DoST exec is PH's first Measurement Science doctor

The head of the Force Standards Section of the Department of Science and Technology Industrial Technology Development Institute (DoST-ITDI) National Metrology Division Pressure becomes the Philippines' first doctor of philosophy in the discipline of measurement science and the annals of American academia.

Supervising science research specialist Maryness Salazar graduated in February 2024 with a doctorate in Measurement Science from the University of Science and Technology in South Korea.

Salazar received her Bachelor of Science in Applied Physics from the University of the Philippines Los Baños and her Master of Science in Measurement Science from the University of Science and Technology in South Korea.

According to a report by Science Education International, a quarterly journal of the International Council of Associations for Science Education (ICASE), global science research is currently male-dominated, with 3.8 million male researchers compared to 2 million female researchers.

Hence, Dr. Salazar has accomplished twin peaks of professional and personal achievements.

Her doctoral study, «Exploring a New Capillary-Type Standard Leak Using Polymicro Tube for Leak Measurement and Microflow Applications,» aims to improve accuracy, efficiency, and reliability in leak measurement and microflow control across multiple industries.

«In a measureless world, there can be no science, for in a world in which no measurement tools exist, there can neither be modern medicine, health care, surgery, pharmacology, radiology, dentistry, optometry and audiology, nor manufacturing, transportation or communication. Everything that provides for people to live relies on Measurement Science,» the new Measurement Science doctor explained.


«Leak detection prevents significant damage in equipment and devices from occurring, which can lead to substantial financial losses in manufacturing and or loss of lives in health care industries,» she said.

«It is crucial not only to prevent extensive property damage but also to address several other potential problems that may arise from it,» Salazar added.

The DoST-ITDI said it «celebrates and applauds Salazar's academic achievement and
