I am an associate proffesor at the Institute of Earth Sciences in the Hebrew University in Jerusalem. Before I joined the Hebrew University in  2014 I was a postdoc in the Scripps Institution of Oceanography, University of California San Diego (2011-2014). My education includes MS.c and Ph.D in Geology (2005-2011) from the Hebrew University and a B.Sc in Electrical Engineering from the Technion Haifa (2003). My main research fields are the past behavior of Earth's magnetic field, rock-magnetim (magnetic properties of rocks and archaeological materials),   and paleo- and archaeo- magnetism (application of magnetic research in geology and archaeology).
