Prof. Roie Yerushalmi
Roie Yerushalmi joined the institute of chemistry at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Israel. in 2008 Since 2015 he is Associate Professor at the Hebrew University. His research combines molecular-level design and surface chemistry in the context of nanoscience and materials science. His main research interests focus on the design and synthesis of hybrid nanostructures for photocatalysis, electrical & optical applications, and energy harvesting. The research program includes the development of new methodologies for combining surface chemistry and materials science research of atomic and molecular layer deposition schemes, NW synthesis, hybrid nanostructures, ex-situ doping of nanostructures, nanostructure array assembly, and comprehensive characterization of complex nanostructured systems by the application of analytical methods. Prof. Yerushalmi received a starting grant from the ERC (European Research Council), the Krill Prize from the Wolf Foundation, the career development award from the Human Frontier Science Program, and the Kennedy prize.
