James Marti is Associate Program Director and External Affairs Coordinator for the Nanofabrication Center (NFC) at the University of Minnesota. The NFC is a multidisciplinary lab supporting research and product development in the areas of micro- and nanoelectronics, sensors, nanostructured materials, and microelectromechanical systems (MEMS). Dr. Marti also teaches courses on these subjects as part of the Nanoscience Technology program at Dakota County Technical College. Prior to joining the Center, Dr. Marti conducted research on atmospheric nanoparticles at academic and government labs, and served as R&D director for several small companies with a nanotechnology product focus. A physicist by training, his primary scientific interest has been the physics, chemistry, and characterization of micron- and nanometer-scale particles, particle systems, and related materials.
