I am an assistant professor (senior lecturer) at the School of Mechanical Engineering at Tel-Aviv University and the head of the new robotics lab.
In 2016-2018, I was a post-doctoral research fellow at the Coordinated Science Lab (Bretl research group), University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. In 2018-2019, I was a post-doctoral research associate in the Pracsys lab and Rutgers Robot Learning Lab at the Department of Computer Science, Rutgers University, working with Prof. Kostas Bekris and Prof. Abdeslam Boularias. Previously, I was a PhD student, lecturer and teaching assistant at the department of Mechanical Engineering of Ben Gurion University of the Negev, and a member of the Robotics Laboratory.
I received my B.Sc. in 2008, M.Sc. in 2012 and Ph.D. in 2016 from the department of Mechanical Engineering of Ben-Gurion University of the Negev. My research interests are in the field of dynamic manipulations, grasping, regrasping, machine learning, climbing robots and robot design.
