I am an Israeli born, multidisciplinary artist and researcher who is bridging art and technology to create interactive work that invites the participants to explore the dynamic relationship between nature, culture and environments. My current research focuses on the relationship between humans and nonhuman animals that share the urban habitat in the age of the Anthropocene.

My work has been exhibited at Print Screen Festival (Israel), New York Hall of Science, NYC Media Lab at Columbia University, New York University, NYCxDesign Festival, and Concordia (the Netherlands). In addition, it has been featured in publications such as the nationwide Israeli radio network Galei Tzahal and the Jerusalem Post Journal.

I have been awarded grants and fellowships from the Culture & Animals Foundation, New York Foundation for the Arts Immigrant Artist Mentoring Program, Microsoft Design Expo Challenge, Experiments in Storytelling research group by NYU and Google, Tisch Graduate Students Organization and the Weizmann Institute of Science for outstanding young researchers.

I was invited to give talks and lead workshops on various subjects such as bio art, motion capture, 3D printing and scanning, in front of The School of The New York Times, Print Screen Festival (Israel), and conference (Berlin).

I recently received my Master’s degree from the Interactive Telecommunications Program at NYU Tisch School of the Arts. I studied at Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design while earning my B.S. (Summa Cum Laude) in cognitive science and biology in the Special Honors Program from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. My studies focused on the research of humans' visual memory and bats' navigation.
