Dr. Graham de Ruiter
Dr. Graham de Ruiter completed his M.Sc studies at Leiden University. In 2008, he moved to the Weizmann Institute Science to pursue his PhD studies on sequence- dependent assembly strategies and molecular logic. Subsequently, he completed postdoctoral studies at Caltech, working on the synthesis of multi-metallic complexes for small molecule activation and oxygen atom transfer reactions. Upon returning to Israel in 2017, he was appointed to a faculty position at the Technion's Faculty of Chemistry. His research focuses on using inorganic materials to address fundamental challenges related to solar energy conversion and small-molecule activation in order to provide clean and cost-effective methods for maintaining a sustainable energy landscape.
