Update: I am on the job market looking for an assistant professor tenure track position
I'm a postdoctoral researcher at the Computing + Mathematical Sciences at Caltech.
I work on computational inverse problems relating to imaging black holes as a member of Katie Bouman's research group and the Event Horizon Telescope Collaboration.
My research focuses on developing new computational tools for scientific discovery. My work is interdisciplinary blending physical models with optimization, signal processing, and artificial intelligence.
I received my Ph.D. (direct track) from the EE department at the Technion - Israel Institute of Technology under the supervision of Prof. Yoav Schechner. Thesis: Volumetric Imaging of the Natural Environment. My research thesis into cloud tomography paved the way to a novel space mission CloudCT, led by Yoav Schechner, Ilan Koren, and Klaus Schilling, and set to launch in 2023. The mission of 10 coordinated nano-satellites will enable "seeing into the clouds" in 3D (more details) with the goal of studying cloud physics to improve climate models.
During my Ph.D. I interned at the Google Research Machine Perception team in Tel Aviv, Israel (2018) and at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) Aerosols and Clouds group in California, USA (2015).
I am supported by the Zuckerman STEM and Technion Viterbi postdoctoral fellowships.
