I am an AI researcher and a Ph.D. candidate at the University of Johannesburg under the supervision of Prof. Tshilidzi Marwala (the vice-chancellor and principal of the University of Johannesburg). My research focuses on automated action planning and sequential decision making In Artificial Intelligence and Economic systems with general utility functions. My current and future research interests are in the areas of artificial intelligence, machine learning, and economics, but not limited.

I graduated from the Technion - Israel Institute of Technology with an M.Sc. in Information Management Engineering, a B.Sc. in Industrial Engineering and Management, and a B.A. in Economics and Management. My M.Sc. research thesis focused on artificial intelligence automated planning algorithms, computational and modeling problems with a focus on Oversubscription planning problems with negative and general utility functions.

During my studies in the Technion I was a teaching assistant (TA) and a supervisor in the graduate-level course of Entrepreneurship and Intellectual Property at the Faculty of Industrial Engineering and Management, and principal teaching assistant in the undergraduate course of Marketing Principles. Previously, I was an information systems engineer at Elbit Systems for five years, leading and implementing various, end to end projects, in the ERP and MES systems.
