IVS RESEARCH EXCELLENCE AWARD - EXPERIMENT

Prof. Yair Ein-Eli (Technion)

Yair Ein-Eli (52) is a materials scientist and an electrochemist, who is seeking to develop new materials, device designs and operating conditions which overcome the limitations of current technologies. Yair obtained his BSc in Chemistry (1990) and PhD (1995) from Bar-Ilan University. He conducted his PhD studies under the supervision of Prof. Doron Aurbach and a post-doctoral study at Covalent Assoc. Inc (Woburn, MA) between 1995-1998. After that, Yair joined Electric Fuel Ltd. (Bet Shemesh), where he served as a VP of Research and Development. In 2001 Prof. Ein-Eli moved to the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at the Technion and currently serves as the Dean of the Department. Yair served in the past as a board member of the IVS and as its treasurer. He also established and headed the Grand Technion Energy Program (GTEP) graduate studies and currently serves as a board member of GTEP. Current research projects and interests of Yair in the field of electrochemistry are related to power sources materials and technologies (advanced materials for Li-ion batteries, metal-air cells and fuel cells), electroplating methods, as well as corrosion inhibitors studies. Yair published in his academic career more than 150 papers in peer-reviews Journals and is a member and a fellow of Electrochemical and Materials Societies.

IVS RESEARCH EXCELLENCE AWARD - THEORY

Prof. Leeor Kronik (WIS)

Leeor Kronik obtained his Ph.D. in Physical Electronics at Tel Aviv University, under the supervision of Prof. Yoram Shapira. He was a Rothschild and Fulbright post-doctoral fellow at the University of Minnesota, USA, with the group of Prof. James R. Chelikowsky. He has been on the faculty of the Department of Materials and Interfaces at the Weizmann Institute of Science, Israel, since Dec. 2002. Presently he serves as Professor, Department Chair, and director of the newly established Center for Advanced and Intelligent Materials. His research interests are in the fundamentals of density functional theory and in using the theory to understand and predict properties of materials from first principles, with a current emphasis on organic and hybrid organic-inorganic solids and structures. He has received the Krill Prize of the Wolf Foundation for Excellence in Scientific Research and the Outstanding Young Scientist Award of the Israel Chemical Society, and has been elected to be a Member of the Young Israel Academy and a Fellow of the American Physical Society.
