My name is Amit Keren. I am married with three children. My main obsession is physics, but I also like to jog, bike, ski, and surf. At 21 I traveled for a year in South America. Then a bachelor degree at Tel Aviv university, MSc and Ph.D. at Columbia university New York, and Post Doc at Paris XI. I got a job at the Technion in 1997. Since then I went for a sabbatical year in Oxford. My main research areas are superconductivity and magnetism. My research is experimental and uses both table top experiments as well as large scale facilities such as nuclear reactors and particle accelerators. I teach undergraduate courses such as “quantum mechanics 1”, “statistical and thermal physics”, “solid state 1”. Occasionally I teach graduate courses such as: “experimental techniques in solid state” and “solid state 2”.
