Born in 1975, Edit Tshuva conducted her Ph.D. studies under the supervision of Prof. Moshe Kol at Tel-Aviv University, working on group IV metal complexes as highly active and stereo-selective catalysts for the polymerization of alpha-olefins. After graduating in the year of 2001, she spent two years at The Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) working as a postdoctoral fellow under the supervision of Prof. Stephen J. Lippard on synthetic models for carboxylato-bridged di-iron enzymes. In 2003 she joined the Hebrew University of Jerusalem as a Senior Lecturer, and was promoted to Associate Professor in 2009 and to Full Professor in 2016. Her research group is interested in various topics that relate to synthetic bioinorganic chemistry, applying coordination chemistry techniques in the synthesis and investigation of transition metal complexes that have valuable biological and medicinal applications.
