Joshua Robinson

The Pennsylvania State University, USA

Dr. Robinson obtained his B.S. degree in Physics with minors in Chemistry and Mathematics from Towson University in 2001. He received his doctorate degree from The Pennsylvania State University in Materials Science and Engineering in 2005. In 2012 he joined the Penn State Materials Science and Engineering Department, and subsequently co-founded the Center for Two-Dimensional and Layered Materials. In July 2015, he became Co-Director of the NSF I/UCRC Center for Atomically Thin Multifunctional Coatings (ATOMIC), and in 2016 he became the Director of User Programs for the NSF-funded 2D crystal Consortium at Penn State. He has authored or co-authored over 100 peer reviewed journal publications with a significant focus on low dimensional electronic materials. He has patents on chemical and neutron detection, and a variety of pending patents related to 2D materials. His recent awards include the NSF-CAREER (2015), The G. Montgomery and Marion Hall Mitchell Award for Innovative Teaching (2015), Student Choice MatSE Faculty of the Year (2014), Penn State Miller Faculty Fellowship (2013), Oakridge Young Faculty Award (2013), Corning Faculty Fellowship (2013), Rustum and Della Roy Innovation in Materials Award (2012), Alan Berman Research Publication Award (2007), and a National Research Council Postdoctoral Fellowship (2005).
