Kerop D. Janoyan has been appointed executive officer of the Clarkson University Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, effective July 1.

"I am confident Prof. Janoyan’s experiences and recognition among Clarkson alumni will serve him well when moving the CEE Department toward achieving even higher Article Photolevels of academic excellence," said Stefan J. Grimberg, chair of the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering.

Janoyan joined the Clarkson faculty in 2002, after receiving his Ph.D. in civil engineering from University of California, Los Angeles.

He has been recognized numerous times by Clarkson’s Wallace H. Coulter School of Engineering for his excellence in teaching undergraduate and graduate courses. Janoyan was elected by-fellow of Churchill College at Cambridge University where he spent his sabbatical stay in 2009. He has mentored three Ph.D., seven M.S., five M.E and 16 undergraduate research students.

Janoyan has served as a member of a number of technical committees and has chaired many conference sessions of SPIE, the International Society of Optical Engineering. He is a member of American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), International Association for Bridge Maintenance and Safety (IABMAS), Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE), and is the Clarkson University representative to the Transportation Research Board of the National Academies.

Janoyan’s research has focused on a broad range of topics, including performance monitoring of infrastructure using wireless sensor networks, innovative bridge design and evaluation, dynamic soil-structure interaction in foundation engineering, laboratory and field measurements in geotechnical and structural engineering, and advanced sensor development and measurement tools for civil, environmental, and industrial applications.

He has authored more than 17 archival publications and a book chapter, in addition to many conference proceedings. He has given a number of invited presentations in the U.S. and around the globe. Janoyan’s work has been funded by the Federal Highway Administration, the New York State Department of Transportation, the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority, the Syracuse Center of Excellence, the NYSTAR Center of Advanced Material Processing, General Motors Powertrain, John Deere, General Electric, Cooper Crouse-Hinds, and several other agencies and industrial partners.

Clarkson University launches leaders into the global economy. One in six alumni already leads as a CEO, VP or equivalent senior executive of a company. Located just outside the Adirondack Park in Potsdam, N.Y., Clarkson is a nationally recognized research university for undergraduates with select graduate programs in signature areas of academic excellence directed toward the world’s pressing issues. Through 50 rigorous programs of study in engineering, business, arts, sciences and health sciences, the entire learning-living community spans boundaries across disciplines, nations and cultures to build powers of observation, challenge the status quo, and connect discovery and engineering innovation with enterprise.
