Short Biography

I was born in Israel in December 1981, and grew up in Tel-Aviv. I recieved B.A. in Math, B.Sc. in EE in 2007 and Ph.D. in Electrical and Computer Engineering in 2013, all from Ben-Gurion University (BGU). I was fortunate to be advised during my Ph.d. by Prof. Moshe Schwartz from BGU and Prof. Jehoshua Bruck from California Institute of Techonology. During my Post-graduate studies I spent a wonderful two years at University of Maryland working with Prof. Alexander Barg.

My research interests are Coding Theory, Combinatorics, Information Networks, and Information Theory in Biology.

I recieved the Krill Prize for Excellence in research in 2018, the 2015 IEEE Information Theory Society Paper Award , and the 2013 IEEE Communication Society Data Storage Technical Committee Best Paper Award.
