A short summary of my career path:
From 2015: Royal Society Dorothy Hodgkin Research Fellow at the Cognition and Brain Sciences Unit, Cambridge, UK. This is a highly-competitive fellowship to establish independent lines of research (1 of 8 fellowships for all the UK).
2012-2014: Postdoctoral research fellow at the Cognition and Brain Sciences Unit, Cambridge, UK. I worked with John Duncan and studied the neural representations of task-related information.
2011-2012: Postdoctoral research fellow at the School of Psychological Sciences, Tel-Aviv University, Israel. I worked with Galit Yovel and looked at the neural representations of objects in the visual system and how they are modulated by surrounding objects.
2004-2010: PhD in systems neuroscience at the Gonda Multidisciplinary Brain Research Center, Bar-Ilan University, Israel. I worked with Izhar Bar-Gad and Moshe Abeles and used single-cell recordings and electrical stimulation in the basal ganglia to understand the neural mechanisms underlying deep brain stimulation (DBS) in Parkinsonism.
2000-2004: Software engineer, Dmatek Ltd. (currently 3M), Tel-Aviv, Israel.
1999-2002: B.Sc. Summa cum Laude in Computer Science and Psychology (2 majors), Tel-Aviv University, Israel.
