Dhaniyala and his group are working on developing several next-generation instruments for improved real-time characterization of submicron aerosol and nanoparticles. These instruments, in combination with modeling efforts, are being used to better understand the effect of particles on human health and global climate.

Dhaniyala has received more than $1.2 million in funding from several agencies including, the NSF, NYSERDA, NASA, the U.S. Navy and the EPA. Dhaniyala's dual commitment to research and teaching has been recognized by the CAREER Award from the National Science Foundation. He has also received Clarkson University's John W. Graham Jr. Faculty Research Award.

Prior to joining Clarkson, Dhaniyala was a post-doctoral scholar in Chemical Engineering at California Institute of Technology. He received his Ph.D. in mechanical engineering from the University of Minnesota (1998) and has a master of science degree from the University of Delaware (1994), and a bachelor of technology degree from the Indian Institute of Technology in Madras, India (1992).

Dhaniyala is a director on the board of the American Association for Aerosol Research (AAAR). He also served as the education committee chair and tutorial chair in AAAR in 2005 and 2006, respectively. He serves as the faculty advisor for Clarkson's AAAR student chapter.

Clarkson University crosses the boundaries of disciplines, nations and cultures in order for discovery, engineering innovation and enterprise to come together. As a result, faculty and graduates grasp the full impact of their calling, direct their research to the world's pressing issues and lead with confidence and distinction. One in seven alumni is already a CEO or other senior executive. Located in Potsdam, N.Y., just outside the six-million-acre Adirondack Park, Clarkson is home to 3,000 students preparing for rewarding careers through 50 rigorous programs of study in engineering, business, arts, science, and health sciences, as well as unparalleled outdoor recreation and life experiences beyond the classroom.
