I head the experimental astrophysics group
at the department of particle physics and astrophysics at the Weizmann Institute of Science in Israel.
Our research projects are presented in more detail below. Additional related activity takes place at
the Benoziyo Center for Astrophysics.
At this time, we are looking for graduate students and postdocs.
