SensorMetrix personnel brings a variety of backgrounds and exceptional expertise to provide the core competencies necessary for the needs of our customers.
Dr. Anthony F. Starr - Founder, President & CEO
Dr. Starr founded SensorMetrix in 2003. SensorMetrix seeks to develop EM-related materials and technology for governmental and defense clients. Prior to SensorMetrix, Dr. Starr had been actively involved in commercializing advanced sensing and electromagnetic related technologies in diverse industries such as superconducting electronics, biotechnology, and structural sensing. With the emergence of metamaterials near the start of the new millennium, Dr. Starr joined the effort to understand and expand their technical roles in next generation technologies. He contributed to the first experimental demonstration of an electromagnetic cloak and the first IR perfect absorber, and he has spearheaded efforts to develop structural metamaterials and applications. Dr. Anthony Starr received his Bachelor’s in Physics from Cornell University and his Masters/PhD from UC San Diego.
Dr. Tatiana Starr - Director of IR Applications
Dr. Starr is a co-founder of SensorMetrix. Her technology background includes development of infrared metamaterials and custom systems for thermal, electromagnetic and magnetic sensing applications.
She contributed to the first experimental demonstration of an IR metamaterial perfect absorber and development of large area IR metamaterial films. Dr. Starr was a lead researcher to develop IR directive emission devices. She is currently involved in the development of IR selective emitters for a range of applications. Prior to SensorMetrix Dr. Starr was a VP at Tristan Technologies developing cryogenic magnetic sensing systems for biomedical, NDE and UXO detection. Dr. Starr received her BS and Ph.D. degrees from Voronezh Polytechnic Institute and completed a post-graduate research fellowship at UC San Diego.
Timothy Perram - Director Of Engineering
Mr. Perram joined SensorMetrix in 2004. He has over 12 years of experience in the field of metamaterials research, design, fabrication, and measurement. His background also includes composites fabrication, self-healing carbon fiber composite development, manufacturing engineering, mechanical design/prototyping, and machining. He is currently involved in developing fabrication processes for advanced chaff countermeasures and metamaterial-based integrated composites, including electromagnetic cloaking. Mr. Perram received his BS in Physics from UC San Diego.
