Professor Alexander A. Balandin
Applied Physics from the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology (MIPT), Russia. He received his PhD (1997) degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Notre Dame, USA. In 1999 he joined the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, UC Riverside, where he is presently UC Presidential Chair Professor of Electrical Engineering, Director of the Nano-Device Laboratory (NDL), Director of the Phonon Optimized Engineered Materials (POEM) Center, Associate Director of DOE EFRC Spins and Heat in Nanoscale Electronic Systems (SHINES) and Founding Chair of Materials Science and Engineering (MS&E) Program. Professor Balandin’s research interests are in the area of advanced materials, nanostructures and devices for electronic applications. He is recognized as a pioneer of the graphene thermal field and one of the leaders of the phonon engineering field. In 2008, Professor Balandin experimentally discovered the extremely high thermal conductivity of graphene and explained it theoretically. He also proposed a range of thermal management applications of graphene – from thermal interface materials to graphene-based lateral heat spreaders. Professor Balandin is a recipient of The MRS Medal (2013) and IEEE Pioneer of Nanotechnology Award (2011) for his graphene, phonon engineering and nanotechnology research. He was also recognized by the ONR Young Investigator Award, NSF CAREER Award and Merrill Lynch Innovation Award. He is elected Fellow of MRS, APS, IEEE, OSA, SPIE and AAAS. He published ~200 journal papers (h-index: 69, total citations: 24,500). He presently serves as Deputy Editor-in-Chief of Applied Physics Letters for area of Nanoscale Science and Technology.
