Dr. Mamta Kumari has received her PhD from Homi Bhabha National institute, Bhabha atomic research center, Mumbai, India in 2018. She has expertise in synthesis and characterization of polymer electrolyte membranes (cation exchange membranes and anion exchange membranes), Modification of membrane's properties by varying membranes structure at microscopic level, Fuel cell etc. She joined Prof. Dario Dekel's group from December 2018 until December 2020 as Post-Doctoral Fellow. In Prof. Dekel's group she worked on the development of anion exchange membranes for fuel cell and another electrochemical applications.
Israel received his BSc with honors, in 2005 from the Technion, faculty of Chemical Engineering. Worked for two years, 2006-2008, as an associate Researcher in the IMG4 MAGNET project, Technion R&D. Worked for five years, 2009-2013, as a pilot engineer/project manager at IMI TAMI - ICL (Israel chemicals limited) institute for R&D. Managing multiple R&D projects in the fields of biocides, pharma, process scaleup of novel flame retardants, simulation of mixing, and reaction calorimetry. Received his MSc in 2016, on the subject of “Evaluation of Protein-Imprinted Hydrogel Performance Using Molecular Dynamics Simulation”. Since 2016 until 2020 he worked on his
Igal Rasin received his PhD in Physics from the Brandenburg Technical University, Germany in 2007. His field is numerical simulation of transport processes. Igal joined Prof. Dario group in 2017 in order to build Fuel-Cell simulation tool. This tool allows better understanding of fuel-cell internal processes and as a result allows to plan experimental activity.
Jasmin received her BSc in Biochemical and Pharmaceutical Engineering from the Technical University of Brunswick, Germany in 2017. She then started the master program mechanical engineering, specified in energy and process engineering at the Technical University of Brunswick, Germany. She was a visiting research student at Prof. Dekel's Lab and was conducting stability tests on anion exchange membranes (until 2019).
I am a BSc student in chemical Engineering in the Technion – Israel Institute of Technology. I joined Prof. Dekel’s group in 2018 for the final project, which include examination of the alkaline stability of anion exchange membranes at dry basic environment.
Yifan started his bachelor’s degree in Chemical Engineering from the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology in 2015. Yifan join Prof. Lahav’s project regarding rehabilitation of water distribution systems following a chemical contamination intrusion in 2018 as undergraduate student, which include experimental research and part of data analysis for heavy metal contamination. Yifan finished his bachelor’s degree and join Prof. Dario’s group since 2019 until 2021.
Lanjie received his BSc in Civil and Environmental Engineering Faculty from the Technion – Israel Institute of Technology (2015-2019). Beginning from October of 2019 Lanjie will start his master studies under the supervision of Prof. Dekel.  
Ziye Xiao received her BSc in Chemical Engineering from the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology in 2019. During her undergraduate research, she worked on corrole complexes for multiple purposes under the supervision of Prof. Zeev Gross. From 2019, Ziye Xiao joined Prof. Dario Dekel’s group as a MSc student.
  Post Doc at the Ariel University in the field of Organometal catalysis. Academic Chair of the Alpha program at Ariel.
Current position: Delft University of Technology I studied for Master degree in Dekel's group.
