I’m a roboticist specializing in multi-robot systems and their applications to smart mobility. My research draws upon ideas across the disciplines of computer science, engineering, and transportation science, to develop scalable algorithms with substantial guarantees for control and decision-making of multi-robot systems.

Currently, I’m a Postdoctoral Scholar in the Faculty of Computer Science, Technion, hosted by Oren Salzman. Prior to that, I was a postdoc in the Department of Aeronautics and Astronautics, Stanford University, in Marco Pavone’s group. I obtained BSc, MSc, and PhD degrees in Computer Science from Tel Aviv University, where I was advised by Dan Halperin. For my academic 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.

Besides 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.
