Dr. Adrian Pollock has been a leader in the field of acoustic emission for 40 years. He has made his career as an employee of the top AE instrument manufacturers. His extensive work includes basic research, applications development, instrument development, education and training, and personnel qualification and certification. He is a recipient of the Gold Medal Award of the Acoustic Emission Working Group, the Tutorial Citation of the American Society for Nondestructive Testing, and a 25 year service award from ASTM International. He has authored over 60 publications and made presentations on acoustic emission in twenty countries and four languages. A substantial part of his work has been training and education in acoustic emission. He has instructed approximately 2000 people in this field through a dozen general and specialist courses that he has developed. Among these is the subject course at Drexel University, created with Dr. Genis to provide significant education in AE for NDE (nondestructive evaluation of materials) at the undergraduate level.
