Dr. Nava Ariel-Sternberg, got her Ph.D. from MIT in 2005, she worked as a process integrator at Intel Fab 18 until 2008 when she assumed the position of a materials R&D engineer at Elbit Systems ElectroOptics. In 2011 Dr. Ariel-Sternberg became the Tel Aviv University Center for Nanoscience and Nanotechnology Managing Director and from 2015 she has been working as the Director of the Columbia Nano Initiative (CNI) shared labs at Columbia University in the City of New York.


Dr. Amir Zangiabadi received his PhD from Case Western Reserve University in the field of Materials Science and Engineering in 2016. Shortly, he joined Columbia University as a postdoctoral researcher to focus his studies on Transmission Electron Microscopy on different types of materials (including 2 dimensional materials, magnetic and electronic materials, etc.). Recently, Dr. Zangiabadi joined Columbia Nano Initiative as a director Electron Microscopy labs and works on materials and biological sample preparation and imaging.

Description: In this webinar we will give an overview of the research interests and highlights at the Columbia Nano Initiative (CNI) of Columbia University. We are going to focus on the technological capabilities of Electron Microscopy (both Scanning and Transmission) that enable this research to be accomplished. We will briefly review electron microscopes and their wide range of applications in Materials Science and Biological Sciences. Furthermore, we will go over some of the recent examples and questions that our researchers at Columbia University were interested to study and answer by using electron microscopes.
