The ocean occupies 70% of the earth, and influences almost every aspect in our life. Nevertheless, it is a complex environment that it is hard to explore and thus still little is known about it.

I am intrigued by both the challenges in ocean research as well as the discoveries that lay behind solving these challenges.

The lab's goal is to develop novel optical imaging systems and computer vision methods to explore the ocean and its inhabitants.

Research interests: Imaging, Underwater Sensing, Oceanic Engineering, Computer Vision, Computational Photography.

Brief bio:

I am heading the Marine Imaging Lab, in the Department for Marine Technologies, Charney School of Marine Sciences, University of Haifa.

Previously: I was a post-doc, working with David Kriegman in the Computer Vision group, Computer Science and Engineering department in the University of California, San Diego
and with Jules Jaffe in the Jaffe laboratory for Underwater Imaging in the Scripps Institution of Oceanography.

My Ph.D.: "Geometry and Photometry of Imaging Through a Medium", Electrical Engineering, Technion, under the supervision of Yoav Schechner, in the Hybrid Imaging lab.
