I develop computational imaging tools for scientific discovery.
My work is interdisciplinary by nature, at the intersection of artificial intelligence and physics. I am interested in defining and solving novel inverse problems in diverse fields: from astrophysics to climate.
I am a postdoctoral researcher with Katie Bouman at the Computing + Mathematical Sciences department at Caltech where I work on imaging black holes with the Event Horizon Telescope (EHT) (more about this work on this page).
Prior to that, I received my Ph.D. from the Technion (EE) under the supervision of Yoav Schechner. Thesis: Volumetric Imaging of the Natural Environment. My research thesis into cloud tomography paved the way for a novel space mission CloudCT. The mission of coordinated nano-satellites will enable "seeing into the clouds" (more details) with the goal of advancing our understanding of cloud physics and improving climate models.
