Bohl awarded Clarkson’s Faculty Research Award


POTSDAM - Douglas G. Bohl, an associate professor of mechanical and aeronautical engineering in Clarkson University’s Wallace H. Coulter School of Engineering, was awarded the John W. Graham Jr. Faculty Research Award during the University’s 119th commencement ceremony today.

His research interests are in experimental fluid mechanics and in the development of optical diagnostic techniques.

Bohl has been a part of a multidisciplinary group that developed a novel experimental technical called Molecular Tagging Velocimetry, which can be used to study motion, heat transfer, and mixing in fluids. His experimental work focuses on unsteady aerodynamics, methods for controlling fluid flows, and mixing.

He has been recognized for his teaching, having received the Michigan State University Excellence in Teaching Citation and the Clarkson University Tau Beta Pi Teaching Award.

Bohl includes undergraduates in his research activities and has supervised independent research projects for more than 25 undergraduate students. Currently, he is working with a team that includes faculty, graduate and undergraduate students in a collaborative effort with the United States Luge Association. The goal of this work is to develop the next generation luge sleds for the 2014 Winter Olympics.

He has written numerous journal articles and conference proceedings. Bohl and his students have presented their findings at professional conferences and have given invited seminars throughout North America.

Bohl’s research funding, totaling over $800,000, includes grants from the National Science Foundation, Air Force Office of Scientific Research, the Air Force Research Laboratory at Edwards Air Force Base, Naval Sea Systems Command, and multiple industrial sources. In 2009, Bohl was awarded the prestigious NSF CAREER grant.

Bohl has been a faculty member at Clarkson University since 2006. He received his Ph.D. in mechanical engineering from Michigan State University in 2002. Following graduation, he worked as a research assistant professor at the U.S. Naval Academy and as a research engineer at the Naval Surface Warfare Center Indian Head Division.
