Ivan Ermanoski is a research professor at Arizona State University. He graduated from the University of Belgrade, Serbia, with his BSc in physics thesis work “Nanoscale Studies of a Thin Layer of Silver on HOPG”. His earned his PhD in physics at Rutgers—“Nanoscale Properties of Planar and Faceted Ir(210)”—before spending two years as a postdoctoral fellow at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), working on extreme UV lithography (EUVL). From 2007 to 2018 he was a postdoctoral fellow and then a staff member at Sandia. His most recent work has been in the field of solar thermochemical fuel production, and in iodine sorption characterization.
