Participated in the Technion Excellence Program: June1993 – June 1996.
During his studies in the framework of the Program utilized the academic advantages to skip preliminary courses and take advanced courses, to build a multi-disciplinary curriculum. He carried out research in “computational quantum chemistry“, under the direction of Prof. Yitzhak Apeloig from the Faculty of Chemistry.
About the Program: “It enabled me to acquire a rich and multi-disciplinary education. Today I can approach challenging scientific problems, and utilize tools and ideas from diverse fields. I have dealt with a variety of problems in the areas of chemistry (organometallic, physical, electrochemistry), physics (solid state physics, nano-materials, devices) and biology (medical imaging).
Today (2012): Assistant Professor in the University of Maryland.
Recommendation to Program participants: “Being in the program implies that you have a variety of options and privileges. Utilize them to the fullest.”
