B.Med.Sc, MD

Clinical Research Fellow, Maternal-Fetal Medicine

I am an academic fetal medicine specialist sharing my time between clinical work at the Fetal Medicine Unit, Women's Centre, Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and research at the Nuffield Department of Women's and Reproductive Health at the University of Oxford. 

My main research project is Perception Ultrasound by Learning Sonographer Experience (PULSE) project. In PULSE, we utilize artificial intelligence (AI) to teach a machine how sonographers scan. Ultimately, we aim to improve pregnancy imaging analysis for clinical purposes and develop considerably more powerful assistive interpretation methods of obstetric scanning. My supervisors are Prof. Alison Noble of the Institute of Biomedical Engineering (IBME) and Prof. Aris Papageorghiou of the Nuffield Department of Women's and Reproductive Health. Owing to my intensive computer science background as well as fetal medicine expertise, in the PULSE project, I hold the position of bridging between engineers and physicians.

My additional clinical and research interests are neurosonography, quality improvement, and cutting-edge ultrasound technologies.

Before moving to Oxford, I completed my training in Obstetrics and Gynecology at the Shaare Zedek Medical Centre, Jerusalem, Israel. I hold an M.D. as well as B.Med.Sc from the Hebrew University, Jerusalem, Israel. Prior to studying medicine, I worked for five years in IT as a developer of software to hardware interface and infrastructure.
