Tomer Noyhouzer is currently a post-doctorate Fellow at McGill University, developing electrochemical microfluidic systems and analytical sensors.
Tomer has received his B.Sc in Chemistry at Ben-Gurion University, and his M.Sc. at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem with focus on Electrochemistry. During his M.Sc. he worked with Prof. Daniel Mandler and Prof. Ron Kohen.
For his Ph.D. studies at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, he worked under the guidance of Prof. Daniel Mandler on sensor development and remote sensing. As part of his research work he had developed a highly selective electrode for Cadmium, a universal potentiometric sensor and new type of an electrochemical flow cell. He was awarded the Israel Analytical Society excellence award and the Teva Pharmaceuticals scholarship. He also received the Rotary Global Grant to continue his post-doctorate studies with Prof. Janine Mauzeroll at McGill. Tomer has authored several peer-reviewed papers and one book chapter. He has also obtained three patents in the area of microfluidics and drug delivery and has licensed his technology to E-Innovation. A company he founded together with Prof. Mauzeroll and three of his colleagues. E-Innovation won the McGill Dobson Cup and the MTL Student startup competition.
Tomer is an avid runner and has participated in the Montreal half-marathon twice; he will attempt to run the full marathon in the summer of 2016. He lives with his wife, son and Liza (the family dog) in Montreal, Canada.
He used to take care of a cougar named Shaishoo, including a 7-hour daily walk, for three months in Bolivia during a backpacking trip in 2002.
