Congratulations to UF Physics alum, Dr. Alexios Klironomos (PhD 2003, Alan Dorsey, advisor), on his new appointment as Deputy Division Director (DDD) for the Division of Materials Research (DMR), effective May 24, 2020.
Dr. Klironomos received his Ph.D. in Physics from the University of Florida in 2003. He is currently serving as the Acting Deputy Division Director for the Division of Materials Research (DMR), and for the past four years had served as the Program Director for the Condensed Matter and Materials Theory Program (CMMT). This highly complex and diverse program supports all theoretical aspects of fundamental research spanning the science of all DMR. Prior to his service at the NSF, he was employed as a scientific editor at the American Physical Society’s Physical Review B (PRB), which is the world’s largest dedicated physics journal. It publishes approximately 100 new research papers weekly, and it is the most highly cited journal in condensed matter physics.
Dr. Klironomos has also been recognized for his outstanding leadership in one of NSF’s 10 Big Ideas, the Quantum Leap, resulting in next generation sensing, modeling, and computing of particles and energy at atomic and subatomic scales, and in supporting the National Quantum Initiative, accelerating the development of quantum information science and technology applications across a number of US Science & Technology agencies.
