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)

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)

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)
