I am currently a post-doctoral associate with Aviv Regev's group at the Broad institute.
You are welcome to contact me at: msinger <at> broadinstitute.org
I got my PhD in Computer Science from UC
Berkeley, where I was advised by Lior
coming to Berkeley I received a BSc in Computer Science and Biology
(double major) through the Bioinformatics program at Tel-Aviv
During that period I was fortunate to work with Eran Segal's research group at the Weizmann Institute and with Shaul Yalovsky's research group at Tel-Aviv University.
