Lior Elbaz received his PhD in chemical engineering from the Ben-Gurion University, Israel, and is currently an Associate Professor at the Bar-Ilan University, Israel. During his graduate studies, he specialized in electrochemistry and worked on the development of bio-inspired catalysts for fuel cells. He continued his research in the field at the Los Alamos National Laboratory, NM, USA, a world leader in the development of fuel cell technology; there he worked on various aspects of this technology, from electrocatalysis to inorganic chemistry, materials chemistry and engineering as a postdoctoral associate. During his time there, he expended his interests into photovoltaics and metal-air batteries. He is now continuing his research on renewable energy related projects at the Department of Chemistry, Bar-Ilan University, Israel. Lior established the Israeli Fuel Cells Consortium in 2016 with the support of the Fuel Choices and Smart Mobility Initiative of the Israeli Prime Minister's Office, and heads it. This is a 12-member labs consortium with representation from all major universities in Israel. Lior is also involved in several research projects with industrial pratenrs who develop unique fuel cells.
