Her research is focused on harnessing new materials for the development of novel nanoelectronics devices, and spans a wide range of topics, including material fabrication, design, and characterization. It involves state-of-the-art characterization tools, such as atomic-resolution microscopes and a particle accelerator.

Lishai’s latest advance, published in Advanced Functional Materials in 2023, presented a route for manipulating the electric properties of a material by precise control of the distance between two adjacent atoms. This fine tuning of the material’s properties is part of the foundations needed to develop future nanoelectronics devices from novel materials. This research was recently awarded the Jacobs Prize for Outstanding Publication (2024).

Lishai grew up in Binyamina and served in the artillery unit of the Israel Defense Forces from 2009 to 2012. She earned her Technion bachelor’s degrees in materials science and engineering, and in chemistry, and is now a Ph.D. candidate in the lab of Professor Lior Kornblum. While pursuing her Ph.D., Lishai has received several awards, most recently the Yablonovitch Research Prize (2023) and the Jacobs-Qualcomm Fellowship (2024).
