Technion Program for Excellence

Uri Kaynan / Physics

About myself: I was born in 1989 and lived most of my life in Kfar-Yona (a town near Netanya). After 3.5 years of service in the IDF I volunteered as a counselor in a Jewish summer camp at the US, and then almost immediately started my studies. I wanted to study a wide variety of subjects, ranging from computer science, biology & chemistry, to psychology, to music…eventually I decided to go with exact sciences, and so I chose physics and mathematics, oriented eventually towards research – right now it seems it will be somewhere in the field of biology.

When did you start the program: Winter 2013 (second year).

Hobbies and other activities: I’ve been playing the saxophone since I was 10. I enjoy instructing, counseling and teaching. In my free time I dance and teach Salsa and West-Coast-Swing.
