Research Interests

Most of my research activities revolve around autonomous mobile robots ? a leading research area, with various practical implementations. I have been publishing papers in leading professional journals such as , Journal of Robotics Research, IIE Transaction and IEEE. I also participate in national and international conferences such as IEEE conference on Robotics and Automation (ICRA), International Federation of Automatic control (IFAC) and International Conference of Systems Engineering (INCOSE). I won several research grants both in Israel and Australia. In Israel I worked with Prof. Elon Rimon from the faculty of Mechanical Engineering on motion planning of spider-like mobile robots with quasistatic force constraints. This work was sponsored by The Israel Science Foundation by the Israel Academy of Science and Humanities. ?. I have recently completed a project with Prof. Zvi Shiller on motion and navigation of mobile robots in space research ? a project sponsored by The Israeli Center for Space Research. Recently I have won a research grant from the Australian Prime Minister Office in the area of Counter Terrorism. Since 2000 I have been serving as the head of the department of Industrial Engineering & Management. In this position I have been working on the development of new academic programs both in undergraduate and graduate programs, negotiating with various academic and professional organizations, managing the academic and administrative activities of the department, as well as participating in the various activities of the university center. I am a member of IEEE professional society, serve on several committees, and was the head of the Industrial Engineering section of the Jerusalem chapter in the Israeli Association of Engineers.
