Technion Program for Excellence

Sarah Weisman / Chemical Engineering

First degree in Chemical Engineering at the Technion.
Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering at the Technion (2005).

Postdoc at CSIRO

Participated in the Technion Excellence Program: October 1997 – December 2000.

Sarah used the academic benefits of the program to study more courses than usually permitted in a semester and to study a few advanced courses or courses outside the usual Chemical Engineering curriculum without having all the pre-requisites.

She carried out some research that continued into her doctorate under the direction of Prof. Yeshayahu Talmon from the Chemical Engineering faculty on the topic:”Microstructure Characterization of DNA-Lipid  Systems”.

Today (2012): Sarah is a research scientist at the CSIRO government research organization in Australia, working on development of insect silks as biomaterials.
