I am currently a Research Assistant at Aran Lab, working on developing machine learning and deep learning tools for analyzing biological data, primarily single-cell RNA sequencing data. I am also interested in causal discovery in that domain, among others. Before joining Aran Lab, I was exploring research avenues in the intersection between deep learning and genomics (mainly NLP related) with Prof. Volodymyr Kuleshov’s group at Cornell University as a student researcher. Prior to that I was working as an algorithm developer and a data scientist in various fields such as physiological signal processing and time series analysis. In between, I also completed my undergraduate degree in Computer Science at the Technion, focusing on algorithmics (mainly ML/DL) and bioinformatics, and was supported by the Rothchild Fellowship for academic excellence.
