Netanel obtained his BSc degree in materials engineering in 2014 from Azrieli College of Engineering in Jerusalem. He proceeded to MSc and PhD studies at Bar Ilan University under the supervision of Prof. Michael Levi and Prof. Doron Aurbach. In his postdoctoral research, he is working on the development of aqueous and non-aqueous electrochemical systems for large-energy storage propulsion and of new analytical tools based on EQCM-D (quartz crystal microbalance with dissipation monitoring) for in-situ monitoring of gravimetric and mechanical changes in batteries and supercapacitor electrodes. This kind of analysis provides information about the chemical and physical interactions that occur in the bulk and on the surface of electrodes and sheds light on the degradation mechanisms of electrode materials.
Netanel’s research is divided between three prominent groups, those of Prof. Doron Aurbach of Bar Ilan University, Prof. Dani Mandler of The Hebrew University of Jerusalem, and Prof. Yury Googotsi of Drexel University.
