I am a member of the Machine Learning Technologies Group at the IBM research lab in Haifa.

I hold a bachelor degree in computer engineering from the Technion Institute of Technology. I have completed my masters degree in computer engineering in the Tel-Aviv University, under the supervision of Prof. Dana Ron and Dr. Raed Saabne. My thesis focused on online handwriting recogntion in the Arabic language.

I am currently a Ph.D Student in the Sagol department of neurobiology in the Haifa University under the supervision of Dr. Genela Morris. In my research, I investigate dimensionality reduction processes and state representation mechanisms in the brain.

I worked as a software developer and lead data science projects for more than 7 years.
In the last several years, I participate in machine learning research efforts.

I am interested in Learning mechanisms, both artificial and natural.
