Meyya Meyyappan, Ph.D., Director of the Center for Nanotechnology as well as Senior Scientist at NASA Ames Research Center in Moffett Field, CA. He is a founding member of the Interagency Working Group on Nanotechnology (IWGN) established by the Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP). The IWGN is responsible for putting together the National Nanotechnology Initiative.

Dr. Meyyappan’s group, consisting of about 60 scientists, has been engaged in various aspects of nanotechnology (see http://www.ipt.arc.nasa.gov). He has published over 160 articles in peer-reviewed journals and has given over 100 Plenary/Keynote/Invited Presentations in nanotechnology subjects at various national and international technical, business and educational conferences and numerous Invited Talks at universities, non-profit organizations and companies across the world. He has edited and authored a text book “Carbon Nanotubes: Science and Applications”, published by CRC Press in 2004.

Dr. Meyyappan is a Fellow of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE). He is Fellow of the Electrochemical Society (ECS). In addition, he is a member of American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME), Materials Research Society (MRS), American Vacuum Society (AVS) and American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE). He is the IEEE Distinguished Lecturer on Nanotechnology and ASME’s Distinguished Lecturer on Nanotechnology. He is currently the President-elect of the IEEE Nanotechnology Council.

For his work and leadership in nanotechnology, he has been awarded NASA’s Outstanding Leadership Medal and Arthur Flemming Award by the Arthur Flemming Foundation and George Washington University. For his contributions to nanotechnology education and training, he has been awarded the 2003-2004 Engineer of the Year award by the San Francisco section of the AIAA (American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics). In November 2004, he has been awarded President’s Meritorious Award for his contributions to nanotechnology
