Israeli professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Neri Oxman who is reportedly dating billionaire hedge fund manager Bill Ackman seemed to spend time with Brad Pitt, the 54-year-old star, but nothing romantic has developed between the two, according to Page Six, which called Oxman a “rockstar MIT professor.”

An insider source told E Online, that the two met through an architecture project, and become friends but “She’s not interested in the whole Hollywood scene at all and she is happy in her current relationship.”

Oxman, 42, who has been dating Ackman for seven months was previously married Argentinan composer Osvaldo Golijov.

Neri Oxman is one of the most intriguing researchers working today. She is known for art and architecture that combine design, biology, computing, and materials engineering. She pioneered the field of “material ecology,” and her work featured in museums across the globe. MoMA curator Paola Antonelli called her “a person ahead of her time, not of her time.”

One of her projects called Wanderers: An Astrobiological Exploration are small habitats worn on the body.

Oxman said, “The future of wearables lies in designing augmented extensions to our own bodies that will blur the boundary between the environment and ourselves.”

She explained, “Living matter within these structures will ultimately transform oxygen for breathing, photons for seeing, biomass for eating, biofuels for moving and calcium for building.”
