Short Bio

I received my B.Sc. in Mechanical Engineering (2006), B.Sc. in Aerospace Engineering (2007), M.S.c (2013, during direct track to PhD), and PhD in Aerospace Engineering (2016) from the Technion. From 2007 to 2017 I was working as a Research Engineer in the department of Aerodynamics at RAFAEL – Advanced Defense Systems. In 2017 I received the MIT-Technion Postdoctoral Fellowship and joined the Reacting Gas Dynamics Laboratory in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology as a postdoctoral fellow under the supervision of Prof. Ahmed Ghoniem. In 2018 I joined the Applied Mathematics Laboratory at MIT as a Postdoctoral Research Associate under the supervision of Prof. John Bush. Since 2019 I am an Assistant Professor in the Faculty of Aerospace Engineering at the Technion.
