State University of New York Stony BrookDr. Alexander Orlov is an Associate Professor of Materials Science and Engineering at State University of New York, Stony Brook, USA. He is also a faculty member of the Consortium for Interdisciplinary Environmental Research, an affiliate faculty of Chemistry Department and affiliate faculty at the Institute for Advanced Computational Science. In addition Dr. Orlov is serving as the European Research Council (EU) and National Science Foundation (US) funded Visiting Professor of Chemistry at the University of Cambridge. His major research and teaching activities are in development of novel materials for energy generation, structural applications and environmental protection. A majority of his research focuses on synthesis of novel catalytic nanomaterials and on tuning their properties for environmental and energy related applications. Dr. Orlov’s research is supported by the National Science Foundation (NSF), the State of New York, the US Department of Education, the US Department of Transportation (via Regional Center), the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and Industry (totaling more than $3 million as PI or co-PI for the previous 5 years). He was awarded the National Science Foundation CAREER Award and the National Endowment for Science Technology and Arts CRUCIBLE award (UK). He was also selected to the Fellowship of the Royal Society of Chemistry (UK), the National Academy of Engineering (NAE) Frontiers of Engineering (US) and the NAE Frontiers of Engineering Education. In 2014 the Kavli Foundation and the National Academy of Sciences elected Dr. Orlov a Kavli Fellow. Before coming to Stony Brook Dr. Orlov was a Research Fellow in Science and Engineering at the University of Cambridge (UK), where he was also affiliated with the King's College. Dr. Orlov has 5 degrees from various European and the US institutions, including Doctoral and Master’s degrees in Physical and Environmental Chemistry from the University of Cambridge (UK) and Master’s degree in Environmental Engineering from the University of Michigan (US). He also holds Diploma in Economics from the London School of Economics.
