Speakers

Lilac Amirav
Associate Professor @Technion – Israel Institute of Technology
Lilac Amirav received a Bachelor’s degree (B.Sc.) from Tel Aviv University at the age of 18. She received numerous awards for her PhD dissertation from Technion, and the Rothschild and ‘Sara Lee Schupf’ postdoctoral fellowships. After her postdoctoral research with Prof. Paul Alivisatos at the Univ. of California, Berkeley, Amirav joined the Schulich Faculty of Chemistry at the Technion–Israel Institute of Technology as an Assistant Professor. She is affiliated with the Russell Berrie Nanotechnology Institute (RBNI), and the Grand Technion Energy Program (GTEP), and a member of the I-CORE “Israel Solar Fuels Consortium” center of excellence in renewable and sustainable energy. “I strongly believe that the search for clean and renewable energy sources is crucial. With the looming energy crisis on one hand, and environmental aspects, mainly global warming, on the other, I think this is our duty to try and amend the problem for the next generation.”
Dr. Neil J. Tabor
Professor @Dept. of Earth Sciences Southern Methodist University
Neil Tabor grew up in Nebraska where he spent his early years living on a farm near the confluence of the Missouri and Platte Rivers. During his freshman year of college in Olympia, WA he enrolled in a course named Rocks, Water & Chemistry. While touring National & State Parks he realized how much he had learned about the Earth. He enrolled as a Geology major at the Univ. of Nebraska, and never looked back through his studies there and at the Univ. of California, where he completed his MS. and PhD degrees. In 2002, he moved to SMU as a post-doctoral researcher, then as assistant, associate, and full professor. His work probes the chemistry of the modern world as well as the geochemistry of the ancient world through the study of rocks and fossils and has contributed substantially toward understanding atmospheric carbon dioxide concentrations and their relationship to global climate change over the past 440 million years. Neil, his wife and their 2 boys (aged 12, 14), enjoy travelling.
