The Top 50 listing has links to all of Karim's 51 articles. The first two from 1987 are articles for which Karim was the first author: "Polarization-encoded Optical Shadow-casting Logic Units: Design" and "Refracting System for Annular Laser Beam Transformation." The 51st entry from 2005 is one that Karim co-authored, "Biometric Recognition Systems: Introduction."

Karim, who joined ODU in 2004 as vice president for research, has a multidisciplinary background and holds graduate degrees in physics and electrical engineering. He also has been elected six times as a Fellow of science and technology organizations, more than any other ODU faculty member or administrator.
