Dr. Ines Zucker holds a B.Sc. degree in Mechanical Engineering, M.Sc. degree in Materials and Nanotechnologies Engineering, and Ph.D. in Materials Science and Engineering with expertise Environmental Engineering, all from Tel-Aviv University. Alongside these diverse educational experiences, Ines completed her postdoctoral training at Yale University at the field of environmental applications and implications of nanotechnology.
In her faculty appointment, Ines now serves as a jointly-appointed senior lecturer in the School of Mechanical Engineering and Porter School of Environmental Studies. Using a wide skill-set combining material synthesis and structure-property characterization with a world-class exposure to analytical chemistry and water treatment tools, the ZuckerLab focuses on advanced materials and novel approaches for environmental applications, alongside with environmental and health impacts of nanotechnology. The ZuckerLab also design novel approaches for targeted chemical oxidation applications, including ozone-based process for SARS-CoV-2 inactivation from aerosols and surfaces in local indoor environments.
