I am a Research Scientist in the Facebook AI Research (FAIR) Group. I am currently on leave from the School of Computer Science at Tel-Aviv University, where I am a Full Professor. Previously, I was a post-doctoral associate in Prof. Poggio’s lab at MIT and I graduated from the Hebrew University, Jerusalem, where I worked under the supervision of Prof. Shashua. I am an ERC grantee and I have received the ICCV 2001 Marr Prize honorable mention and the best paper awards at ECCV 2000, the post ICCV 2009 workshop on eHeritage, the pre-CVPR2013 workshop on action recognition and ICANN 2016.
My research focuses on computer vision and deep learning and includes topics such as face identification, document analysis, natural language processing, digital paleography, and video action recognition.
