Dr. Jerry Alfred Fereiro

Dr. Fereiro completed his doctorate in Chemistry in University of Alberta, Canada and he is currently pursuing a postdoctoral research at the Weizmann Institute of Science in the Department of Materials and Interfaces. His principal research interests lie in the field of molecular electronics. During his PhD at University of Alberta, he investigated the interaction of light with molecular junctions, measuring the photocurrent spectra and understanding the complex phenomenon of charge transfer process. In his current position, he examines dark and light-induced electronic transport mechanisms via proteins, which are remarkably efficient electronic conductors, with a central vision of using proteins as potential building components for future bio-electronic devices.
