The Program for his first degree was planned with Prof. Avraham Shitzer from the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering in order to specialize in Bio-Mechanic. This multi-disciplinary program enable Andrei to evolve and combine two very different areas like Mechanical Engineering and Biology into direct route to PhD.

He also did research on the subject: " Nano-Particles in Bio-Tribology " under the supervision of Prof. Izhak Etsion from the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering. This research was presented during Koreterion Week in the Technion and was awarded the "Zeiden family" prize and Mechanical Engineering faculty prize for annual excellence project.


Today (2012): Andrey works as the director of R&D at a medical device company call Q Core Medical.
