I am currently performing my post-doctoral research in prof. Patricia Babbitt's lab. I received my PhD degree from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem (prof. Hanah Margalit's lab).

My current research invloves enzyme engineering and uncovering new metabolic pathways in which enzymes participate.
I am developing methods for elucidating new metabolic pathways by combining genomic context information and mechanistic details of enzymes, as well as methods for guiding enzyme engineering using the natural seqeunce variability of enzyme superfamilies. These methods rely on sequence similarity networks as an infrastrucure. Method development is followed by experimental verification in collaborating labs.
