Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences (EECS)
I am a postdoc in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences (EECS) at UC Berkeley. I have the pleasure of being co-advised by Prof. Michael (Miki) Lustig (UC Berkeley) and Prof. Shreyas Vasanawala (Stanford). I work with their collaborative groups on developing MRI reconstruction methods for rapid scans. My research leverages Machine Learning, physics-based modelling and computational imaging.
In 2015-2019 I was a PhD student at the Technion - Israel Institute of Technology. I spent wonderful years in the lab of my PhD advisor Prof. Haim Azhari, during which I developed sparsity-based methods for MR image reconstruction.
May 2021: our "Subtle Inverse Crimes" abstract received a magna cum laude award in the ISMRM conference and was selected as a finalist in the Magnetic Moments competition. Check it out to see our surprising results! The abstract is here and the video is is here .
May 2021: Together with the Reproducible Research Study Group (RRSG) committee, I'm organizing the MR-Pub Competition for Interactive Code Demos. We invite submissions of code demos related to abstracts or educational material published in the ISMRM'21 conference. Details here.
March 2021: I was elected for the position of the Trainee Representative in the ISMRM Reproducible Research Study Group Governing Committee.
December 2020: I gave a tutorial on advanced regularization methods for dynamic MRI as part of the 2nd BART webinar. The recording and python tutorial (Jupyter notebook) are available here.
September 2020: I was awarded the Israel Council for Higher Education (Vatat) National Fellowship for Excelling Post-doctoral Researchers in Data Science for my postdoctoral studies in UC Berkeley and Stanford.
