Research Projects

Technion-Israel Institute of Technology, Haifa, Israel
Master project in the Auditory and Visual System Lab of Prof. Yoram Gutfreund
I did electrophysiological experiments in the optic tectum of barn owls.
I also programmed and designed experimental setups and algorithms
for studying auditory, visual motion and multisensory integration.
The thesis was co-supervised by Prof. Hermann Wagner

Albert Einstein College of Medicine, New York, USA
I was a Visiting Student at the lab of Prof. Jose Luis Pena
were used a large 3D speaker array to produce free-field auditory motion
in order to complement my project in Israel.

Hospital Nacional de Parapléjicos,Toledo, Spain
I did my Bachelor's thesis under the supervision of Prof. Joerg Mey.
I investigated the expression patterns of PPARα after spinal cord injury.

B-Tec Project in Tropical Habitat Conservation, Madagascar
I developed and conducted a conservation project monitoring local bird
populations in the northern rain forests of Madagascar.
Have a look at the outcome of the "Mother" project: Paper & Pictures
