About Author

Roman Gr. Maev received his Ph.D. from the Physical Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences in 1973 and his D.Sc. in acoustic microscopy from the Russian Academy of Sciences, Moscow, in 2002. From 1994 to 1997, he held a post as Director of the Acoustic Microscopy Center of the Russian Academy of Sciences, then established the Centre for Imaging Research and Advanced Material Characterization at the University of Windsor, Canada. He is currently a Full Faculty Professor at the Physics Department at the same University and since 2001 the Chairholder of the NSERC/DaimlerChrysler/Industrial Research Chair in Applied Solid State Physics and Material Characterization. Professor Maev's research interests focus on the fundamentals of condensed matter, physical acoustics, ultrasonic imaging, and acoustic microscopy. He has published numerous books, more than 300 scientific papers, and holds twenty patents.
