Kovi is a final year physics undergraduate at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. He is a research assistant, in the Racah Institute of Physics, on an observational astrophysics team that uses radio telescopes to study supernovae and other interesting astronomical transients.
Having noticed the increasing trend of online misinformation and science denial, Kovi developed a passion for science communication and outreach. Since creating Fun Fact Science, a social media science communication platform, Kovi has worked with an international community of science communicators and educators on a number outreach campaigns; centered around topics like women in STEM and astronomy.
Outside of his online efforts, Kovi works for the Ramon Foundation mentoring middle school students in a project-based learning program which culminates in the annual launch of an experiment to the International Space Station.
Through this conference, Kovi hopes to provide inspiration and tools to people from different sectors and diverse communities across the country; as well as creating a launchpad for international initiatives and collaborations.
