About Professor Yoginder Paul Chugh
“I have enjoyed the challenge to develop the youngest mining engineering department in the USA. Based on lot of unbiased self assessment over the years, I can say with lot of confidence that I have abilities to develop good organizations with strong foundations, and develop effective strategic plans based on input from different constituencies and my own assessment of the business environment. Organizational interests far precede my own interests and I do not give up that easily, and I love to nurture people to be successful. Just like any anyone else I also have my failings and the major one being that I do not have patience for incompetence.” (Chugh as he describes himself)
Research and scholarly work have been an integral part of my professional life, and it is something I truly enjoy. I have always enjoyed breadth in my scholarly work. My major scholarly contributions can be subdivided into four areas: Applied Rock Mechanics and Ground Control, Coal Combustion Byproducts Management, Dust Control in Coal Mining Face Areas & Mining Systems.
Professor Chugh has been actively involved in creating new knowledge to solve problems facing the discipline, mining industry, region and the country for ensuring that the created new knowledge is utilized in our industries in a timely fashion. He believes that Teaching, research, and scholarly activities have at least one thing in common—they change the way we think and do things.
