My passion is research in the field of Human-Computer-Interaction and learning technologies. I'm especially interested in creating and designing new interactions using Tangible User Interfaces within the family context.


I received my B.A in Psychology with a minor in Human-Computer-Interaction and Brain Science from IDC Herzliya, Israel. 


Currently, I am a project manager at the miLAB (Media Innovation Lab) in IDC Herzliya, leading research in two domains: VR robotics and Tangible User Interfaces.



Qualitative and Quantitative research

I love jumping out of planes. I have a skydiving licence with more than 100 jumps.

other things I love to do

The ocean is a huge part of my life. I swim, Kite-surf, wave-surf, SUP, and I'm a scuba-dive instructor. I try to be at the beach whenever I can. Especially during winter.
I love to hike and travel around the world, exploring different places and cultures.
