I am an Assistant Professor at the Technion - Israel Institute of Technology (starting July 2014).

Please refer to my Technion website for up-to-date information.


I was a postdoctoral fellow at the Institute of Robotics and Intelligent Machines (IRIM) at Georgia Tech, where I worked with Frank Dellaert on topics that combine mobile robotics and computer vision. Before joining Georgia Tech, I finished my Ph.D. degree at the Technion, where I was supervised by Pini Gurfil, Ehud Rivlin and Hector Rotstein. My Ph.D. research focused on several topics in vision-aided navigation and distributed cooperative navigation.
