Technion – Israel Institute of Technology


I am a senior lecturer (assistant professor) at the Technion - Israel Institute of Technology, Faculty of Industrial Engineering and Management.   My research has two themes: The first is applying machine learning to the field of healthcare, especially in terms of providing physicians with decision support tools based on big health data. The second is the intersection of machine learning and causal inference, with a focus on using deep-learning methods for causal inference.   Previously, I was a postdoctoral researcher in Prof. David Sontag’s Clinical Machine Learning Lab in NYU and then MIT. I completed my PhD studies at the School of Computer Science & Engineering at The Hebrew University of Jerusalem, under the guidance of Prof. Gal Chechik and Prof. Daphna Weinshall. From 2011 to 2014 I was a recipient of Google's European Fellowship in Machine Learning.
