Prof. David Eisenberg
David was born in Kiev, Ukraine in 1984, and lives in Israel since the age of 6. He studied Physical Organic Chemistry at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem (BSc, MSc, PhD 2002-2011), with Prof. Roy Shenhar (יבדל"ח) and Prof. Mordecai Rabinovitz ז"ל. In parallel, he served as an R&D officer at the Advanced Materials department at an Israeli National Lab. He then travelled to the University of Texas at Austin as a Fulbright Fellow and an Ilan-Ramon Fellow, to study electrocatalysis with Prof. Allen J. Bard and Prof. Adam Heller. In 2015 David moved to the group of Prof. Gadi Rothenberg (University of Amsterdam) to develop self-templated carbon materials for energy applications. Since 2017, he leads the Eisenberg Lab for Electrochemistry and Energy at the Schulich Faculty of Chemistry, Technion, focused on electrocatalysis in the nitrogen and oxygen cycles, and the rational design of nanostructure in catalytic materials. He lives in Migdal HaEmeq, Israel, with his wife and 6 children, thanking G-d daily for this wonderful, wonderful world.
