Dr. Ofer Beeri

I’m a visiting scientist in Prof. Dunand Group. I have completed all my degrees in the department of Materials Engineering, Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, Beer-Sheva, Israel. My Ph.D. thesis was “Classical and Statistical Thermodynamics of Unstable Intermetallic Hydrides at Hydrogen Pressures Up to 1,000 Atmospheres". During the last 12 years I was working as a material science researcher in the Nuclear Research Center Negev (NRCN), but two years of working in TeraCross LTD (startup that designed a switch fabric chipset for terabit routers).

My main fields of interest includes: Physical-metallurgy and thermodynamics of metals including experiment and theory, classical and statistical thermodynamics of hydrogen-metal reactions, materials characterization, hydrogen-metal interaction, hydrides and hydrogen embrittlement, high pressure gas systems and vacuum technology.

During my stay in Northwestern University I am involved in two research projects, one is hydrogen induced superplasticity in metal wires and the other is the improvement of aging resistance and cost reduction of the Al-Sc alloy by addition of rare earth elements
