I am a Ph.D. Candidate at Princeton University in the Lewis-Sigler Institute for Integrative Genomics, advised by Prof. Mona Singh. My research is in the field of Computational Biology where I explore novel algorithms for predicting functional areas within proteins.
I was born in Philadelphia, PA, moved to Israel at the age of 3 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 . In Summer 2014 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.
