Technion Program for Excellence

Asaf Horowicz / Technion Excellence Program

About myself: I was born in 1994, grew up in Haifa and graduated high school with extended Physics and Computer Science studies. Served as a software engineer in the IDF and then worked for 2 wonderful years, only to realize my real passion is astrophysics.

During high school and throughout the military service I studied Mathematics courses in the Open University.

 

Hobbies and activities: I love hiking and traveling around the world. Huge fan of diving, worked as a Divemaster before my studies. I enjoy any kind of extreme sports – rock climbing, bouldering, surfing, winter sports, completed a skydiving course, and also non-extreme such as football or yoga.

I play the ukulele, guitar, piano, harmonica and like to try any musical instrument I can lay my hands on.

When did you start the program?: Winter 2019.
