LOS ANGELES, CA, June 13, 2019 — Marquis Who's Who, the world's premier publisher of biographical profiles, is proud to present Perry S. Ganas with the Albert Nelson Marquis Lifetime Achievement Award. An accomplished listee, Dr. Ganas celebrates many years' experience in his professional network, and has been noted for achievements, leadership qualities, and the credentials and successes he has accrued in his field. As in all Marquis Who's Who biographical volumes, individuals profiled are selected on the basis of current reference value. Factors such as position, noteworthy accomplishments, visibility, and prominence in a field are all taken into account during the selection process.
A native of Brisbane, Australia, Dr. Ganas has excelled as a professor of physics for over three decades. As a young man, he found science particularly interesting and felt that his future was going to be devoted to physics, specifically. After earning a Bachelor of Science from the University of Queensland in 1961, he accepted the position of a teaching fellow while securing a Doctor of Philosophy in physics from the University of Sydney in 1967. Subsequently, Dr. Ganas relocated to the United States in 1968, serving as a postdoctoral research associate for the University of Florida, Gainesville until his departure in 1970.
Following this appointment, Dr. Ganas began his tenure with California State University at Los Angeles, working as a professor of physics from 1970 until his retirement 2006. While holding that post, he simultaneously became a permanent United States resident in 1975 and contributed as an adjunct faculty member with East Los Angeles College in Monterey Park, CA from 1988 to 2004. In 2004, he became a naturalized United States citizen, and a dual citizen with Australia. An expert in the field, Dr. Ganas has written several research articles that were published in professional journals, including “Modified Born Approximation and the Elastic Scattering of Electrons from Helium,” “Electron Impact Excitation of the Rare Gases”, and “An Analytic Model of Electron-Oxygen Elastic Scattering in the 1-500-eV Range,” among others.
A past member of the American Physical Society, Dr. Ganas remains active with Sigma Xi and the ResearchGate. Notably, he experienced the highlight of his career at the age of 16, having received a medal during a time where he was very passionate about his achievements. As a testament to his success, he has been selected for inclusion in multiple editions of Who's Who in America, Who's Who in the West, Who's Who in Science and Engineering, and Who's Who in the World. Outside of his primary responsibilities, Dr. Ganas enjoys gardening, golf, billiards, hiking and watching movies in his spare time.
In recognition of outstanding contributions to his profession and the Marquis Who's Who community, Dr. Ganas has been featured on the Albert Nelson Marquis Lifetime Achievement website. Please visit www.ltachievers.com for more information about this honor.
