Prof. Y. Feldman is at the Department of Applied Physics, The Hebrew University of Jerusalem. He received his M.S. degree in radio physics and the Ph.D. degree in Molecular Physics from the Kazan State University, USSR, in 1973 and 1981 respectively. From 1973 to 1991 he was with Laboratory of Molecular Biophysics of Kazan Institute of Biology of the Academy of Science of the USSR. In 1991 he immigrated to Israel and since 1991 he has been with the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, where he is currently the Full Professor and the Head of the Soft Condensed Physics Laboratory. His current interests include broadband dielectric spectroscopy in frequency and time domain; theory of dielectric polarization and relaxation; relaxation phenomena and strange kinetics in disordered materials; dielectric and electromagnetic properties of biological systems.
He is an internationally acknowledged expert in the area of soft condensed matter physics and dielectric spectroscopy. He has spent over 40 years in this field and has more than 400 scientific publications related to dielectric spectroscopy and its applications. He holds 11 patents in the areas of Electromagnetic properties of matter. In 1992 and 2010 the Israel Government acknowledged his work with an award for the outstanding contribution to the development of Israel Science, in 1998 he received the Kaye Award for the best innovation and invention. Feldman is a Director of The Centre for Electromagnetic Research and Characterization (CERC); he is a Secretary and Member of the International Dielectric Society (IDS) Board.
