About me I am currently an Instructor for Applied Math in MIT. Before that, I was Gibbs Assistant Professor at Yale University and a visitor researcher at MIT.
Even earlier, I was a postdoc in ETH, Zurich and before moving to the US I was a postdoc of Wojtek Samotij in Tel Aviv University for one full month! My lovely wife Shiran is a postdoc at MIT as well (Biomedical Engineering -- Langer's lab, and will soon be moving to Harvard medical school to Artzi's lab),
so any offer for two positions in the same city/area will be welcomed :-)
I formally received my PhD from Tel Aviv University in January '14, where I studied under the supervision of the best advisor ever: Professor Michael Krivelevich. My research areas are mainly Probabilistic and Extremal Combinatorics, but I would be happy to work on any topic which I feel that I can contribute.
As a Master studet in Tel Aviv University, I conducted research in Set Theory under the supervision of Professor Moti Gitik.
Fields of interest
- Probabilistic methods in combinatorics
- Graph theory
