I am currently a postdoctoral fellow at the Technion – Israel Institute of Technology in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering, working with assistant professor Noy Cohen. My current research involves the spontaneous stability of soft layered solids. I obtained a PhD in the field of biomechanics, under the supervision of Prof. David Durban, in the faculty of Aerospace Engineering at the Technion. My PhD dissertation dealt with the mechanical stabiltiy analysis of soft tissues, and also with the sensititvity of vascular material models to uncertainties in input data. I received my B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees in aerospace engineering at Technion.
