I have been graduated at Weizmann Institute of Science (Israel) under supervision of Achi Brandt and Dorit Ron, in 2008. In August 2012 I joined the School of Computing at Clemson University. Before that I was at Argonne National Laboratory. My undegraduate school was Ben-Gurion University of the Negev.

I am actively looking for highly motivated students to work with (both undergraduate and graduate). You are always welcome to stop by my office to chat.
