Greg Carman received the Ph.D. degree from Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University in 1991. He joined the Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Department at the University of California, Los Angeles, in 1991. He is the director of a new National Science Foundation Engineering Research Center entitled Translational Applications of Nanoscale Multiferroic Materials (TANMS) and is engineering director of the Center for Advanced Surgical and Interventional Technology in the Department of Surgery at UCLA. He is an associate editor for the Journal of Intelligent Material Systems Structures and for Smart Materials and Structures. He received the Northrop Grumman Young Faculty Award in 1995 and three best paper awards from the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) in 1996, 2001, and 2007. He was elected Fellow of the ASME in 2003 and was awarded the ASME Adaptive Structures and Material Systems Prize honoring his contributions to smart materials and structures in 2004. In 2015 SPIE honored him with the Smart Structures and Materials (SSM) Lifetime Achievement Award. Presently his research interests focus on analytical modeling, fabrication, and testing of multiferroic (magneto-electric) materials and developing devices for medical applications.
