Welcome.

Today, I work as a Senior Strategy Consultant for IBM (corporate headquarters).

I earned my PhD from the Department of Computer Science, which is part of the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences at New York University. My research advisor was Prof. Amir Pnueli until his untimely, sudden, passing away. After this tragedy, Prof. Lenore Zuck has been my advisor, and Dr. Nir Piterman my research mentor. I was a member of the Analysis of Computer Systems Group, and in my research I concentrated on problems in the field of formal methods and verification, using temporal logic.

My MSc in Computer Science and Applied Mathematics I earned from the Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science at the Weizmann Institute of Science (Israel), advised by Prof. Shimon Ullman. My research was in the field of computer/human vision, using artificial neural networks. Prior to that, I earned a BSc in Computer Engineering from the Department of Electrical Engineering at the Technion - Israel Institute of Technology.

In addition to my academic experience, I co-founded a successful start-up in the field of e-learning, and took part in producing its first case-study: a leading GMAT prep-course. Before going to grad-school, I applied my engineering education working as a Software Engineer for IBM Research, and during my PhD studies I interned at (the really cool!) Bell-Labs, which allowed me to perform more industry-oriented research. I was also very lucky to intern as an Investments Associate at the world's largest hedge-fund Bridgewater Associates, and to learn about the financial markets from the best in the business.
