Teaching


I'm teaching (with Prof. Anat Rafaeli) a course entitled: "Big Data in Behavioral Science Research"

The course teaches students, especially those without Data Science background, how to answer behavioral sciences questions using internet data.

The course teaches how to find data for the research question, collect it, label it using crowdsourcing, and build statistical models to analyze it.


If you're interested in the course, I'm happy to share our materials.



I previously taught the following courses at the Technion:

  • Vision and Hearing Systems
  • Introduction to Electrical Engineering
  • Control of Physiological Systems (Teaching assistant)

I also lectured at the Machine Learning Summer School (MLSS) 2003, where I gave an introduction to pattern classification.


Studies

My first degree is a B.Sc. in Electrical Engineering from Tel-Aviv University. I then moved to the Technion, where I did an M.Sc. in Electrical Engineering. I studied under the supervision of Prof. G.F. Inbar. My thesis subject was "Movement-related potentials in the human spinal cord preceding toe movement". The thesis is available upon request.

I studied for a Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering under the supervision of Prof. G.F. Inbar. My thesis subject was "Detection of transient phenomena in movement related potentials". My work dealt with detection, processing and classification of signals in a very low signal-to-noise environment. The thesis is available upon request.

I also participated in the second EMBS Summer school on BioComplexity, BioScaling, Biosignal Interpretation at Dartmouth College.
