Research interests

Prof. Roni Kasher did his BSc in Geology and Chemistry, and MSc and Ph.D. in Organic Chemistry from The Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Israel, whereas his postdoc was at Weizmann Institute of Science (Rehovot, Israel). He joined BGU at 2005 and since 2017 he is an associate professor. Significant accomplishments of Prof. Kasher are development of novel oligoamide thin-film membranes for nanofiltration, stabilizing metal-organic framework (MOF) nanoparticles on UF membranes for selective removal of pollutants, the development of antifouling reverse osmosis membranes by covalent linking of antimicrobial peptides, antifouling membrane modifications for mitigating with calcium phosphate scaling in reverse osmosis desalination of domestic wastewater, understanding silica scaling mechanisms in brackish water desalination, and the use of saline groundwater as an alternative for seawater as feed for desalination. R. Kasher received many awards and grants, among them are the Israel Science Foundation (ISF) in a joint program with China (NSFC), the German-Israeli Foundation for Science (GIF), and BMBF-MOST (Germany-Israel Water Program). He is a coauthor of 70 research articles in high-impact journals and in addition some patents and book chapters.
