I’m Ofer Kedem, a physical / materials chemist, currently Assistant Professor of Chemistry at Marquette University. In my current research, we develop novel catalysts, combining inorganic nanomaterials with organic modifications to produce enhanced catalytic properties. We also invent highly capable methods to photopattern molecules and nanomaterials.
Previously, as a postdoctoral fellow (Northwestern University), I developed advanced organic electronic devices based on the bio-inspired ratcheting principle, a project combining advanced fabrication with computational studies. As a graduate student (Weizmann Institute of Science), I studied localized surface plasmon resonance (LSPR) systems, for sensing and fluorescence enhancement.
