Santokh Badesha, a Xerox fellow at the Xerox Corporation, has been chosen to chair Clarkson University’s Center for Advanced Materials Processing (CAMP) Industrial Advisory Board. Xerox is a corporate sponsor for CAMP.
The board’s main role is to review and evaluate all aspects of CAMP’s programs and activities and to provide advice to CAMP’s administration in regard to future policies, projects and emerging areas of research, funding, and economic development.
The advisory board meets twice a year, coincident with CAMP meetings and consists of representatives from companies collaborating with CAMP, as well as several senior CAMP faculty members.
Over the years, Badesha has served as a technical point of contact for numerous research projects at CAMP, providing valuable guidance and advice. He holds many honors and awards including 165 U.S. patents and an honorary doctorate from Clarkson University that was presented in 2007.
Clarkson University launches leaders into the global economy. One in six alumni already leads as a CEO, VP or equivalent senior executive of a company. Located just outside the Adirondack Park in Potsdam, N.Y., Clarkson is a nationally recognized research university for undergraduates with select graduate programs in signature areas of academic excellence directed toward the world’s pressing issues. Through 50 rigorous programs of study in engineering, business, arts, sciences and health sciences, the entire learning-living community spans boundaries across disciplines, nations and cultures to build powers of observation, challenge the status quo, and connect discovery and engineering innovation with enterprise.
