"Dr. Carim's is an expert in microstructural and microchemical characterization of materials," noted Bart Romanowicz, Executive Director of the Nano Science & Technology Institute, producers of Nanotech 2007. "He has authored or coauthored over 85 research publications in these areas, including two book chapters and has edited two volumes. We're very excited to have Dr. Carim speak in what will be a ‘must attend' session for anyone interested in federal nanotechnology funding."

Dr. Carim joined the Materials Sciences and Engineering Division in the Office of Basic Energy Sciences at DOE in September 2001 as a Program Manager with primary responsibility for activities in the structure and composition of materials. He spent two years on the faculty of The University of New Mexico and then went to Penn State, where he spent eleven years on the faculty, most recently as Chair of the Electronic and Photonic Materials Program, prior to joining DOE. He previously held summer positions at Bell Laboratories and the Xerox Palo Alto Research Center, did graduate work under support from Philips Research Laboratories Sunnyvale, held a post-doc at the Philips Natuurkundig Laboratorium in The Netherlands, and also had a sabbatical appointment at the Carnegie Institution of Washington.
