ATS – Southern California Exclusive Interactive Virtual Event

Featuring Arielle Fischer ’11, Ph.D. ’16, Assistant Professor in the Faculty of Biomedical Engineering and Zuckerman Faculty Scholar

Join us for an interactive virtual event exclusively for the ATS – Southern California community. Asst. Prof. Fischer will share her personal and academic journey since she last visited ATS supporters as a doctoral student. As a newly minted Technion faculty member, she’ll talk about her work to create biomedical applications, including high-tech sensors and smart wearable devices for artificial joints and neuromuscular disorders.

Arielle Fischer is the embodiment of excellence. As a young soldier in the Israeli Air Force, she served with distinction, winning several awards, including the Second Lebanon War Medal. She then excelled in her academic pursuits. Now, after earning all three degrees at the Technion and conducting postdoctoral research at Stanford University, she is fulfilling a lifelong ambition — returning to the Technion with a lab of her own.

This event will be moderated by Janey Sweet, President, ATS – Southern California.


Assistant Professor Arielle Fischer ’11, Ph.D. ’16 heads the Applied Biomechanics and Wearable Technology Lab in the Technion Faculty of Biomedical Engineering. Her work focuses on biomedical applications such as high-tech sensors and smart wearable devices for artificial joints, sports injuries, osteoarthritis, and neuromuscular disorders.

Born in the U.S., she immigrated to Israel with her family when she was 10 years old. Prof. Fischer started her studies at MIT and then transferred to the Technion, earning her bachelor’s degree in biomedical engineering and her master’s and doctorate in mechanical engineering. She was a postdoctoral fellow at Stanford University before joining the Technion in July 2020 as a Zuckerman Faculty Scholar. The Mortimer B. Zuckerman STEM Leadership program supports future generations of leaders in science and technology in the U.S. and Israel.
