Postdoctoral Scholar

Autonomous Systems Lab

Stanford University


I’m a Postdoctoral Scholar at the Department of Aeronautics and Astronautics, Stanford University, working with Marco Pavone. I obtained a PhD in Computer Science from Tel Aviv University, where I was advised by Dan Halperin.

My research interests lie at the interface of computer science, robotics, and transportation sciences. I pursue deeper insights into the structural properties of fundamental problems in robotics and transportation, for the design of practical algorithmic approaches. My most recent research focuses on multi-robot systems and their application in smart mobility, with an emphasis on societal aspects.

For my work I received multiple awards, including the Clore Scholars and Fulbright Postdoctoral Fellowships, best paper awards and nominations ( 1, 2, 3, 4, 5), and teaching awards. In addition to my academic interests, I take pleasure in being outdoors (mountain biking and hiking), traveling around the world, and enjoy food, cooking, music, books, and meditation.
