Dr. Dalaver Anjum has joined Khalifa University (KU) in this Fall 2019. Before joining KU, Dr. Anjum assumed a number of positions over the period of past decade and half to garner the experience of working in both industry and academia. He started his professional career in transmission electron microscopy of liquid materials from the Burnham Institute for Medical Research, La Jolla, CA. He also served as Analytical Applications Specialist in Gatan, Inc. for the development and applications of energy-filtered electron microscopy. Dr. Anjum moved to Saudi Arabia in 2009 for a 2-Year assignment on the electron microscopy materials in 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 Year 2011, he switched to Imaging and Characterization Lab of KAUST and has been working there till August 2019.


Dr. Anjum earned his degrees of MS and PhD in Physics from the University at Albany-SUNY, Albany, NY. After earning first class B.Sc. in Science, at the University of Punjab, Pakistan he obtained M.Sc. in Physics from Quaid-e-Azam University, Pakistan.


He is 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.  https://scholar.google.com/citations?user=U2TnA94AAAAJ&hl=en&oi=ao
