Research Interests

I enjoy almost anything that has to do with Artificial Intelligence, but mostly work on heuristic search, multi-agent planning, automated diagnosis, learning model for planning, and using AI for better Software Engineering. 

Current Roles


  • The paper "An Impact-Driven Approach to Predict User Stories Instability" was accepted to the journal first track of Requirement Engineering (RE) 2023. Joint work with Arnon Sturm and Maxim Bragilovski.

  • The paper on "Synthesizing Priority Planning Formulae for Multi-Agent Pathfinding" was accepted to Artificial Intelligence and Interactive Digital Entertainment (AIIDE) 2023. Joint work with Shway Wang, Vadim Bulitko, Taoan Huang, and Sven Koenig. 

  • Faculty member at the Dept. of Software and Information Systems Engineering, in Ben Gurion University (BGU)

  • Vice Head of the Software Engineering program in BGU

  • Associate Editor and Chair of the Award-Winning Papers track in the Journal of Artificial Intelligence Research (JAIR). 

Open positions

I am currently looking for motivated Ph.D. students and Post-doctoral researchers to work with me on funded projects in the following topics:

  • Safe model-free planning (funded by NSF-BSF)

  • Applicable, lifelong, Multi-Agent Pathfinding

  • Automated generation of software requirements

  • Learning action models for planning
