Adi Maron-Katz

 I am a PhD student at the School of Computer Science at Tel Aviv University.
My advisors are Prof. Ron Shamir and Prof. Talma Hendler from the Sackler faculty of medicine.

I am interested in bringing some of the methods that have been used for high throughput genomic data analysis to use in the field of neuroscience (in particular to the analysis of fMRI data).

I would like to use such methods in order to try and understand the dynamics that underlies some of the neural processes.  

I also work on EXPANDER, which is a java based tool for the analysis of gene expression microarray data.
