Joint Seminar Series with University of Haifa

Professor Todd Kaplan (University of Haifa) and Professor John Wooders (NYUAD) have established a joint monthly virtual seminar to promote the exchange of scientific ideas. This joint cooperation is particularly apt since the President of Haifa University, Ron Robin, played a key role in the establishment of NYU Abu Dhabi while Senior Vice Provost at NYU.
