Dr. Tali Ilovitsh

Dep. of Bio-Medical Engineering
מחלקה להנדסה ביו-רפואית סגל אקדמי בכיר


I received my B.Sc. (2010), M.Sc. in a direct track (2011), and Ph.D. (2016) degrees in electrical engineering from Bar Ilan University, Israel. My Ph.D. research in the field of optical imaging was focused on the development of super-resolution techniques for microscopy. Between 2016-2019 I was a postdoctoral researcher at Prof. Katherine Ferrara lab, initially at University of California Davis, and then at Stanford University School of Medicine, where I was working in the fields of ultrasound therapy and imaging. Since 2019 I am a Senior Lecturer at the Department of Biomedical Engineering at Tel Aviv University. My ultimate goal is to develop medical ultrasound technologies that provide non-invasive, cost effective, real-time and safe monitoring, diagnostics, and therapy for clinically relevant problems.
