Eugenii Katz is a Senior Research Associate at the Institute of Chemistry, The Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Israel. He completed his Ph.D. in 1983 at the Frumkin Institute of Electrochemistry, Moscow, and until 1991 acted as senior scientist at the Institute of Photosynthesis, Pushchino, Russia. In 1991 he performed postdoctoral research at The Hebrew University of Jerusalem and later, as a recipient of the Humboldt scholarship, he worked at the Technical University of Munich (1993). He joined the research group of I. Willner at the Hebrew University in 1994. Dr. Katz holds the Kaye Awards for Scientific Innovations (1995 and 2004). His research interests include electroanalytical chemistry, functionalized monolayers, functionalized nanoparticles, biosensors, biofuel cells and bioelectronics.
