Affiliated with the Department of Food Engineering & Biotechnology and works in this group, too. M.Sc. in Biology with a major in Biochemistry from Rostov-on-Don State University, Russia (1985) and Ph.D. degree in biological research from Rostov-on-Don Medical University, Russia (1993). Studied confocal microscopy in EMBL (Heidelberg) and AFM in JPK Instruments (Berlin). Started work as researcher at the Technion shortly after immigration to Israel (1999), where acquired an experience of many years in Electron Microscopy. Current research interests and activities are focused on the characterization of microstructural properties and interactions in soft matter systems on the micro- and nano- scale level, using different microscopy techniques: TEM, SEM, LCSM, AFM, NSOM, LM as well as conventional biological methods of research.
