Hi, welcome to my webpage! I am a postdoc in the Mathematics Department at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. My area of expertise is the cross-disciplinary field known as "network science", which aims at analyzing complex systems, such as human cells in the body and individuals in our society, by describing which components interact with one another. I work with Peter J. Mucha to develop mathematical and computational tools and apply them to data analysis problems arising in a variety of contexts.
I did my undergrad in Mathematics and Computer Science at the Israel Institute of Technology (Technion) and then worked in an Israeli startup called Diligent (which is now part of IBM) offering data "de-duplication" technology (basically, a smart way to identity repeated blocks of data in a huge storage system). Looking for a new challenge, I went back to university to do a PhD in Computer Science. I completed my PhD at the University of St Andrews under the supervision of Simon Dobson. Simon and I discovered our passion for networks together, and it is now a main part of the research of both of us.
