I have graduated summa cum laude from the Department of Geography and the Human Environment, Tel Aviv University in 2016. My PhD study focuses on the large-scale agent-based urban traffic simulations. I develop my models within the MATSim environment, which is highly customizable, modular and a flexible simulation environment. I apply, calibrate and validate MATSim model for the Tel-Aviv Metropolitan, accounting for all currently available and future transportation modes.
