I am an applied statistician.I have been the head of the Statistics laboratory at the Technion since 1986 when I established it with Professor Paul Feigin. I received my Ph.D. degree in statistics at the Johns Hopkins University in 1967. Throughout all my years at the Technion, I worked with researchers in various disciplines and, while publishing joint papers, also wrote methodological papers in statistical journals on the techniques which I developed.My publications include joint papers with researchers in various areas, such as Behavioral Sciences and Medicine, as well as papers in statistical journals. I have a continuous cooperation with medical doctors and consulted for Teva Pharmaceuticals. I am a past president of the Israel Statistical Society and was a member of the advisory committee for statistical methodology nominated by the National Statistical Council.
