    קורות חיים

    I received my PhD in Mathematics from the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences at New York University. I then spent six months on a fellowship in George Sugihara’s lab at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography, University of California, San Diego. After returning to Israel, I worked in industry for two years before taking a postdoctoral position to study infectious disease dynamics under the supervision of Amit Huppert and Uri Obolski at Tel Aviv University. In 2023, I joined the Azrieli Faculty of Medicine in Safed as a Senior Lecturer.

    מחקר

    As  a mathematical epidemiologist, I am interested in developing and applying methods of nonlinear dynamical systems to the study of infectious diseases.

    I am also interested in making diagnostic tests more reliable. I worked on  applications related to SARS-CoV-2 and am currently interested in applications for sexually transmitted infections.
