About Me

About Me

I was born in Israel but grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area. In 2010 I moved to Boston to attend Boston University, where I worked on blazars with the BU Blazar Group (and where I experienced my first real winter). After graduating from BU in 2014, I moved to Washington D.C. and worked at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center for a year. At Goddard, I studied quiescent solar X-ray flares with the RHESSI team.

In 2015, I moved to Ann Arbor, MI to begin my graduate studies at the University of Michigan. At UofM I began to study the X-ray activity of dual and binary AGN systems, and I successfully defended my thesis in Summer 2020.

Currently I work at KIPAC at Stanford University as a Porat Postdoctoral Fellow.

When I'm not doing science

I enjoy running, hiking, gardening, and cats. I just moved back to the Bay Area, and I enjoy exploring the new area on my bike, Sushi.

Some of my favorite activities: running/biking along the many trails near my home, growing spicy chili peppers, searching for cool succulents and cacti (check out Poots), and trying out the many, nearby, taco trucks.
