Craig Yoder, PhDSr. Vice President of Global Technology

Dr. Yoder has directed Landauer’s technical activities relating to radiation dosimetry, particularly for applications
in radiation protection, since joining the Company in 1983.  Additionally, he oversees the Company’s subsidiary
and partner businesses located in Australia, Brazil, China, France, Mexico, Japan, Sweden and Turkey.  He led
the development of the Luxel®, InLight® and RadLight™ families of products and services that are used by the Company’s clients to monitor the radiation exposure of more than 1.5 million workers around the world. 

An internationally known expert in radiation monitoring, Dr. Yoder led Landauer’s transition from film and thermoluminescent dosimetry technology to optically stimulated luminescence, an assignment that required strategic planning and direction in areas spanning scientific research, product development, manufacturing, laboratory operations and marketing.  From 1993 to 2001, he was Vice President of Operations and managed Landauer’s manufacturing and analytical laboratory activities in addition to overseeing R&D programs.

Dr. Yoder is a member of the National Council on Radiation Protection and Measurements (NCRP) and former President of the Council on Ionizing Radiation Measurements and Standards (CIRMS).  He has served on several national and international committees to develop dosimetry standards.  He was a member of a National Research Council committee that examined the accuracy of film badge measurements made during atmospheric nuclear weapons testing.  He currently heads the Advisory Committee for the School of Health Sciences at Purdue University.

Dr. Yoder earned his MS and PhD degrees in Bionucleonics at Purdue University and received a BS degree in
Pre-Medicine from Davidson College.  He also completed the Executive Program at Stanford University.  He is Certified in Comprehensive Health Physics by the American Board of Health Physics.
