IBM Research - Israel Haifa, Israel


I am a senior researcher in the Language and Conversation Group at IBM Research. My research centers on large language models, with a specific focus on controlled generation, as well as the quality and safety of generated content.

I earned my bachelor's degree in computer engineering from the Technion and my master's degree in computer engineering at Tel-Aviv University, where I was guided by Prof. Dana Ron and Dr. Raid Saabni. My thesis concentrated on online handwriting recognition in the Arabic language.

I completed my Ph.D. in computational neuroscience in the Sagol Department of Neurobiology at Haifa University. During this period, under the guidance of Dr. Genela Morris, I investigated cognitive models of attention and motivation, with a particular focus on state representation mechanisms in the brain.
