Minerals Technologies Inc. recently announced that its board of directors has elected Robert L.

Clark was named to his present position on 2008. Before joining the University of Rochester, he spent 16 years at Duke University, where he was appointed assistant professor in 1992.

A holder of three patents relating to acoustics and co-author of Adaptive Structures: Dynamics and Control, he has founded and consulted to several start-up companies, and has published widely in journals. Clark’s research interests include dynamic systems and control, acoustics, nanoscience, and nanoengineering.
