I received my Bachelor’s degree in Biology under the Technion Excellence Program in Israel. I did My masters and PhD with Prof. Naama Barkai at the Weizmann Institute of Science in Israel. The focus of my masters was mathematical models in yeast of biological timers and robust gradient detection. My PhD was focused on studying the evolution of anti-fungal drug resistance.
During my post-doc at the lab of Prof. Doron Lancet at the Weizmann Institute of science, I led the development of MalaCards – an integrated database of human diseases.
My main interest is systems biology with the long-term goal to study how concepts such as control, regulation, program and function, emerge in complex biological systems. I am mainly interested in applying and developing mathematical methodologies and bioinformatic tools for studying the design principles of biological systems. Also, I am interested to study how intricate web of interactions (among cellular components, among diseases etc.) affect function and how the network can be controlled by cellular context in a way that can be utilized for medical applications.
