About

I am a faculty member in the School of Computer Science and Engineering at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. I am interested in various aspects of foundations of computer science with an emphasis on cryptography. Previously, I was a postdoctoral researcher at Cornell Tech, hosted by Prof. Rafael Pass and Prof. Elaine Shi. Priori to that, I completed my Ph.D. at the Weizmann Institute of Science, where I was fortunate to have Prof. Moni Naor as my advisor. I received my M.Sc. from the Weizmann Institute under the guidance of Prof. Ran Raz.
