I am currently a PhD student at Technion – Israel Institute of Technology at the department of mechanical engineering in the laboratory for CAD and Lifecycle engineering. I am doing my research under the advisory of Prof. Anath Fischer. My research interests focus on combining CAD and computer vision with 3D and geometrical information. I received both my B.Sc (Cum Laude 2008) and M.Sc (Summa Cum Laude 2015) in mechanical engineering from the Technion.

I was born on December 16th, 1985 in the city of Hadera, Israel. Everyone I know calls me Itzik (common Israeli nickname for Yizhak). I am married to the talented Anna and I am father to an adorable, Shaked and Keshet (boy and girl). We currently live at the Technion in Haifa, Israel.
In my free time, I enjoy playing semi-professional volleyball (Haifa team in Israel’s second league). I love teaching and every activity that combines it with technology (mentoring in FIRST Robotics Competition probably influenced me more than it did the kids). I like to think of myself as a “Maker” and I enjoy DIY projects that include mechanics, electronics, and programming (Check out my instructables profile).
