About Me

For details on a summer research position for graduate students, see here.

I am an Assistant Professor at the City University of New York, with appointments in the mathematics departments at Baruch College and at the Graduate Center.  In 2018-2020 I was a postdoctoral researcher at the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton and at DIMACS. In 2017-2018 I was a postdoctoral researcher at Harvard University.

I completed my Ph.D. studies at the School of Mathematics at Tel Aviv University, advised by Asaf Shapira, and my M.Sc. studies at the School of Computer Science advised by Oded Regev.

I have a broad interest in: extremal & additive combinatorics, graph/hypergraph theory, algebraic geometry, number theory, as well as in probabilistic & algebraic methods in combinatorics and their applications to theoretical computer science.

I also mentor in the NYC Discrete Math REU (Research Experience for Undergraduates).

For students interested in topics related to tensor ranks, below are brief introductory materials:
