Assistant Prof. Nadav Amdursky



Main energy field:

Energy flow in materials


Assistant Prof. –  2016-current  –  Technion

Post-doc.  –  2014-2016  – Imperial College London –  Materials & Bioengineering

Post-doc. –  2011-2013  – Weizmann Institute –  Materials & Interfaces

Ph.D. –  2007-2011 – Tel Aviv University –  Biotechnology and Electrical Engineering

B.Sc. – 2003-2006  – Tel Aviv University  – Biotechnology

Research Interests:

Energy flow in materials

Energy flow in bioinspired systems

In my research, I design new type of materials that are being formed out of biological building blocks. Together with post-chemical modification, we enable energy flow through them (electronic, protonic or ionic) for future use in conductive membranes, scaffolds or even in photovoltaic applications.
