I recently joined Eleven Therapeutics as Senior Data Scientist. Shortly before that, I earned my Ph.D. from Princeton University, where I was a graduate researcher in the Lewis-Sigler Institute for Integrative Genomics, advised by Prof. Mona Singh. My doctoral research was in the field of computational molecular biology, where I developed novel ML and statistical algorithms for predicting protein interactions.
I was born in Philadelphia, PA, moved to Israel when I was three years old, and lived there most of my life. During high-school I majored in both Biology and Computer Science and developed passion for each on it's own. After my military service (8200 unit), I started my B.Sc. at Technion - Israel Institute of Technology. I studied in the CS department in the Bioinformatics track that enabled me to pursue both my passions. While studying, I was a Software Engineer Intern at Qualcomm Israel for two years, until I graduated and became a full time Software Engineer. The following summer, I moved to Princeton, NJ, to start my Ph.D. in Quantitative and Computational Biology in Princeton University.
In my free time I enjoy gymnastics, photography, scuba-diving, small interior design projects, and collecting dolls from around the world.
