Biography

I obtained my bachelor degrees in Electrical Engineering and Physics at Tel Aviv University. I then moved to the Weizmann Institute of Science, doing my Master's thesis under the supervision of Profs. Amir Yacoby and Eli Zeldov, developing a unique superconducting quantum interference device (SQUID). In my doctoral thesis, under the supervision of Prof. Zeldov, I worked on a novel scanning SQUID microscope for the study of magnetic phenomena on the nanoscale, which nowadays reaches a single electron spin sensitivity. After a short interlude in industry in the field of thermoelectrics I moved back to the Weizmann Institute of Science for a post-doctoral position at the Atomic Scale Physics laboratory. In July 2014 I joined the 3rd Institute of Physics in the University of Stuttgart, leading the scanning probe microscopy group. In August 2014, I was awarded the Alexander von Humboldt Fellowship for Postdoctoral Researchers. In October 2017, I was appointed as a Senior Scientist in the Department of Chemical and Biological Physics at the Weizmann Institute of Science.
