I obtained my B.Sc. and M.Sc. in Computer Science from the Technion, Israel, and my M.Phil and Ph.D. in Computer Science and Computational Vision from Yale University, CT, USA. In October 2004 I joined the Computer Science Department at Ben Gurion University, where I am a professor of computer science, the chair of the department, and the founding director of the Interdisciplinary Computational Vision Laboratory. Although focusing on computational vision, my interests span all aspects of theoretical, experimental, and applied vision sciences, and their relationship to cognitive science as a whole. In particular, I am interested in:

  • Theoretical Computational Vision
  • Human Perception and Visual Psychophysics
  • Visual Computational Neuroscience
 
  • Animal Vision
  • Biologically Inspired Robot Vision
  • Applied Computer Vision for Robotics
I am always looking for excellent graduate students to join my group. If any of the vision sciences catches your imagination and research is your passion, I will be happy to chat with you about the opportunities in the lab. Outstanding undergraduate students looking for a senior project are welcome also.
