About Me

"The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing"
Albert Einstein

My passion is to translate solid science into real-life solutions.

I am a Biotechnology Ph.D. student at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and ARO (Israel).  My Ph.D. focuses on identifying novel antimicrobials-producing gene clusters in the root microbiome, using cutting-edge molecular biology, data sciences, and computational tools. 

Alongside my academic research, I'm an MBA candidate at the Biomed track, which focuses on Biomedical entrepreneurship.
