Herchel Smith Postdoctoral Fellow

Office Phone: +44 (0)1223 747037


In parallel to obtaining a Bsc in biochemical engineering, I've gained 4 years experience in Silicon Validation at Intel (both HW & SW engineering). After obtaining a PhD in physical chemistry from the Technion, I've joined to the SMF group (Cavendish Laboratory) as a Blavatnik postdoctoral fellow. I have also gained experience in founding community oriented medium-scale retail projects, and early-years educational systems.

Main research interests:

Molecular ​ ​structure ​ ​& ​ ​dynamics ​ ​on ​ ​surfaces ​ ​with ​ ​a ​ ​special ​ ​interest ​ ​in ​ ​the ​ ​formation ​ ​of hydrogen ​ ​bond ​ ​based ​ ​networks.
A glimpse to my toolbox:
- Surface sensitive Spectroscopy and Diffraction techniques
- Development and usage of Molecular Dynamics and Monte-Carlo methods

- Ultra High Vacuum engineering, CAD design and multi-physics modelling.
