Four Clark School Professors Named Distinguished University Professor

In 2016, four of the 10 Distinguished University Professors named by the University of Maryland are Clark School professors.

Distinguished University Professor is an official title, and the highest academic honor that the University of Maryland confers upon a faculty member. It is reserved for a small number of exceptionally distinguished scholars.

Distinguished University Professors are selected from faculty who have been recognized nationally and internationally for the importance of their scholarly or creative achievements and who have demonstrated the breadth of interest characteristically encompassed by the traditional role of scholar, teacher, and public servant.

The Clark School's 2016 Distinguished University Professors are:

Mikhail Anisimov, professor of chemical and biomolecular engineering with a joint appointment in the Institute for Physical Science and Technology (IPST).

Anisimov's research interests are in mesoscopic and nanoscale thermodynamics, critical phenomena, and phase transitions in soft matter. 

William Bentley, Robert E. Fischell Distinguished Professor and Director of the Robert E. Fischell Institute for Biomedical Devices.

Bentley's research focuses on the development of molecular tools that facilitate the expression of biologically active proteins.

Rama Chellappa, Minta Martin Professor of Engineering and Chair of the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering.

Chellappa's research includes signal and image processing, computer vision, pattern recognition, multi-dimension stochastic processes, statistical interference, image analysis, robust and secure biometrics, and artificial intelligence in computer vision. 

Gary Rubloff, Minta Martin Professor of Engineering, Director of the Maryland NanoCenter, and Director of the Nanostructures for Electrical Energy Storage Research Center with a joint appointment in the Institute for Systems Research (ISR).

Rubloff's research has included solid state physics, surface physics and chemistry, interfaces, semiconductor materials and processing science and technology, process diagnostics and modeling, manufacturing science, combinatorial materials science, biomaterials, and bioMEMS.

Congratulations to these outstanding Clark School faculty!
