Shlomi Reuveni studied Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, and Biology at the Adi Lautman Interdisciplinary Program for Outstanding Students, Tel Aviv University. He holds a B.Sc. in Mathematics (Summa Cum Laude), an M.Sc. in Physical Chemistry (Summa Cum Laude), a Ph.D. from the School of Chemistry, and a Ph.D. from the School of Mathematical Sciences, all from Tel Aviv University. Shlomi returned to Tel Aviv after a postdoctoral training period at the Department of Systems Biology, Harvard Medical School.
With a Ph.D. in Physics from the Raman Research Institute and a postdoc from the Technion, Arnab studies first passage under restart. Arnab has recently developed a general theoretical framework for the analysis of this wide and diverse class of problems and now tries to further extend and apply this framework to better understand stochastic search processes & the thermodynamics of restart. In addition, Arnab also explores the application of first passage under restart to enzymatic catalysis at the single-molecule level.
Dr. SARAH KOSTINSKI
Zuckerman Postdoctoral Fellow
Sarah completed undergraduate studies in physics and music at the University of Michigan and a PhD in physics at Harvard University. She previously did work in soft condensed matter, optics, and discrete geometry. Currently, she works on problems in biological and statistical physics.
Yuval holds a B.Sc. and M.Sc. in chemistry from Tel-Aviv University. In his master's thesis, prepared under the supervision of Prof. Yoram Cohen, he studied Diffusion-Magnetic Resonance techniques and applied them to the study of multicompartmental biological tissues. In his Ph.D., Yuval studies the kinetics of gated reactions.
With a B.Sc. (Magna cum Laude) in Applied Mathematics (Major) & Chemistry (Minor); Ofek studies stochastic aspects of DNA damage & repair. He is also interested in exactly solvable models in Statistical Physics and has recently developed a method to compute spatial correlations in the Asymmetric Simple Inclusion Process—a lattice-gas model for unidirectional transport with aggregation.
