Dana Medina-Tautz obtained her Ph.D. in Chemistry in 2010 from Bar-Ilan University. In 2011 Dana moved to the Ludiwg-Maximilians-Universität München (LMU, chair Prof. Thomas Bein) as a Minerva fellow to conduct a postdoctoral research, where she is leading in her current capacity a young research group and perusing her habilitation. The research pursued by Dana’s group is focused on the design and synthesis of functional porous crystalline frameworks, particularly 2D layered structures. Large part of the research is dedicated to the development of novel on-surface deposition techniques with the goal of bringing periodic porous materials towards thin film applications in electronics, sensing and sieving.
