Dr. Alexander Orlov is an Associate Professor of Materials Science and Chemical Engineering at State University of New York, Stony Brook, USA. He is also a faculty member of the Consortium for Interdisciplinary Environmental Research, an affiliate faculty of Chemistry Department and the Institute for Advanced Computational Science at Stony Brook University. In addition, he is a Visiting Professor of Chemistry at the University of Cambridge (UK) funded by the European Research Council (EU) and National Science Foundation (US). 
 
Dr. Orlov's principle research and teaching activities are in the development of novel materials for energy generation, structural applications and environmental protection. The majority of his research focuses on synthesis of novel catalytic nanomaterials and tuning their properties for environmental and energy related applications. In the last 7 years his research was supported by 10 National Science Foundation (NSF) grants, the State of New York, the US Department of Education, the US Department of Transportation (via Regional Center), the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and Industry (totaling about $4 million as PI or co-PI).   He was awarded the US National Science Foundation CAREER Award and the UK National Endowment for Science Technology and Arts CRUCIBLE award. He was also selected to the Fellowship of the UK Royal Society of Chemistry, the US National Academy of Engineering (NAE) Frontiers of Engineering (US), the EU-US (NAE) Frontiers of Engineering and was made Kavli Fellow in 2014 by the Kavli Foundation and the US National Academy of Sciences. In 2016 Dr. Orlov has been named Sigma Xi Distinguished Lecturer and was recognized by the State University of New York with Chancellor's Award of Excellence in Scholarship and Creative Activities. In addition to research awards, Dr. Orlov has received several teaching awards, including the 2015 NAE Frontiers of Engineering Education selection and the 2017 American Chemical Society Award for Incorporating Sustainability into Chemistry Education. Prior to 2008 he was recipient of over 20 different awards and fellowships from the University of Cambridge, University of Michigan, American Chemical Society and National Research Council among others.

Prior to Stony Brook Dr. Orlov was a Research Fellow in Science and Engineering at the University of Cambridge (UK), where he was also affiliated with the King's College. Dr. Orlov has 5 degrees from various European and US institutions, including Doctoral and Master’s degrees in Physical and Environmental Chemistry from the University of Cambridge (UK) and Master’s degree in Environmental Engineering from the University of Michigan (US). He also holds Diploma in Economics from the London School of Economics. Dr. Orlov is Chair of the American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE) Research and New Technology Committee (RANTC) and a member of the Executive Committee of the American Chemical Society (ACS) Environmental Chemistry Division. He is also a member of the US-EU working group on Risk Assessment of Nanomaterials under auspices of the US White House and European Commission cooperative program on nanotechnology research.
