Dr. Mounir Laroussi received his Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. He now holds a Professor position at the Electrical & Computer Engineering Department of Old Dominion University (ODU) and is the Director of ODU’s Plasma Engineering & Medicine Institute (PEMI).Dr. Laroussi’s research interests are in the physics and applications of non-equilibrium gaseous discharges including the biomedical applications of low temperature plasma (LTP). He designed and developed numerous novel LTP devices such as the resistive barrier discharge (RBD) and the plasma pencil. He is co-discoverer of guided ionization waves in low temperature plasma jets. Dr. Laroussi is also widely known for conducting the first pioneering experiments on the use of low temperature atmospheric pressure plasmas for biomedical applications and for highly contributing to the establishment of the interdisciplinary field of “Plasma Medicine”. For his scientific achievements in the field of low temperature plasmas and their biomedical applications he was elevated to the grade of Fellow by IEEE in 2009, and was awarded the 2012 IEEE-NPSS Merit Award, as well as other prestigious awards.
