- Keren Trabelsi
, a M.Sc. student at
Ariel University in Israel has started her experimental work at the The
Department of Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology under the joint
mentoring of Dr Yael
, lecturer at Ariel University, and Mario Pagliaro, at
Italy's Research Council.
The duration of the research to get the M.Sci. title in Israel is two
years, during which Keren will also have
to follow several second degree courses.
"I am excited to start
the joint mentoring of M.Sc. Student Keren Trabelsi with Mario
, says Dr Albo. "Our
respective research Groups work on applicative sol-gel
matrices, and we believe that such collaboration is a wonderful way to
knowledge and expertise and to promote the research in the field. Good
Located in Samaria's Ariel, about 60 km from Jerusalem, Ariel University
is the eighth
and last University founded in Israel. It hosts approximately 15,000
in four Faculties (Engineering, Science and Mathematics,
Health Sciences, and Social Science) and over 20 Departments. The
University offers numerous master (M.A., M.B.A. and M.Sc) and doctorate
(Ph.D.) degree programs programs.
Dr Albo is well known in the chemistry community for her achievements with the first sol-gel derived electron exchange
columns ever prepared, as well as for her work on sol-gel encapsulated
metal nanoparticles. Electron exchange columns are analogous to ion
exchange columns. Yet, the electron exchange columns do not contaminate
the products while performing the redox reaction, for example during
for the treatment of polluted water, especially of water contaminated
with halogenated compounds.
