Technion Program for Excellence

Assaf Shapira / Mathematics, Physics

About myself:

I was born in Haifa in 1989. I started studying mathematics and physics in the Technion in Spring 2010 (and joined the program the next semester), but I did take some courses in chemistry here during high school, as a student in Technion’s Chemistry faculty’s Archimedes project. In my senior high school year I competed in the International Chemistry Olympiad in Russia, and in the Asian Physics Olympiad in China.

What year did you start the Program: Winter 2011

Hobbies and other activities: I play the cello, and trying to find people to play chamber music with. I speak Hebrew, English, some German and a little French, and I’m currently learning some Russian and Arabic.
