About Me

I am a postdoctoral researcher at Weizmann Institute of Science, working with Professor Yonina C. Eldar. I will be joining the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering in Ben-Gurion University as an associate professor starting October 2020.


I was a postdoctoral researcher in the Technion between September 2017 and February 2019. I received my Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from Ben-Gurion University in 2017, under the supervision of Professor Ron Dabora. Prior to that I received my B.Sc. degree and my M.Sc. degree in 2011 and 2013, respectively, from Ben-Gurion University, all in Electrical Engineering.

From 2009 to 2013 I worked as an engineer at Yitran Communications.

My detailed CV can be found here.
