About me


- At the end of 2023 I have started a position of Business Development Manger at ICL-IP. I am currently focused on the flame retardant (FR) business and leading Project FRontier for innovation and business growth in the FR business. 

- During 2023 I was the CTO of SlideTro LTD, a Deep Tech startup, using 2D layered materials to re-invent fast and energy efficient memory devices as SRAM replacement. I have built a product strategy and assisted in securing seed funds for continued activities before moving on.

- Up to 2022, and for 6 years, I was the Microelectronics Group Founder and Leader at Landa Labs, a privately owned research and incubation hub for the Landa Group. I lead several teams including Assembly & Packaging, Reliability & Failure Analysis, and Production Processes Development, all for developing high energy, high resolution laser matrices. 

- My earlier professional history includes managing the Electrochemistry and Physical Chemistry Lab at ICL-IP R&D, where we specialized in Bromine related chemistry, researching and developing  various products and applications - anything from high end chemicals for energy storage to metal extraction. I have also worked as a R&D Materials Chemist at StoreDot, a startup company developing fast charging batteries. 


- In 2021, I  have completed my Executive MBA degree at Tel Aviv University (TAU).
