David T. Crouse has been appointed professor and chair of electrical & computer engineering at Clarkson University.

David T. CrouseHis research interests include the study and application of complex electromagnetic behavior in composite materials. Examples of applications of his research are solar cells, communication devices, advanced sensors and imaging systems, microwave and RF communication systems, chemical and biological sensors, and radar.

Crouse holds numerous patents, has published extensively, and speaks at invited talks around the country. He is a member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Optical Society, Materials Research Society, SPIE - the professional society for optics and photonics technology, and the American Physical Society.

Crouse brings a mix of industry and teaching experience to the post. Before coming to Clarkson, he was director of the National Science Foundation Industry/University Cooperative Research Center for Metamaterial; associate professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering at The Grove School of Engineering at the City College of New York; and director of the New York State Center for Advanced Technologies in Photonics Applications.

He is also founder and president of Phoebus Optoelectronics, which he founded in 2003 to transition technologies from his CUNY research laboratories to industry -- resulting in $9 million in funding from grants and contracts. His research is highly interdisciplinary and collaborative, with faculty and researchers from numerous fields of engineering and science involved in projects he leads.

Crouse received his bachelor of science degree in honors physics from Purdue University and his Ph.D. in electrical engineering from Cornell University.

Clarkson University educates the leaders of the global economy. One in five alumni already leads as an owner, CEO, VP or equivalent senior executive of a company. With its main campus located in Potsdam, New York, and additional graduate program and research facilities in the Capital Region and Beacon, N.Y., Clarkson is a nationally recognized research university with signature areas of academic excellence and research directed toward the world's pressing issues. Through more than 50 rigorous programs of study in engineering, business, arts, education, sciences and the health professions, 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 innovation with enterprise.
