Professor Weiqiang Ding
Clarkson University Professor
Weiqiang Ding Joins CAMP
Weiqiang Ding is CAMP’s newest faculty member.
Dr. Weiqiang Ding joined the Department of Mechanical
and Aeronautical Engineering at Clarkson University
in the Fall of 2006. Prior to that time, he was a
postdoctoral fellow at Northwestern University. He
received his Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from
Northwestern University in 2005, a M.S. degree in
Mechanical Engineering from Northwestern University,
and a B.E. degree in Mechanical Engineering from Tsinghua
University, China. He is currently a member of the
American Society of Mechanical Engineers, the American
Physical Society, and the Materials Research Society.

Professor Ding’s research interests are in the fields of nanomaterials and nanocomposites. His work focuses on the mechanical property characterization of nanostructures, fabrication and characterization of nanocomposites. One of Professor Ding’s ongoing projects is the investigation of adhesion between micro/nano-scale particles and different substrate surfaces. See Figure 3. With a custom-built nanomanipulator, the surface interaction between a micro/nano-particle and a substrate is experimentally explored. His group is also working on the fabrication and characterization of nanomaterial-reinforced polymer composites.
