Paul R. Chiarot

Associate Professor, Chair

Mechanical Engineering


Chiarot received the BASc, MASc, and PhD degrees in mechanical engineering from the University of Toronto and was a post-doctoral research associate at the University of Rochester. He joined the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Binghamton University (State University of New York) in 2011 where he directs the Microfluidics and Multiphase Flow Laboratory. He was promoted to associate professor in 2017.

His research interests include additive manufacturing using electrospray printing and continuous ink jet technology, microfluidics with biology and energy applications, synthetic cells/vesicles, and the fluid mechanics of the brain.

Chiarot has published over 30 papers in peer-reviewed journals and conference proceedings, and he has one issued U.S. patent. Along with his collaborators, his research has been supported by the NSF, ACS, NIH, and industry. He received the NSF CAREER Award in 2016.
