Particle Analysis for Industrial Product Success

This week on Covalent Academy, Dr. Sophia Yan will be guiding an exploration of the field of particle characterization: what is entails, why it matters, and how it’s done. Her talk will also highlight key considerations for the industrial applications of these techniques, and comment on some practical aspects of instrumentation.

The event, Particle Analysis for Industrial Product Success, will be aired live at 11am PDT on May 14th.

About the Speakers

Sophia Yan

Dr. Yan is a material physicist who currently leads the rheology and particle characterization techniques including rheometer, laser diffraction, light scattering and zeta potential analysis. Her expertise lies in investigating physical properties of complex fluids and solids, and elucidating structure-function relationship of ingredients and bulk products. Her work has applied these insights to solving technical problems for research innovations, product development and process optimization for consumer products.

She has over 8 years of industry work experience: beginning as a research scientist at Tate & Lyle and advancing to the role of Associate Principal Scientist at PepsiCo.
