I’m a Berlin-based Computer Scientist, specializing in blockchain, predictive modeling, and algorithm engineering. With my colleagues, I founded Lunar Ventures: a VC run purely by R&D experts, focusing on early seed investments into ambitious algorithm-based ventures.

I am passionate about Computer Science, Economics and Public Policy, and I try to combine these and build the ecosystem that will create the radical technology of the next decade.

I received my Ph.D. in Computer Science from Tel Aviv University.

Lunar Ventures is a seed-stage deep-tech software VC fund, run solely by R&D experts, investing into globally ambitious startups across Europe. At Lunar, I work to revitalize the original purpose of risk capital — to grow cutting-edge algorithmic innovation into defensible tech-based unicorns.
