Graduate Students

B.Sc. in Materials Engineering and Chemistry from the Technion (2007). Received M.Sc. (Cum Laude) in Chemical Engineering faculty, Technion (2013). The main topic of M.Sc. studies was development of methodology for direct imaging of highly acidic systems by cryo-TEM and cryo-SEM. Now is studying toward Ph.D in collaboration with Rice University, Houston US. The research focuses on structure analysis of CNT dissolved in superacids and structure transformation during all-CNT fiber spinning from superacid solutions.The experimental methods used are direct-imaging cryo-TEM and cryo-SEM, WAXD, SAXS and neutron scattering.

B.Sc. summa cum laude in Chemical Engineering from the Technion (2009).

M.Sc in Nanoscience and Nanotechnology on the subject "Nanostructure in Non-Aqueous Solutions" focusing on the characterization of ternary systems composed mainly of organic solvents or ionic liquids.

Currently studying towards her Ph.D. in the Norman Seiden Multidisciplinary graduate program in Nanoscience and Nanotechnology. The research focuses on cell-membrane shed extracellular vesicles (EVs), using mainly cryo-TEM and cryo-SEM and complemented by other characterization techniques such as flow-cytometry, DLS and Nanoparticle tracking analysis (NanoSight). The research is composed by direct-imaging characterization of EVs either during their shedding process from the cells, or isolated from the cell medium as a result of various cell stimulations. Immunogold labeling of the EVs is applied in order to probe specific molecules composing their membrane.
