density nanostructured materials and systems as well as developing magnetic, ferroelectric, and multiferroic materials and a variety of biomarkers, MRI contrast agents for biomedical imaging and smart drug delivery systems. He has been the principal investigator and co-investigator for several Federal (NSF, AF Research Lab, NIH) and State funded research projects. His work has resulted in more than 100 refereed research papers, 5 patents and over 120 presentations at national and international conferences. He is a fellow of 2010, 2011 and 2012 Air Force Summer Faculty Fellowship.
