A few words about me

I graduated an MSc in Electrical Engineering, Technion in 2008, in the field of signal and image processing.

I am currently in the industry.

My thesis research title is: "On Texture and Image Interpolation Using Markov Models". My research was held under the supervision of Dr. Moshe Porat in Electrical Engineering faculty, Technion.

My publications list appears below.

I was also a teaching assistant in Electrical Engineering during 2007-2008. Below appear the courses which I taught.

I was awarded a prize for excellence in Teaching in Winter semester 2008.

In 2003 I graduated a double major in Electrical Engineering and Physics at Technion. I was a member at the Technion's excellence program -  here you may find a link to my profile on the excellence program website.  

My Research Interests

·  Signal and image processing

·  Image and video interpolation

·  Visual systems

·  Image and video compression
