In short:

I am a Ph.D student in Yaron's Silberberg's ultrafast optics group, at the departement of Physics of Complex Systems at the Weizmann Institute of Science. Happily sharing my life with my wife Meital.

Here is my CV in pdf format.

My list of publications.

Some more details:

My research interests include spatio-temporal control of light (ultrafast pulse-shaping and wavefront shaping), quantum coherent control, nonlinear microscopy and spectroscopy, adaptive optics, computational imaging, compressed-sensing, photo-acoustics and optical solitons.

My M.Sc thesis: 'Solitary mode-locked Yb fiber laser utilizing a chirped-fiber-Bragg-grating for dispersion control' (in Hebrew).

My research page will be up soon, in the meantime, there are a few Ghost-imaging movies and pics to watch.
