Shalaev, the Robert and Anne Burnett Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering and Professor of Biomedical Engineering at Purdue University, specializes in metamaterials, transformation optics, nanophotonics and plasmonics. He made pioneering contributions to the optics of fractal and percolation composites, their applications for Surface Enhanced Raman Spectroscopy, and to the field of optical metamaterials, including first experimental observation of negative refractive index in the optical range and magnetism across the entire visible range.

Prof. V. Shalaev received several awards for his research in the field of nanophotonics and metamaterials. He is a Fellow of the American Physical Society, of The International Society for Optical Engineering, and of the Optical Society of America. Prof. Shalaev is a Co-/Editor for five books in the area of nano-optics and an Editorial Board Member for a number of research journals. He co-/authored two books, twenty invited book contributions, and about 300 research publications. One of the books, Electrodynamics of Metamaterials, is authoritative in the field of plasmonic nanostructure research. He is also on the editorial board of the peer reviewed journal Metamaterials, along with a number of other notable board members who have significantly contributed to metamaterial research.
