I'm a PhD candidate at the Rachel and Selim Benin School of Computer Science and Engineering at the Faculty of Science, the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.
My research area includes Networks, Algorithmic Game Theory, and Bitcoin, under the supervision of Aviv Zohar, a senior lecturer at the school. I'm also a big fan of Probability Theory.
Currently, my projects with Aviv focus on Bitcoin, analyzing its security, throughput and incentive dynamics,
and suggesting and investigating protocol modifications which enhance its performance.
Specific aspects include:
Bitcoin Mining Pools: A Cooperative Game Theoretic Analysis, Yoad Lewenberg, Yoram Bachrach, Yonatan Sompolinsky, Aviv Zohar, and Jeffrey S. Rosenschein, in AAMAS'15.
