I'm a graduate student at the Weizmann Institute of Science, soon moving on to a post-doc at MIT.
I'm mostly interested in studying how cellular processes and machineries change and become optimized in the course of evolution. This field, termed Evolutionary Cell Biology, melds two complementary aims: to apply evolutionary perspectives to the study of the structure, function, and molecular mechanisms of cellular processes; and to study biological diversity that is present in nature to provide insights into the mechanisms of evolution.
Specifically, during my PhD studies I applied this thinking on both the translation apparatus and splicing machine to reveal new molecular mechanisms by which cells optimize their gene-expression regulation.
