Having already published three academic papers, Yochai is
focused on developing super-resolution microscopes and hopes to pursue a career
in Israel’s high-tech industry. But his interests don’t stop with
electro-optics engineering. He has served as a medic in the Israel Defense
Forces, and as deputy commander of a small, mobile field hospital while on
reservist duty. In his free time, Yochai goes rock climbing — on outdoor
natural rock faces when weather permits, or on indoor climbing walls.
Chanan’s academic career is still young, but he has already
started to make his mark. Recognized in high school for his work in physics, he
is now studying robotics in the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering. Serving in
the Israeli Air Force Flight Academy, Chanan graduated cum laude in the platoon commander course. He served additional
time in the elite Special Forces unit, and was awarded the Chief of Staff
Citation for his role as a unit team leader during Operation Protective Edge. When
not studying, Chanan volunteers with disabled children and is a member of the
Technion’s Orienteering sport team.
This will surely be an event you won’t want to miss.
