Dr. Karina Ioffe
I received my PhD degree in the electrochemistry field of study in 2012 (Southern Federal University, Russian Federation). During the doctoral research, I was studying the anodic behavior of lead and its alloys in aqueous and water-acetonitrile solutions of salts. After graduate school, I was working as a Senior Research Fellow at the Institute of Physical and Organic Chemistry of SFU. My research involved the synthesis and study of multifunctional organic chemosensors for the determination of cations and anions. Special attention was paid to the investigation of novel classes of "naked-eye" systems, water-soluble compounds, and indicator test strips on their basis, which are in demand to counter technogenic and human-induced hazards for society and economy. The results of the scientific work are described in monographs, reviews, and in international and Russian journals and relevant patents.
I’ve been living in Israel since the end of 2018, and I joined The Eisenberg lab for Electrochemistry and Energy in early 2020 as a researcher. I am fond of painting, fashion, and reading nonfiction books on biology.
