Vlad received his Ph.D. in chemistry in 2000 from the Ben-Gurion University of the Negev in Israel. In 2003, he completed his postdoctoral studies in the Humboldt University of Berlin where he investigated the photophysical phenomenon of charge transfer in Rhodopsin using the new synthetic ﬂuorescent analogues of retinal. In 2003-2006, he had managed the R&D of PheroCap Ltd specializing in agrochemical formulations and new microencapsulation techniques. In 2006-2011, he practiced patent law in Israel working in different patent and law ofﬁces. In 2011-2014, Vlad resided in Singapore and worked as the R&D manager in the academic CREATE program "Nanomaterials for Water and Energy Management”, and as a lecturer in Nanyang Technological University. Upon completion of the project, Vlad returned to Israel and joined Ben-Ami & Associates.
