Natalia Silberstein


I am a Research Scientist at Yahoo Research, in the Native Ad Science group. I am involved in the design and improvements of  algorithms that control personalized native ad selection.
Before joining that group, I was with the Mail Mining group, primarily analyzing and modeling mail data to devise novel mail features.

Background

I completed my PhD on "Coding Theory and Projective Spaces" at the Technion, Computer Science Department, under the supervision of Prof. Tuvi Etzion in 2011. I then joined Prof. Sriram Vishwanath's Wireless Networking and Communications Group at the Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering, University of Texas, Austin, as a Postdoctoral Fellow, focusing on coding for distributed storage systems.


Research areas

Advertising science, machine learning, coding for distributed storage systems, random network coding, algebraic error-correcting codes, applications of combinatorial designs and graphs to coding theory.
