Prof. Ido Braslavksy is based at The Robert H. Smith Faculty of Agriculture, Food, and Environment, at The Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Rehovot, Israel.
His research focuses on ice growth and its control. His Ph.D. studies were on Ice Physics at the Israel Institute of Technology. After postdoc positions at Weizmann Institute, Israel and Caltech, USA, where he conducted biophysics studies on DNA –proteins interactions and developed a single-molecule DNA sequencing method, he initiated a study on ice-binding proteins biophysics at Ohio University Physics department. Today, Prof. Braslavsky is based at The Hebrew University of Jerusalem, The Robert H. Smith Faculty of Agriculture, Food and Environment, and is working on the biophysics of ice-binding proteins and their applications in cryobiology, on ice growth manipulation by electromagnetic irradiation and development of directional freezing methods. In the last ten years, his group has published more than 25 papers on ice-binding proteins and ice growth control.
