About Me

I have dealt with corrosion since 1976 when I graduated from the Chemico-Technological University named after Mendeleev in Moscow.

Use of materials resistant to corrosion under different conditions, corrosion monitoring, anti-corrosion measures and failure analysis in industry is what I have been doing for many years.


I also teach the subject of corrosion, chemical thermodynamics and kinetics, materials and standards in oil and gas engineering in universities and colleges in Israel and abroad.

Corrosion attracts me most because it includes many aspects of science and engineering.

My book "Corrosion for Everybody" won the innovation award winner of Materials Performance Readers` Choice in 2012 in the USA.

I am also an active promoter of science to the general public.
