Distinguished University Professor
Dr. George S. Nolas is Distinguished University Professor of Physics at the University of South Florida. His research interest focuses on materials physics, and areas such as new materials synthesis and characterization, nano-scale properties of material, slow temperature electrical and thermal transport, structure-property relationships, and energy technologies. He is a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), and the American Physical Society. He was elected as an AAAS Fellow for contributions to materials and solid-state physics, particularly for the development of thermoelectric materials, and in investigating the fundamental physics of clathrate and clathrate-like materials. He is a charter member of the National Academy of Inventors (NAI) and serves on the Executive Committee of the USF Chapter of the NAI.
