Prof. Davé is currently a Distinguished Professor in the Department of Chemical, Biological and Pharmaceutical Engineering, at New Jersey Institute of Technology. He is also the Site-Leader, Thrust Leader and a Test-bed Leader, NSF Engineering Research Center on Structured Organic Particulate Systems. His research contributions include 120+ journal papers, seven issued and dozen pending patents. He has granted 25 PhDs to students at NJIT, six of those students are currently in US academia. His main research interests in Engineered Particulates include: synthesis of nano-particles and engineering of structured particle composites; modeling and development of novel techniques for dry particle coating, film-coated particles, granules and engineered particulates; nano-particle mixing, and nano-particle fluidization; powder flow and particle-particle interactions/cohesion; and DEM simulations.
He is the recipient of awards and honors such as: AAPS Arden Conference presentations on Mechanical Characterization and Predictive Tools for Rapid Tablet Product Development, March 4-6, 2013, Rockville, MD, and on Poor Bio-Availability Drugs, June 12-13, 2010, China; Delivery of the Leslie J. Ford Lecture: Dry Particle Coating – Synthesis and Characterization of Engineered Particulates with Tailored Properties, at Particle Technology UK Forum IV, The University of Leeds, Leeds, UK, April 11, 2002; and K. S. Fu Award from North American Fuzzy Information Processing Society (NAFIPS), June 1999.
