Fusing cities and technology.

I'm a PhD candidate at the City Science Group at the MIT Media Lab where I develop new tools and processes for shaping better urban environments. Previously, I was a Research Scientist at MIT Changing Places Group, where I oversaw the integration of the group’s diverse research in city simulation, urban mobility and compact living spaces, in order to provide comprehensive solutions for MIT CityScience Network collaborators. I co-teach City Science courses at MIT and design and urban-development studio at  Northeastern University. In 2015 I graduated MIT's  Master of Science in the Architecture and Urban Design [MAUD], during which I was a research assistant at the Center For Advanced Urbanism at MIT SA+P. Before coming to MIT, I gained over a decade of experience in large-scale urban design, institutional and public projects, city-science and data visualization. In 2008 I graduated the School of Architecture at Bezalel Academy of Arts & Design, Jerusalem (Summa Cum Laude) where I later became a Design Lecturer. Since 2003, I have practiced in leading architecture and design firms in the US, Europe and Israel while developed an independent body of work through design projects, competitions, research and exhibitions.
