I am currently an associate professor in the physics department in Bar Ilan University.
My research focuses on theoretical high energy astrophysics. My present interests include dynamics and radiation processes in Gamma-ray bursts, X-ray emitting binaries, high energy cosmic rays and tidal disruption events. I work on broad band emission models, relativistic gas dynamics and nuclear processes. Further details can be found in the links above.
Between 2012-1018 I was a lecturer, then a full professor in the physics department in UCC.
Between 2010 – 2012 I was a research associate at the Institute of Theory and Computation which resides in the Harvard Center for Astrophysics (CfA).
Between 2007-2010 I was a Riccardo Giacconi fellow at the Space Telescope Science Institute (STScI).
Earlier, I was a postdoctoral fellow at the Astronomical Institute “Anton Pannekoek”, in the University of Amsterdam (UvA).
Between 1999 -2004 I was a Ph.D. student at the Weizmann Institute of Science .
