About Me

Short BIO:

I did my PhD at Tel Aviv University under the supervision of Profs. Yakir Aharonov and Lev Vaidman. I then continued to a postdoc at the University of Bristol (specializing in quantum information) and a research associate position at the University of Ottawa (specializing in quantum photonics). I've been working on a variety of topics ranging from quantum foundations and quantum information to quantum optics, quantum field theory and quantum technology. I've been also conducting research in the areas of quantum gravity/cosmology. A main theme in many of the above topics is entanglement - a unique quantum phenomenon with numerous applications. Although being a theorist I've enjoyed successful collaborations with various experimental groups over the years. I won several Israeli prizes for excellency in research. Additional Information My main contributions include the development of advanced quantum measurement techniques (weak, protective, nonlocal, interaction-free, partial and sequential measurements), formulation of new effects in pre- and post-selected systems and analyses of nonlocal phenomena (both dynamic and kinematic)
