I head the VISEAON Marine Imaging Lab at the Leon H. Charney School of Marine Sciences. Based on advancements at the Lab, I established a spin-off company, Seaerra-Vision Ltd, which develops real-time underwater image enhancement technologies. I hold a BA in computer science (2001) and the PhD degree in electrical engineering (2010) from the Technion, and completed my postdoc at the University of California, San Diego and at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography. I am a recipient of the Google Anita Borg Scholarship (2009), and the Weizmann Institute of Science National Postdoctoral Award for Advancing Women in Science (2010).
The ocean occupies 70% of the earth, and influences almost every aspect of our life. Nevertheless, it is a complex environment that it is hard to explore and thus still little is known about it. VISEAON Marine Imaging Lab investigates challenges in ocean research, as well as discoveries, and seeks to find viable solutions. The goal is to design and develop novel optical imaging systems and computer vision techniques that will enable us to better explore the ocean and its inhabitants.
