Short Biography:

I completed my B.Sc. degree at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering at the Technion Israel Institute of Technology in 1991. I then moved to Beer-Sheva and completed my M.Sc. degree at the Department Electrical and Computer Engineering at the BenGurion University of the Negev in 1993. My advisor was Prof. Arnon Cohen. During 1993-1995 I worked as a software engineer for Elta systems group. In 1995 I rejoined the BenGurion University of the Negev as head of the manufacturing laboratories at the Department Industrial Engineering and Management, where I later completed my Ph.D. in 2002. My thesis was about the development and testing of an autonomous automatic guided vehicle system for material handling. My Advisors were Prof. Yael Edan and Prof. Mo Jamshidi. During 1997-1999 I worked as a research assistant at the NASA ACE center at the University of New-Mexico. From 2003 to 2005 I worked at the Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science at the Weizmann Institute of Science as a postdoctoral fellow. My host was Prof. Tamar Flash. In 2007 I re-joined the Department of Industrial Engineering & Management at the Ben-Gurion University of the Negev this time as a faculty member.
