7456 Doressoundiram           Discovered 1982 July 17 by E. Bowell at the Anderson Mesa Station of the Lowell Observatory.
Named in honor of Alain Doressoundiram (b. 1968), French planetary scientist. Doressoundiram has worked on the collisional evolution of the population of minor planets, in particular the formation and evolution of binary systems during a family-forming collision. He has contributed to the spectroscopic characterization of a number of minor planet families and helped plan the Rosetta and DS4-Champollion space missions. Name suggested and citation prepared by M. A. Barucci and M. Fulchignoni.
