Bio-inspired metallopeptoids as electrocatalysts for hydrogen production from water


Galia Maayan studied Chemistry at Tel Aviv University and at The Weizmann Institute of Science, Israel, where she did her PhD in the group of Ronny Neumann. She was a Postdoctoral research associate with Michael D. Ward and Kent Kirshenbaum, in the Molecular Design Institute at New York University and with George Christou in the Department of Inorganic Chemistry at the University of Florida. In the spring of 2012 she joined the Schulich Faculty of Chemistry at the Technion, Israel as an Assistant Professor. In 2019 she was promoted to Associate Prof. with tenure. The research interests in her lab focus on bio-inspired metal complexes and on the interactions between peptidomimetic oligomers and metal species (ions, nanoparticles) for applications in folding, recognition, supramolecular structures, catalysis and energy.
