Menny started his B.Sc. in 2004, and finished his studies in Chemistry (Focus: pharmaceutical chemistry), at Bar-Ilan University, Summa Cum Laude.  In 2009 he finished his M.Sc. Summa Cum Laude, at Bar-Ilan University. Topic: "Improving and Understanding of Quantum Dots Sensitized Solar Cells (QDSSCs): Synthesis Characterization and Application". Supervisor: Prof. Arie Zaban. Then immediately he started an integrated track toward his Ph.D. in the field of photo electrochemical solar cells, focusing quantum dot sensitized solar cells. The aim of his research is to understand the mechanisms in QDSSCs and to apply this understanding towards the innovative design, synthesis and fabrication of efficient QDs based solar cells.
