B.Sc., MA, and Ph.D., all in Aerospace Engineering, Technion (1992, 1998, and 2001, respectively). MBA, Tel-Aviv University (1997). Research/System Engineer, Air-to-Air Directorate, RAFAEL, 2000-2004. National Research Council Research Associate at the US Air Force Research Labs, Wright-Patterson AFB, 2004-2006. At the Technion since 2006.
Director and founder of the Cooperative Autonomous SYstems (CASY) Lab.

My research interests are in the area of guidance of vehicles, in particular missiles and unmanned aircraft, operating individually or as a team. Specific interests are:

  • 1-on-1 guidance (intercept angle guidance, one & two-sided pursuit-evasion, guidance amidst obstacles)
  • Cooperative guidance (3-body pursuit-evasion, n-on-1 guidance)
  • Guidance integrated with task assignment, autopilot, and estimation

Head of the Cooperative Autonomous SYstems (CASY) laboratory.
