I Am a Ph.D student at the Computer Science Department at Ben Gurion University of the Negev. After completing my B.sc. at BGU, I joined the Interdisciplinary Computational Vision Laboratory (iCVL). My research interests include:
For my undergraduate project, I created an exploratory test-bed for various geometric spanners.
This cross-platform web app may allow students to better understand the subject of geometric spanners. Researchers, on the other hand, may utilize it to test the behaviour spanners in various scenarios. You are invited to visit the web-app here.
As part of Prof. Ohad Ben-Shahar's Introduction to Computational and Biological Vision course Avi Hayoun and I designed a system to intelligently segment scanned texts for optimal display on any screen size.
Here are a few things you may find useful as a student at BGU:
Subversion and Eclipse - A slightly outdated guide to using subversion with eclipse (Hebrew). If you are a new student at the BGU CS department, I strongly recommend that you manage joint projects with subversion (SVN). It may take a while to get used to, but will save you countless hours of frustration later on. If your code synchronization routine includes a "Disk-On-Key" and copious amounts of copy-pasting - you're doing it wrong...
Bootstrapped personal page - Graduate students and faculty members are expected to have a personal webpage, but who has the time to design and maintain one? Don't let your personal page look like this. Instead you are invited to shamelessly copy this beautifully designed page, brought to you in a simple, single-html file package. A demo version and instructions can be found here. Alternatively you may just download the complete package: boot.zip.
While offline, I enjoy cycling, skating and photography.
I am a member of Israels national inline speed-skating team and have had the honor of representing our country in two world championships.Since Beer-Sheva is not ideal for inline skating, you can often find me touring the desert hills around it along with the members of BGU-Bike cycling club.
