Clark is an expert in the science of acoustics and in bionanomanufacturing. His work in these areas has led to 100 journal publications and earned him awards including the Lindsey award of the Acoustical Society of America, the National Science Foundation Career Program Award, the Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers, and the NASA Group Achievement Award. He is a fellow of both the Acoustical Society of America and the American Society of Mechanical Engineers. During six years as senior associate dean at Duke, he oversaw hiring for the implementation of the Pratt School’s strategic plan, helped to double the number of women on the faculty and triple the research expenditures. In the recent year while serving as dean, he initiated curricular innovations for non-engineering students and presided over fundraising.
