I am a research staff member at the Machine Learning for Healthcare and Life Sciences group in the IBM Haifa research lab in Israel. My main interest is in applying machine learning techniques to real world clinical and genomic data, in order to advance solutions to challenging problems in the healthcare and life sciences domains. Prior to joining IBM, I was VP of Research and Development at Rosetta Genomics, a biotechnology company focused on developing and commercializing next generation diagnostic tests for personalized medicine, based on the expression profiles of microRNAs in clinical samples. I received my Ph.D. in Neural Computation from the Hebrew University in 2003, conducting research in the theory and simulation of learning in artificial neural networks. I am the co-author of more than 20 papers and 16 patents.
