The STORM lab was started in 2014 by Assistant Professor Mark L. Adams when he joined the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Auburn University. Dr. Adams earned his Bachelor of Electrical Engineering degree from Auburn in 1997. After graduating from Auburn, he worked in industry as an electronics/RF engineer before departing for graduate school. Dr. Adams completed his M.S. (2000) and Ph.D. (2004) in electrical engineering with an emphasis on biophysics and nanofabrication at the California Institute of Technology. He served as the Director of Nano-bioengineering for ENSCO, Inc. in Melbourne, Florida where he designed, developed and tested the Global Environmental Micro Sensor system. After ENSCO, Dr. Adams accepted the role of business development manager and MEMS development engineer for BioForce Nanosciences a start-up company located in Ames, Iowa. Dr. Adams then spent time as an assistant professor of electrical and computer engineering at the University of South Alabama before returning to industry to work for Johnson and Johnson in Somerville, New Jersey and eventually returning as Director of Engineering at ENSCO in Melbourne, Florida. Before accepting the faculty position at Auburn, Dr. Adams owned and directed Systems Visions LLC, a small company he founded to focus on commercializing technology he had previously developed throughout his career. He joined Auburn University as an assistant professor of electrical and computer engineering in 2014. His interests include smart materials, organic electronics, biologically inspired structures, electromagnetics, photonics, biotechnology, micro/nano fabrication and computer modeling.
