Detailed Information

About Me: 

Dr. Mihai Dimian is currently Associate Professor at Howard University in Washington DC, USA. He received his Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from the University of Maryland at College Park, USA in 2005 and a post-doctoral fellowship in Applied Mathematics at Max Planck Institute, Germany. His research interests are at the interface between mathematics, physics and electrical engineering and include topics from applied electromagnetics, optoelectronics and nanoelectronics with a special emphasize on memory phenomena and the effects of noise and fluctuations in nonlinear systems. He is the recipient of 2014 Romanian Academy Award in Physical Sciences and of various research and teaching awards from American and Romanian universities. Since 2015, he was appointed as member of National Council for Scientific Research by Romanian Ministry of Education and Scientific Research. He served as a Chair of the Assessment Committee in Electrical and Computer Engineering Department leading the process of accreditation of Computer Engineering Program and successful ABET evaluations of Electrical and Computer Engineering Programs.
