Prof. Menny Shalom
Menny Shalom completed a B.Sc. in chemistry summa cum laude at Bar Ilan University in 2007. He conducted his Ph.D. under the supervision of Prof. Arie Zaban at Bar Ilan University. Afterward, he did postdoctoral research in Max Planck Institute of Colloids and Interfaces (MPI), Germany together with Prof. Markus Antonietti. In 2013 he was appointed as a Group Leader at MPI. Menny joined the Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, Department of Chemistry in October 2016.
Menny's research is focused on several fundamental scientific topics, ranging from new synthetic methodologies for 2D metal-free materials, sustainable solar to fuel conversion, and the development of new materials and concepts for clean fuel production (e.g., hydrogen and carbon-based fuels) by using photoelectrochemical cells and electrocatalysis.
His undergraduate honors include Bar Ilan University’s Dean and Rector Awards for outstanding students and the Wolf Foundation Award. His awards include the Wolf Foundation Award for M.Sc. and Ph.D. students, the Israel Chemical Society (ICS) prize for outstanding Ph.D. student, Israel sustainable energy society prize for the best Ph.D. thesis, Minerva fellowship for postdoctoral research, the Toronto prize Excellence in Research for young faculty members, and the Israel vacuum society (IVS) early career excellence email@example.com
