Mark Mirotnik Joins ECE Faculty

Mark Mirotznik has joined the faculty in the University of Delaware’s Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering as an associate professor effective September 1, 2009.  Mirotznik was formerly a faculty member in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at The Catholic University of America in Washington D.C., where he was also director of the Applied Electromagnetic and Optics Laboratory.

Mirotznik’s research interests include computational electromagnetics and optics, nano- and micro-scale photonic devices, bioelectromagnetics and biomedical instrumentation. He has published over 90 peer-reviewed journal and conference papers in these areas.

“Professor Mark Mirotznik brings a cutting-edge research program in nano-scale photonics and electromagnetics, especially as applied to bio- and imaging-related problems,” says Department Chair Kenneth Barner. “In addition to an extremely active research program, he has a wealth of experience in building educational collaborations that will be vital to the growth of our collaborative efforts with the Aberdeen Proving Ground.”

In addition to his teaching and research activities on the UD campus, Mirotznik will be assisting the University with the development and direction of on-site graduate degree programs at the Army Research Laboratory at Aberdeen, Maryland. 

“The relocation of personnel from Ft. Monmouth has created a need for continuing education in this area, and the University of Delaware is well-positioned to help meet that need,” Mirotznik says.  “It will be a real benefit for the Army’s employees to be able to take classes and complete their degree requirements at their own work site.”

Mirotznik earned M.S. degrees in electrical engineering and biomedical engineering at the University of Pennsylvania in 1991 and a Ph.D. in biomedical engineering in 1992, also at the University of Pennsylvania.

His honors include the Maryland Science Center Distinguished Young Engineer Award (1997), Catholic University School of Engineering Teacher of the Year Award (1998), Alpha Delta Gamma Fraternity Instructor of the Month Award (1998) and the Charles H. Kaman Award for Excellence in Research (2004).
