I am experimental physicist currently working on collective behavior of cells, using concepts of "active matter". I did my Ph.D. at under guidance of Prof. Dan Davidov, Dr. Michael Golosovsky and Prof. Aroeti at The Hebrew University of Jerusalem. Afterwards, I did a postdoc at the laboratory of Dr. Ido Braslavsky. Currently I am a postdoc in the team of Dr. Pascal Silberzan in Institut Curie, Paris. PhD thesis: "Live cell biosensing with infrared surface plasmon spectroscopy" Postdoc I: "Controlled freezing and microscopy" Postdoc II: "Collective cell organization" Specialties: * Active nematics, Microscopy, Image processing, Surface plasmon, FTIR * Temperature control, Ice
