I am an assistant professor at the computer science department at the Technion - Israel Institute of Technology. Prior to that I was postdoctoral fellow in the Robotics Institute at Carnegie Mellon University where I worked at the Search-based Planning Laboratory with Professor Maxim Likhachev. Before that, I was working at the Personal Robotics Lab with Professor Siddhartha Srinivasa.
I completed my PhD in the School of Computer Science at Tel Aviv University, under the supervision of Professor Dan Halperin where I worked on algorithmic robot motion planning. I earned my BSc with honors from the Technion and my MSc with honors from Tel Aviv University.
I am looking for extremely-motivated undergraduate, masters, and Ph.D. students with strong algorithmic background to work on algorithmic problems in robot motion planning. To get a sense of my research focus, read this research statement. If you are interested, and have the necessary background, please send me an email with your CV and a few sentences describing your academic background.
I am co-organizing the Technion Robotics Seminar together with Vadim Indelman, Erez Karpas, Aviv Tamar and Amir Degani. This is a campus-wide seminar, aimed at everyone who is interested in robotics. We will meet every other Monday at 12:30 at Taub 337 (CS building) starting October 28'th. Details will be provided in the seminar's webpage.
