Dor Amram has a been a postdoctoral researcher at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology since 2015. Born in Israel, he arrived at Boston after completing his B.Sc. and Ph.D. in Materials Science and Engineering, at Technion – Israel Institute of Technology, in Haifa between 2005-2015.
Dor has been playing the piano for the past fifteen years, ten of which were spent studying in his hometown in the greater Tel Aviv area. From a very early age he was drawn to the magnificent sounds of the pipe organ and to its mechanical and acoustical complexities. As opportunities for studying the organ in Israel while completing a degree at Technion were sparse, playing the organ was but a fleeting dream. It was then clear that once presented with the opportunity to study the pipe organ with Christian Lane in Boston, he seized it with great excitement and enthusiasm, and started taking lessons in July of 2017.
When not looking at atoms, Dor enjoys practicing his newly-discovered instrument as well as the piano, cooking and baking, being up to date on the latest gadgets, and experiencing the most intense and thrilling roller coasters the planet has to offer.
