Clarkson University Professor Suresh Dhaniyala Receives Graham Faculty Research Award
Potsdam, NY | Posted on May 14th, 2007
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."
Suresh Dhaniyala joined the Department of Mechanical and Aeronautical Engineering at 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.
Dhaniyala's 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 global climate.
Suresh's dual commitment to research and education has been recognized by NSF's CAREER Award. Suresh's research has been funded by the NSF, NYSERDA, NASA, the U.S. Navy, and the EPA.
