This career path would provide me with a fruitful, multidisciplinary interaction with other specialists across the company, (and with the opportunity to exploit)/(while exploiting) the breadth of my education, which I believe to be one of the strong points of my expertise.

Hi FounDit, and thank you for your advice.
I would please ask you if the expressions in bold are correct in the following (it is a bullet list):

worked on optimising the production process of doped semiconductor and superconductor materials, and on characterizing these materials including:
- evaluation of their mechanical, electrical, thermal and optical properties
- analysis of their chemical composition and surface structure by using XRD, electron microscopy (TEM, SEM, EDX), etc.
