Dr. Glenn J. Martyna received his Ph.D. from the Columbia University and subsequently became a NSF Postdoctoral Fellow in Computational Science and Engineering at the University of Pennsylvania. He was a tenured faculty member at Indiana University, Bloomington before joining IBM Research and was later named an Honorary Professor of Physics at The University of Edinburgh, UK. In 2016, he was an Institute for Pure and Applied Mathematics Senior Fellow in machine learning.
Dr. Martyna’s research is focused on the atomistic modeling of soft condensed matter and materials systems as well as novel device physics, in addition to his interest in physics based computational methodology development. He is currently working to combine physical measurements with theory and machine learning to study and discover antimicrobial peptides, and to develop a new post-CMOS technology based on strain transductions that promises low power and high speed. He has co-authored around 140 papers several of which are citations classics - papers with over 1000 citations. Dr. Martyna has about 16,000 citations total and a h-index of 46. A select number of his publications and patents are given on the site and a complete list on his Google Scholar profile.
