ACerS is pleased to announce that Clive Randall has been selected for Volunteer Spotlight, a program through which we recognize a member who demonstrates outstanding service to The American Ceramic Society through volunteerism.
Randall is professor of materials science and engineering and director of the Materials Research Institute at The Pennsylvania State University. He has a B.Sc. (Honors) in physics from the University of East Anglia, U.K. (1983), and a Ph.D. in experimental physics from the University of Essex, U.K. (1987).
He was director for the Center for Dielectric Studies from 1997–2013 and co-director of the Center for Dielectrics and Piezoelectrics from 2013–2015 (now technical advisor). He has also served as the co-chair of the ACerS Humanitarian Network and helped create a video that introduces low-cost ceramic water filters and how they remove harmful bacteria and parasites from drinking water. Randall successfully submitted nominations for three of this years’ Society Awards that will be presented at the Awards Banquet in October.
Randall’s interests include discovery, processing, material physics, and compositional design of functional materials. Among his awards are ACerS Fellow, Academician of World Academy of Ceramics, IEEE Distinguished Lecturer, and honorary Fellow of the European Ceramic Society. Randall has a Google h-factor of 76 and over 20,000 citations.
We extend our deep appreciation to Randall for his service to our Society!
