I am an associate professor at the School of Computer Science and Engineering, the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. I am also the scientific co-leader of the Fraunhofer Cybersecurity Center at Hebrew University, and a member of the Center for the Study of Rationality and of the Israeli Center of Research Excellence in Algorithms.
Prior to joining the Hebrew University I was a visiting scientist at Google NYC (2011/12), where I worked with the Infrastructure Networking group. I was also a postdoctoral researcher at UC Berkeley and Yale University (jointly), with Prof. Joan Feigenbaum and Prof. Scott Shenker (2008-2010), and at Princeton University, with Prof. Jennifer Rexford (2010/11). I am a recipient of the Allon Fellowship (2011), the Microsoft Research Faculty Fellowship (2013), the Hebrew University President Prize (2014) and Rector Prize (2019), the Wolf Foundation’s Krill Prize (2015), an ERC Starting Grant (2015), 3 IETF/IRTF Applied Networking Research Prizes (2014+2017+2019), and a Google Faculty Research Award (2017).
I hold a B.Sc. in Mathematics and Computer Science, a B.A. in Humanities, and a Ph.D. in Computer Science, all from the Hebrew University (received in 2004, 2004, and 2008, respectively). My Ph.D. dissertation, titled “The Economics of Internet Protocols”, was written under the supervision of Prof. Noam Nisan. During my graduate studies, I spent time at UC Berkeley and Yale University as a visiting student, interned at Microsoft Research Silicon Valley, and worked at BrightSource Industries Israel (BSII).
