2001 – 2005: BSc Chemistry and Mathematics at
the Hebrew University.

BA - mathematics and
chemistry, MSc (with honors) - applied chemistry (Supervisor Prof. Yoel
Sasson), both at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem
The theme of my
master thesis was to study and develop a kinetic mechanism of Ru
nanoparticles self-assembly during chemical reaction. During the
research I synthesized organometallic complexes and used different
analytic characterization and computation methods. Finally I suggested
new steps for a classic mechanism of nanoparticles bottom-up formation.
During PhD degree I
assemble thin asymmetric films using Langmuir technique. These films are
highly attractive in a modern membrane technology. The films comprise of
a danse Langmuir layer from the hydrophobic nature attached to a
hydrophilic porous backbone. In addition, I am trying to construct
selective thin films both by LbL and SAM techniques. These films can be
used either for sensing (of water pollutants, for example) or to produce
molecular selective skin for separation membranes.

Developing new techniques to study and manipulate
nanoparticle systems with scanning electrochemical microscopy (SECM).
SECM technique offers a very elegant way for experimenting with local
chemistry and process analysis. New methods that combine
electrochemistry with the SECM technique target the study of
nanoparticle systems. Among the investigated processes are the local
deposition of metals and semiconductors nanoparticles, and the local
chemistry with nanoparticles on different types of surfaces such as
conducting polymer films and semicoductors.This research pushes the
limits of the SECM technique.
