I'm a PhD candidate at the MIT Media Lab City Science Group, a lecturer at Northeastern University, an architect and an urban designer working to fuse cities and technology. My research is on novel methods for urban modeling and simulation, future mobility and decentralized participation. In recent years, I've coordinated and deployed a worldwide network of City Science Living-Labs (in Boston, Hamburg, Shanghai, Andorra and Helsinki) in an effort to confront my lab work with real-world challenges. My work received awards from the European Commission, the OECD, the Israeli Gov., was featured by The Guardian, 60 Minutes and The New York Times and was displayed in exhibitions, conferences and summits worldwide. I've a Master of Science from MIT and a Bachelor in Architecture (cum Laude) from Bezalel Academy in Jerusalem.
