About me...

Finishing highschool with majors in Chemistry and Physics, I started my B.Sc degree in Chemistry at Tel Aviv Univeristy. Few years later, I got my M.Sc degree in Chemistry and material sciences at the Physical chemistry department of Tel Aviv University under the supervision of Prof. Sergey Cheskis and Dr. Valery Bulatov with the support of IDI. The topic of my thesis was Laser induced ablation and propulsion. My further PGRD studies in Prof. Zeev Zalevsky's group at Bar Ilan University focused on electron beam charge deposition on insulators, followed by rearrangement of deposited nanoparticles and fabrication on nano wires for devices. Recently I got a Marie-Curie Fellowship and joined the School of Earth, Atmospheric and Environmental Sciences (SEAES) at the faculty of Engineering and Physical Sciences at Manchester University, doing clouds microphysics research under the supervision of Prof. Thomas Choularton, Prof. Martin Gallagher and Dr. Paul Connolly

I`ve been working in Landa Laboratories, which became later Landa Corporation for almost 5 years, in the beginning as a research assistant and later as a R&D Materials Chemist, during these years I was involved in many projects such as Green energy research, Printing research, Graphene production etc.

Besides my academic career I was involved for 3 years in different social Perach projects ( ELIYA, ZEMED).
