I will be setting up my own lab in Tel-Aviv university in 2011

check out my lab-blog for news at:[1]


  • 2007, PhD, Physical Chemistry, Hebrew University, Jerusalem, Israel
  • 2001, MS, Physical Chemistry, Hebrew University, Jerusalem, Israel
  • 2000, BS, Physics & Chemistry, Hebrew University, Jerusalem, Israel

Research interests

I'm interested in epigenetic modifications and their effect on transcription regulation and the structural dynamics of the genome. I try to apply advanced optical microscopy techniques to the study of DNA and assosiated proteins in-vitro and in-vivo
