I am a postdoctoral associate at Prof. Mary C. Boyce group at M.I.T. I visited Harvard University in 2011 and Caltech in 2009 and got my Ph.D. from BGU. My M.Sc. and B.Sc. are from  SPBSPU.

I love mechanics and especially its part of soft active materials.  There large deformations and heterogeneity meet with multiphysics phenomena, there micro scales give rise to peculiar properties on the macro level. It is just fascinating!
