Reut Noham is a PhD student in the Department of Industrial Engineering, Faculty of Engineering at Tel-Aviv University. She holds a BSc. and MSc. in Industrial Engineering, both from Tel-Aviv University. Reut’s research is in the field of Humanitarian logistics, Supply chain management and Network design in healthcare systems. Her research, under the supervision of Prof. Michal Tzur, is based on data driven applications alongside with the theoretical analysis and mathematical modelling. Her work was funded by the Ministry of Science, Technology and Space in Israel. Following the end of her studies, she is about to begin a postdoctoral position at Northwestern University, under the guidance of Prof. Karen Smilowitz.

   

Lior Medina received both B.Sc. (2010) and M.Sc. (2012) Magna Cum Laude in mechanical engineering from Tel-Aviv University. His M.Sc. thesis was on the subject "Symmetry breaking in electrostatically loaded curved bistable micro beams" under the supervision of Prof. Slava Krylov & Dr. Rivka Gilat. In December 2012, he began his Ph.D. studies in mechanical engineering at the School of Mechanical Engineering, Faculty of Engineering in Tel Aviv University, under the combined supervision of Prof. Slava Krylov & Prof. Rivka Gilat. His Ph.D research dealt with micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS), and was devoted to the investigation of stability properties of electrostatically operated bistable micro devices. The research is supported by Israel Ministry of Science, Technology & Space, and the Israel Science Foundation (ISF, grant no. 1272/16). Following the end of his studies, he is to begin a postdoctoral position at Northwestern University, under the guidance of Prof. Horacio Espinoza.
