He received his B.Sc. degree in Information Systems (1999) at the Technion, staying away from Biology as much as he can. As often happens, a twist of fate led him to fall in love with Biology in his senior year and has pursued his interest in it ever since. He received an MSc in Bioinformatics (2002) from the Weizmann Institute of Science and a PhD in Biology (2007) from Harvard University. This was followed by postdoctoral studies in Systems Immunology at Stanford University, where he was a postdoc and Research Associate (2007-2011), with Prof. Mark Davis and Prof. Atul Butte.
