ABOUT ME


I'm a robotics researcher with a great passion for agricultural based robotics. I believe that agricultural robots have the potential to increase food production and reduce world hunger for social good. Other benefits for agricultural robots include reduced pesticides application, better and productive use of human skills, reduced health risks for human in the field, and much more.

I received my Ph.D. in 2016 in Industrial Engineering from Ben-Gurion University of the Negev. In my Phd thesis I developed an innovative human-robotic collaborative sprayer focusing on development of intelligent sensing algorithms and design and human robot interaction aspects. In parallel, I worked as a research engineer in the Agricultural Engineering Department at Israel’s Agriculture Research Organization, the Volcani Center. There I focused on R&D agricultural robotics topics including mobile robots kinematics, in field\row navigation, machine vision algorithms development, implementation, and evaluation, and agricultural robotics design, implementation and evaluation. Currently, I'm a postdoctoral researcher at UC Berkeley and the CITRIS and the Banatao Institute focusing on precision irrigation.
