Provost's Newsletter: April 2021
Message From the Provost
I am pleased to share with you the spring edition of the provost's e-newsletter. Our students and faculty have persevered through a challenging winter and continue to pursue the interdisciplinary research and knowledge needed to solve the real-world problems facing us all. In this edition, we have highlighted just a few of their stories. I hope you enjoy reading them.
— Robyn Hannigan, Provost
Beth Ann Davies wanted her occupational therapy capstone project to positively impact the local community. For one lucky child, that means being able to hit the road — or sidewalk, rather — in a new set of wheels Davies created by adapting a toy car. Retrofitted with the help of fellow students, the car helps the child, who has disabilities, to play and get around more independently.
Here’s a Golden Knight who takes researching healthy global solutions to heart: doctoral student Robert Stanton has worked on projects to remove phosphorus from eutrophic waters and per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances from aqueous solutions. If that’s not impressive enough, his research productivity garnered him the American Chemical Society’s 2020 Graduate Student Award.
A relative newcomer to Clarkson, Simona Liguori is already making her mark as a Golden Knight on the international stage: she was recently appointed as an associate editor of the Chemical Engineering Journal. Liguori, an assistant professor in chemical & biomolecular engineering, joined Clarkson in 2020 from Worcester Polytechnic Institute.
From Clarkson to Mars
This past year has been a busy one for Professor Suresh Dhaniyala. At Clarkson, he applied his expertise in aerosol physics to ensure the campus stayed safe from airborne COVID-19 particles. Now, a project he’s worked on with NASA — the Mars 2020 program — has finally come to fruition.
