CAMP Professor Suresh Dhaniyala Receives the Graham Faculty Research Award
Professor Suresh Dhaniyala
CAMP Professor Suresh Dhaniyala, of Clarkson University’s Department of Mechanical and Aeronautical Engineering, was awarded the John W. Graham Jr. Faculty Research Award during the University's 114th commencement ceremony held in May.
Created in 1974 by the family of the late John W. Graham Jr., president of Clarkson University from 1966-1974, this $1,500 award is presented annually to "a faculty member showing promise in engineering, business, liberal arts or scientific research."
Professor Dhaniyala joined Clarkson University in 2002. Prior to this appointment, he was a post-doctoral scholar in chemical engineering at California Institute of Technology.
He has a Ph.D. in mechanical engineering from the University of Minnesota, an M.S. from the University of Delaware, and a B.Tech from the Indian Institute of Technology, Madras. His research interests are in the fields of nanoparticle characterization, aerosol instrumentation, aerosol sampling, and atmospheric aerosol measurements. He and his group are working on developing several next generation instruments for improved real-time characterization of submicron aerosol and nanoparticles. These instruments will be combined with modeling efforts to better understand the effect of particles on human health and the global climate. Funding sources for Suresh’s projects include NSF, NYSERDA, NASA, the U.S. Navy, and the EPA.
Professor Dhaniyala previously received the NSF CAREER Award and the Rosemount Instrumentation Award. He is a member of the American Association for Aerosol Research (AAAR), the American Geophysical Union (AGU), and the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME).
