Fellows 2014 - 2015

 

Liran Ben-Moshe

Liran Ben-Moshe

Liran Ben Moshe is studying for his PhD in Marine Geosciences at the University
of Haifa, exploring how the morphology of continental margins
responds to sea level changes. His research focuses on the
desiccation of the eastern Levantine basin and margin during the
Messinian Salinity Crisis, and enables him to enter unknown areas
of knowledge and map unexplored geological features. Liran
strives to combine academic research with actual scientific needs
of the industry and along with young researchers in the field, to put
the Israeli seismic geomorphology research group on the map as a
world leader in this field.  (read more)

Yuval Peled

Yuval Peled

Yuval Peled is a PhD student in Computer Science at the Hebrew University. He
is investigating methods of studying properties of large graphs
and hypergraphs by observing the structure of smaller, local
subgraphs, using tools from topology and probability theory. With
the enhancement of the informational revolution, numerous fields
in the scientific research, as well as everyday interfaces, are based
on very large graphs and multiwise interactions. Yuval strives to
make significant breakthroughs in these areas and believes that
they can be obtained by scientific collaborations.  (read more)

Idan Frumkin

Idan Frumkin

Idan Frumkin is a PhD student in molecular genetics at the Weizmann Institute of
Science. His studies center on the evolution of cellular machineries,
emphasizing the systems biology perspective and combining both
experimental and computational methodologies. Idan’s research
strives to reveal the mechanism through which species and cells
adapt to the ever changing environment of planet earth. As both
evolutionist and cell biologist and a great believer in team work,
Idan wishes to combine the two fields with the goal of making
real progress in our understanding of the evolution of cellular
pathways, machineries and organelles.  (read more)

Dana Sury Barot

Dana Sury Barot

Dana Sury Barot is a PhD student in the Faculty of Education at the University of
Haifa. She is fascinated by the “magical world” of numbers and
by the human ability evolutionally embedded in us to process
and understand quantities. Her research focuses on numerical
cognition and dyscalculia, a field which has received little attention.
Dana believes that understanding the role of ordinal processing
in dyscalculia may lead to better adapted and more efficient
diagnosis and treatment methods for mathematics learning. She
hopes to use her research to help develop the knowledge and skills
of future researchers, teachers and therapists.  (read more)

light of the social-political reality of the ongoing conflict with the
Palestinians and the Arab states. Soli wishes to lead educational
and social initiatives which will promote peace education and a
culture of peace, both inside and outside of academia. Living near
the Jordanian border, she dreams to establish a joint educational
institution in which Israelis and Jordanians will study together. Soli
believes wholeheartedly that the key to achieving a long lasting
peace lays in education.  (read more)

Dana Margalith

Dana Margalith

Dana Margalith completed her PhD in History & Theory of Architecture at McGill
University in Canada. She is currently pursuing her postdoctoral
research in the Technion, aiming to investigate the intricate
and fascinating ties between locality, environmental enquiries,
drawings, place making and architecture promoting poetic
dwelling. Dana hopes to assess which sort of drawings help
architects to embody the surrounding environment, examining
why and how drawings can assist in creating local Israeli/
Mediterranean poetic architecture. She believes that architecture
has an important role in shaping the local public cultural realm,  (read more)
