Lior joined the NEO Lab in August 2014 as M.Sc. student and continued to the direct Phd program. He received his B.Sc. degree in Physics (with Honors) from Tel-Aviv University in May 2014. During his B.Sc. he participated in a research project under the supervision of Prof. Yoram Dagan, studying the behavior of quantum capacitance in 2D electron gas formed by the contact surface of two oxide insulators. At the NEO Lab Lior studies nonlinear nano-plasmonics.
