Standards Committee Chair
Tyler L. Jaynes
Albany Medical College


Tyler Jaynes is a consultant, specializing in medical and bioethics. He has degrees from Utah Valley University, and working on Masters from Alden March Bioethics Institute at Albany Medical College. His research interests are in bioethics, medical ethics, and technology ethics; international jurisprudence in medical & technologic regulation and nanotechnology application & development. He is a member of IEEE and Chair, IEEE Nanotechnology Council Standards Committee (NTCSC) and Secretary, IEEE P2863™ – Recommended Practice for Organizational Governance of Artificial Intelligence – Standard Development Group

Industrial Advisory Committee Chair
Valentine Novosad
Argonne National Laboratory

Valentine Novosad is a Senior Scientist at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Argonne National Laboratory. He completed his Ph.D. studies on magneto-optics at the Institute for Low Temperature Physics & Engineering (Ukraine), and Laboratoire de Magnétisme Louis Néel (France) in 1998. During 1998–2001 he was a postdoctoral researcher at Tohoku University (Japan) where he studied geometric confinement effects in nanomagnets. He joined Argonne’s Materials Science Division in 2001.

Novosad’s current research is focused on the fundamental and applied studies of magnetic and superconducting thin films and patterned heterostructures.  He co-authored four US patents, 230+ research papers (h-index: 41). Fellow of American Physical Society and co-recipient of the University of Chicago’s Award & Medal for Distinguished Performance at Argonne National Laboratory.  Currently, Novosad,  IEEE Senior Member, serves as the IEEE Chicago Section Chair, the IEEE Nanotechnology Council and IEEE Magnetics Society AdCom member.

Regional Activities & Chapters Committee
Lan Fu
Australian National University

Lan Fu received her PhD degree from the Australia National University (ANU) in 2001 and is currently a Full Professor at the Research School of Physics, ANU. Prof. Lan Fu was the recipient of the IEEE Photonic Society Graduate Student Fellowship (2000), Australian Research Council (ARC) Postdoctoral Fellowship (2002), ARF/QEII Fellowship (2005) and Future Fellowship (2012). Professor Fu is a senior member of IEEE, IEEE/Photonics and Electron Devices Societies and was the past chair of the Photonics Society, Electron Devices Society and Nanotechnology Council Chapters of the IEEE ACT section. She is also the current member of the Australian Academy of Science National Committee on Materials Science and Engineering, Secretary of the Executive Committee of Australian Materials Research Society (AMRS), and Australian Research Council College of Experts. Lan Fu’s main research interests include design, fabrication and integration of optoelectronic devices (LEDs, lasers, photodetectors and solar cells) based on low-dimensional III-V compound semiconductor structures including quantum wells, self-assembled quantum dots and nanowires grown by metal-organic chemical vapour deposition (MOCVD).

TryNano Editor-in-Chief
James Spicer
The John Hopkins University

James Spicer is a professor of Materials Science and Engineering at The Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland. He is the chair of Materials Science and Engineering Program in the Engineering for Professionals Program and is a member of the Principal Professional Staff at The Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory. His research focuses on laser-material interactions for advanced processing and materials characterization including ultrafast studies of nanoscale thermal and acoustic transport, polymer matrix nanocomposite processing and characterization, optical and ultrasonic characterization of additively manufactured materials, development of opto-thermal barrier coatings for space probes and characterization of high-energy laser materials. He is a member of the IEEE Nanotechnology Council, the IEEE Ultrasonics, Ferroelectrics and Frequency Control Society and the IEEE Sensors Council. He is also a member of ASME, OSA, MRS and APS.
