PhD: Physics, Weizmann Institute of Science, 1997

MSc: Physics, Weizmann Institute of Science, 1993

BSc: Physics and Astronomy, Tel Aviv University, 1989

 

Nano Main Field:

My group develops novel devices and techniques for probing individual biomolecules and biomolecular complexes in vitro and in live cells. We employ high-resolution nano-fabrication methods to craft nanopores, which are only a few nanometers wide (essentially the diameter of a double-stranded DNA molecule), and use these devices to electrically and/or optically probe individual biomolecules.  These methods are used to develop ultra fast DNA sequencing, RNA profiling and for probing complex biomolecular processes at the single molecule level.PhD: Physics, Weizmann Institute of Science, 1997
