I am on my way to get a Ph.D. degree in Nanoscience and Nanotechnology at the Russel Berrie Nanotechnology Institute

My PhD research was in the field of Computational Nanoelectronics was supervised by Dr. Joan Adler and Dr. Yuval Yaish

My fields of research are Computational Chemistry, Biochemistry, Physics and Mechanics. During my Ph.D. studies I modeled Nano Electro Mechanical Systems (NEMS) based on Carbon Nanotubes (CNT) for its application in sensing. I studied vibrational and mechanical behavior of single walled carbon nanotubes using atomistic simulations. My M.Sc. research involved electronic structure calculations of low coordinated silicone compounds requiring a strong background in DFT and ab initio calculations using the Gaussian package. The results of these research projects are published in refereed journals. My research interests are broad. I am interested in large scale simulation of biological systems, mechanistic and electrical studies of membranes, sensors, materials for sustainable and alternative energy, polymer systems, protein folding, and design of nanomaterials for verity of applications in general. I especially interested in graphene applications particularly for nanopore DNA sequencing and protein encoding.


My M.Sc. thesis is Stability and Reactivity of Low Coordinated Silicon Compounds is done by electronic structure computations the abstract of it is available here, if you are interested in more information contact me and I will mail you a pdf.
