Manghnani was named Fellow of The American Ceramics Society. He is engaged in research and teaching in high-pressure mineral physics and materials science. Manghnani’s research work, which is incorporated in more than 200 published papers, has focused on gaining fundamental understanding of the physico-chemical and thermodynamic properties and the composition-structure-property systematic in Earth materials, ceramics, thin films of hard materials, silicate glasses and melts and metals. His contributions have had a profound impact in high-pressure mineral physics, armor ceramics, silicate glasses and melts. Read the news release.
Benham began his three‐year term on the National Council for Accreditation of Coaching Education’s Board of Directors. “We are very pleased to have such an accomplished coaching educator and coach like Bob to be part of NCACE’s Board of Directors for the upcoming three years,” says Christopher Hickey, NCACE executive director. “Bob’s previous work in youth sports research and coaches education at the Institute for the Study of Youth Sport at Michigan State University and his current work in health and physical education with the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa brings a rich and diverse background to our efforts to improve coaching quality across the United States.” Read the news release.
