18+ YEARS OF EXPERIENCE
Dalia Yablon spent 11 years at ExxonMobil Research and Engineering’s Corporate Strategic Research laboratory, its flagship research center in Annandale, NJ. At ExxonMobil, she served as program leader in various sectors of the energy business, and developed a state-of-the-art scanning probe microscopy/nanoindentation laboratory for nanoscale characterization of surfaces and interfaces. She has worked in a number of cross-sector areas, including polymers, tribology, lubrication, corrosion, and unconventional gas resources, with a specific focus on developing new nanomechanical characterization methods. In 2013, Dalia founded SurfaceChar, a scientific consulting company in the greater Boston area. SurfaceChar is a surfaces and interfaces characterization, measurement, and educational/training consulting service with a focus on scanning probe microscopy. Dalia designed her AFM course, has taught it globally, and is pleased to be bringing her course to Hooke College of Applied Sciences, a member of The McCrone Group. Dalia’s edited book Scanning Probe Microscopy in Industrial Applications published in 2013 by Wiley serves as a textbook for her course.
