Evgeny Katz received his PhD in Chemistry from Frumkin Institute of Electrochemistry, Russian Academy of Sciences, Moscow, Russia in 1983. He was a senior researcher at the Institute of Photosynthesis, Russian Academy of Sciences, Pushchino, Russia, 1983-1991. During 1992 and 1993 he performed research at München Technische Universität in Germany as a Humboldt fellow. Later, from 1993 to 2006, Dr. Katz was a Research Associate Professor at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. In 2006 he joined the Department of Chemistry & Biomolecular Science, Clarkson University, as the Milton Kerker Chaired Professor of Chemistry. He has (co)authored over 420 papers in peer-reviewed journals/books with total citations of more than 25,000 (Hirsch-index 82) and holds more than 20 international patents. He has edited four books on different topics, including bioelectronics, molecular and biomolecular computing, implantable bioelectronics and forensic science. He was an Editor-in-Chief for IEEE Sensors Journal (2009-2012) and he is a member of the editorial boards of many other journals. His scientific interests are in the broad areas of bioelectronics, biosensors, biofuel cells, biomolecular information processing (bio-computing) and recently, in forensic science. In 2011, Thomson Reuters released data identifying the world’s top 100 chemists over the past 10 years as ranked by the impact of their published research. Evgeny Katz was included in that list as # 63 from an approximate total of a million chemists indexed by Thomson Reuters. Evgeny Katz was also included in the list of top cited chemists, with a worldwide rank of 384 based on his H-index.
