Professor Carman joined the Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering Department at the University of California Los Angeles in 1991. He is the Director of the NSF Engineering Research Center entitled Translational Applications of Nanoscale Multiferroic Material Systems TANMS and is Co-Executive Director of the Center for Advanced Surgical and Interventional Technology in the Department of Surgery at UCLA. Professor Carman has served as chairman for the Adaptive Structures and Material Systems of the ASME (2000-2002), holds a position as Associate editor for the Journal of Intelligent Material Systems Structures, and Smart Materials and Structures. He was awarded the Northrop Grumman Young Faculty in 1995 and three best paper awards from the ASME in 1996, 2001, and 2007. In 2003 he was elected to the grade of Fellow in ASME and awarded the ASME Adaptive Structures and Material Systems Prize honoring his contributions to smart materials and structures in 2004. In 2015 SPIE honored him with the SSM Lifetime Achievement Award and in 2016 was invited to be the Distinguish Lecture for IEEE Magnetic Society. Presently his research interests focus on analytical modeling, fabrication, and testing of magnetoelectric materials and developing devices for medical applications.
