I'm an associate 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 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, supernovae, astrochemistry and (non-astrophysics) quantum walks. I am looking for 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.
