I'm a professor in the physics department of the Technion, Israel, as part of the astrophysics group. I hold an ERC consolidator grant exploring the origins of thermonuclear supernovae. I am also the co-founder and member of the Minerva Center for life under extreme conditions.

I study supernovae and other explosive transient events as well as study gravitational dynamics at small and large scales; from the dynamics of planetesimals and asteroids in the Solar system and planetary moons to stellar dynamics and evolution of stars and massive black holes in galactic nuclei. I also work on gravitational wave sources,  planet formation, astrochemistry, and (non-astrophysics) quantum walks, modeling epidemics, and machine-learning usage for healthcare. I am seeking creative graduate students and post-docs; please contact me for further details. I love to explore ideas inside and outside science, and I'm always happy to collaborate.
