Oz M. Gazit completed his BSc in chemical engineering from the Ben Gurion university in 2004 . He then moved to the Technion to pursue his PhD, under the supervision of Prof’ Rina Tannenbaum and Prof’ Yachin Cohen. His thesis work focused on the formation of nanoscale, self-assembled, periodic composite materials (polymer and oxide nanoparticles) that would be able to trap, mold and guide light. Upon graduating in July 2009 he joined the group of Prof’ Alex Katz at UC-Berkeley as postdoctoral scholar. During his time at UCB he worked on the fundamental design of weak acid sites on the surface of metal oxide as heterogeneous catalyst for cellulose depolymerization and the development of cellulose based multilayer coatings for the stabilization of paint pigments. In 2013 he joined to the chemical engineering faculty at the Technion under the Solar Fuels ISF-ICORE excellence program and the Technion Grand Energy Program, where he is currently an associate professor.
