Mohsen Yeganeh received a B.S. in Physics with Summa Cum Laude, from the State University of New York at Stony Brook and a Ph.D. in Physics from the University of Pennsylvania where he developed nonlinear optical (NLO) spectroscopy of solid/solid interfaces and received the Outstanding Thesis Award in 1992. He after receiving his degree joined Exxon Research and Engineering Co. as a postdoctoral fellow. He has been a Member of the Technical Staff at ExxonMobil Corporate Strategic Laboratories in NJ since 1995 where he leads the nonlinear optical spectroscopy laboratory for the characterization of interfaces that are of practical interest to ExxonMobil. Dr. Yeganeh is the author of over 80 external and internal publications and holds six US patents. He has served in various seminar organizing and award committees. He is the treasurer and a member of the Board of Directors of the Materials Science Club of NY since 1995. Statement
Advances in physics within the industrial community must be recognized and acknowledged. FIAP has initiated this effort and has made tremendous progress toward this goal. The FIAP’s effort must be continued, strengthened and widened to include the effort of industrial physicists who are involved in non-traditional physics fields. I am committed to encourage industrial physicists working in chemical companies to support FIAP’s efforts. To facilitate this I will seek a closer collaboration between FIAP and both the Chemical and Polymer Physics Divisions. In addition, I would actively encourage broader interactions between industries and universities, as well as facilitate interactions between physics students and industries for better career planning. My experience as treasurer and a member of the Board of Directors of the Materials Science Club of NY will serve me well in fulfilling the secretary/treasurer position at FIAP.
