Assistant Professor, Department of Physics

Dr. Dalaver H. Anjum joined Khalifa University (KU) in Fall 2019. Before joining KU, Dr. Anjum had fifteen years of experience working in the industry as well as in academia. He started his professional career in transmission electron microscopy of liquid materials from the Burnham Institute for Medical Research, La Jolla, CA. Prof. Anjum moved to an industry job as an Analytical Applications Specialist in Gatan, Inc. for the development and applications of energy-filtered electron microscopy. After working in Gatan, Inc. for about 2 years, Dr. Anjum moved to Saudi Arabia in 2009 to help electron microscopy lab at a newly established King Abdullah University of Science & Technology (KAUST). He performed this responsibility in the capacity of a Sr. Application Scientist of Thermo-Fisher Scientific in KAUST. In 2011, he moved to the Imaging and Characterization Lab of KAUST and has been working there till August 2019.

Dr. Anjum earned his degrees of MSc and PhD in Physics from the University at Albany-SUNY, Albany, NY. He also obtained MSc in Physics from Quaid-e-Azam University, Pakistan after earning a first-class BSc in Science at the University of Punjab, Pakistan.

He is an acting reviewer for several journals of International Repute. Dr. Anjum is an active member of both Microscopy Society of America (MSA) and Microanalysis Society (MAS). His total publications to date exceed 200 in total and come from various disciplines of Science and Technology. The complete record of his publications can be found in his Google scholar link.
