Saja Bsoul Haj received her BSc in Biotechnology Engineering from Ort Braude College, Israel in 2017. In 2017-2018, worked as Quality Control Engineer at Aromor Factory. Saja joined Prof. Dekel’s group in 2018 as a MSc Student, her research combines the development of high performance, low-cost thin Fuel cell membranes.
Dr. Singh received MSc - PhD degree from Indian Institute of Technology Bombay, India in February 2016 under the supervision of Prof. Manoj Neergat. His research was focused on electrochemistry for oxygen reduction reaction (ORR) and low-platinum ORR catalyst development. After PhD, Dr. Singh worked as a postdoctoral researcher in the laboratory of Prof. Alex Schechter at Ariel University, Israel for two and a half years. Currently, Dr. Singh is working as a postdoctoral fellow in the laboratory of Prof. Dario R. Dekel in the Wolfson Department of Chemical Engineering at Technion-Israel Institute of Technology from November 2018.
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).
Yona Lee received her BSc in Chemistry from Duksung Women’s University, South Korea in 2016. She studied her master course at KU-KIST Green School, Korea University, majoring in Renewable Energy, working at KIST – Korea Institute of Science and Technology in Dr. Henkensmeier’s group. There she studied about synthesis of membranes for anion exchange membrane fuel cell (AEMFC) and Vanadium redox flow battery (VRFB) along with basic analysis for membrane properties. Since April 2019, Yona is a PhD student at Prof. Dario Dekel's group in Wolfson Department of Chemical Engineering at the Technion.
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.
