ABOUT ME

I'm a postdoctoral researcher at the Computing + Mathematical Sciences at Caltech.

I work on computational inverse problems relating to imaging black hole dynamics as a member of Prof. Katie Bouman's research group and the Event Horizon Telescope Collaboration.

 

My research focuses on developing new tools for computational imaging problems at the forefront of physics. The approach that I take blends the fundamental underlying physical processes 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 is a key enabler in a novel space mission CloudCT, led by Yoav Schechner, Ilan Koren, and Klaus Schilling, and set to launch in 2022. The mission of 10 coordinated nano-satellites will acquire multi-view images of clouds which will enable "seeing into the clouds" by characterizing the distribution of the droplets in 3D.

 

 

 

 

 

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.
