I earned a bachelor's degree in computer science and computational biology from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. I did my graduate work under the supervision of Adi Mizrahi and Israel Nelken in the Edmond and Lily Safra Center for Brain Sciences (ELSC), studying neural population organization and dynamics in the mouse auditory cortex using two-photon imaging. I did my post-doctoral work with Loren Frank at the University of California, San Francisco, studying cortical-hippocampal communication during memory consolidation using electrophysiological recordings in freely-behaving rats.

I am married to Ada and am the father of Ilai and Hillel.
