Post-doc recognized for outstanding research
AEM Post Doctoral Associate, Yaniv Ganor, has been selected as the 2009 Barazani Foundation Prize winner for outstanding PhD research. Ganor received his PhD from the Technion in 2008 and joined our department to work with Professor Richard James in April of 2009.
The Barazani prize is an honor given annually to a graduate student at the Technion, the Israel Institute of Technology. Recipients are recommended by the department dean and by panelists of the graduate student board, based on their academic and research accomplishments.
His main area of research is the study of self-assembly of structures based on the concept of objective structures, and the search for new x-ray imaging methods of these structures. In addition, he develops experimental methods and theoretical models for the study of the magnetomechanical response of ferromagnetic shape memory materials, with a special focus on high work output, remote actuation, microstructure and domain structure, and medical applications of these emerging materials.
