Roy Shenhar is an Associate Professor of Chemistry at the Institute of Chemistry of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. He received his B.Sc. in Chemistry and Computer Science in 1995 and his Ph.D. in Chemistry in 2002, both from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, and spent 3 years as a Fulbright Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Massachusetts - Amherst and another year as a Zeff Postdoctoral Research Associate at the Technion. Since 2006 he heads the laboratory for Polymer-Based Nanomaterials Assembly at the Hebrew University, which focuses on developing self-assembly strategies that combine top-down fabrication and bottom-up assembly approaches for photonic and biomedical applications.
Prof. Shenhar is the author and co-author of 55 peer-reviewed publications and 6 patents, serves on the board of the Israeli Polymers and Plastic Society since 2014, and was a member of the Editorial Advisory Board of the journal Polymer (Elsevier) between 2013-2018.
University of Nottingham
Prior to joining the University of Nottingham as a lecturer in Dynamics and Control (June 2013) Dimitrios conducted research in Structural Dynamics and Vibroacoustics within EADS Astrium (currently Airbus Defense and Space) at Les Mureaux, France (2009-'12). The research was funded by the EU FP7 project coded MID-FREQUENCY and resulted in the attribution of a PhD from the Ecole Centrale de Lyon. He also holds a MSc with Distinction in Automotive Systems Engineering by Loughborough University (2008-'09) and a Masters in Mechanical Engineering from the National Technical University of Athens (2003-'08).
