About me

Hi! đź‘‹

I am a Postdoctoral Research Associate in the Computer  Science Department at Cornell, working with Prof. Lorenzo Alvisi. Prior, I completed my PhD in the Computer  Science Department at the Technion, where I was advised by  Prof. Idit Keidar.

My research interests include distributed systems and algorithms. Specifically, I focus on Byzantine behavior in distributed services and how to use cryptographic tools to make such services more resilient and efficient. 

I recently won the Schmidt Postdoctoral Award for Women, the VATAT Fellowship for outstanding postdoctoral women, and Andrew and Erna Finci Viterbi Foundation Fellowship. During my PhD I won an Adams Fellowship.
