Short Bio

I have joined the Engineering Faculty at Bar-Ilan University in March 2021.

Previously, I was a faculty member at the School of Electrical & Computer Engineering at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, and before that, I was a post-doc researcher in D1: Algorithms and Complexity at Max-Planck-Institut für Informatik and, a post-doc researcher in the Algorithms and Complexity group at LIAFA (Paris 7).

I graduated with my Ph.D. studies at the School of Electrical Engineering at Tel-Aviv University, in 2014, under the supervision of Prof. Guy Even and Prof. Boaz Patt-Shamir. I have been awarded the national Eshkol 3-year Fellowship for my Ph.D. studies. The title of my Ph.D. dissertation is “Online Algorithms in Communication Networks”. I received my MSc degree from the school of Electrical Engineering at Tel Aviv University, in 2009, under the supervision of Professor Guy Even. I received my BSc in “Computer Science and Electrical Engineering” in 2007 at the school of Electrical Engineering at Tel Aviv University.

I am also a co-author of a text-book on logic design “Digital Logic Design: A Rigorous Approach”, Cambridge Univ. Press, Oct. 2012.
