Hanna Salman obtained his Ph.D. in physics, with a focus on biological physics, from the Weizmann Institute of Science in Israel. He completed postdoctoral work at the Center for Studies in Physics and Biology at The Rockefeller University in New York, where he studied bacterial thermotaxis. He is currently an Assistant Professor in the Department of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Pittsburgh. His research aims to understand the sources of phenotypic variability in bacterial populations and to characterize their effects on the behavior and fitness of the population.
