Professor Weiqiang Ding

Clarkson University Professor
Weiqiang Ding Joins CAMP  

Professor 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.

The CAMP newsletter is published four times per year by the Center for Advanced Materials Processing, a NYSTAR-designated Center for Advanced Technology located at Clarkson University.
