Prof. Yael Nemirovsky (IEEE Fellow, IEE Fellow) is a member of the Faculty of Electrical Engineering.  She received her D.Sc. from Technion.

Nemirovsky had been involved in II-VI compounds and devices for IRFPAs and medical imaging.

Nemirovsky is a pioneer of Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems (MEMS) research in Israel and in the last decade her research has focused on Micro-Opto-Electro-Mechanical (MOEMS) Systems. In particular, CMOS-SOI-MEMS/NEMS Sensors & Imagers for the visible, IR and THz radiation. She has published approximately 180 papers in refereed journals, co-presented over 300 talks in conferences and filed for approximately 25 patents.

Nemirovsky is the recipient of an Israeli national award: "The Award for the Security of Israel" and Technion awards for "Best Teacher" and "Novel Applied Research". She also received the Kidron Foundation award for "Innovative Applied Research" and the USA R&D 100 2001 award recognizing the top 100 new inventions and products of the year in USA, 2004 Intel Award, 2008 IBM Faculty Award.
