START 2012 – Board Members

Yair Saperstein

Infused with 5 Towns passion, Yair has a zeal for a random eclectic chulent of activities. He plays classical music on piano, enjoys rhetoric as an art, and is trying to pick up computer programming in his spare time — that is, when he isn’t biking. His research focus spans from hydroxy-radical cleaved DNA footprints to computational basis-set limit extrapolations.

Ari Cuperfain
The only board member from Canada, Ari is currently in his third year at Yeshiva University majoring in Chemistry and minoring in Biology. He started as a member of the ACS Chemistry Club back in Spring 2010. He is an avid 49ers fan and enjoys watching satirical Youtube clips when he isn’t busy studying. He also likes applying his scientific knowledge to developing programs for START!.

Menachem Spira

Born and raised in the Deep South in Atlanta, Menachem is presently completing his fourth year at Yeshiva College majoring in Biology with a minor in Chemistry. He particularly enjoys laboratory research with an interest in the biochemistry of cellular immune responses. Always looking for a good book, Menachem is currently reading Michael Chabon’s Summerland (so far, quite good, but will need suggestions soon). Project START Science allows Menachem to share his enthusiasm for the sciences to children, especially when it comes to liquid nitrogen ice cream.

Ike Levine

Ike Levine went to HANC High School before studying for a year at yeshivat hakotel. He is currently in the Shottenstein Honors Program while majoring in Chemistry while being pre-med. He shows off his athleticism on the Tennis team and president of the YU bridgers, a social action club that combines athletics and community service. He is an Organic Chemistry Teachers assistant and member of the chemistry club.

Eli Grunblatt

Eli is currently a sophomore who hails all the way from Brooklyn, New York. A dual major in Chemistry and Biology, he can often be found in the lab researching the chemical pathways of breast carcinoma cell metastasis. When Eli’s not studying, working, or organizing events for the Chem Club, he has been known to pursue interests such as goaltending and the linguistics of the Indo European languages.

Tsipora Huisman

Tsipora comes all the way from far away Amsterdam. She enjoys to read, cook, and relax. Currently she works in a research lab at Einstein, is pre-med, and is very happy with her new found free time as a Stern alumn. She could not get enough of START!, combining her love for science and teaching kids. What could be better?
