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 improved patient-provider communication and for better Software Engineering. 

Current Roles

  • Faculty member at the Department of Software and Information Systems Engineering, in Ben Gurion University

  • Principal Scientist in Palo Alto Research Center (PARC)

  • Associate Editor for 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:

  • Multi-agent planning (funded by ISF)

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