Short Bio

Assistant Professor Lior Kornblum heads the Oxide Electronics Lab at the Sara and Moshe Zisapel Micro-Nano Electronics Center, the Viterbi Faculty of Electrical and Computer Engineering. The group studies the interface between electronics, materials and physics of oxides, semiconductors and their devices.

Kornblum joined the Technion’s Viterbi Faculty of Computer and Electrical Engineering in 2016, and he is a member of the Grand Technion Energy Program (GTEP) and the Russell Berrie Nanotechnology Institute (RBNI). Lior obtained his PhD in Materials Science and Engineering at the Technion in 2012, and then spent three years as a postdoc associate at the Dept. of Applied Physics, Yale University, where he specialized in oxide MBE, focusing on epitaxy of oxides on semiconductors. Lior has been the recipient of the Leona Channin Career Development Chair (2017), the Umbrella Award for Energy Research (2019), the Henri Gutwirth Research Excellence Award (2019) and various teaching commendations.
