Profile picture


I am a Senior Lecturer (Assistant Professor) at the School of Computer Science at Reichman University. I completed my PhD in electrical engineering from Stanford University in 2017 under the supervision of Andrea Goldsmith. Between 2017-2021 I was a postdoctoral research scholar and a lecturer at the Department of Statistics at Stanford University, advised by David Donoho.

My research is in the areas of mathematical statistics and information theory. I focus on developing methods for signal detection and classification in high-dimensions when data is noisy and scarce. My work usually combines theoretic derivation with ambitious simulation and data science projects.

I have held several industry positions alongside academia. Since 2020 I am the Head of AI at SenseIP. In 2017, I helped co-found Tarseir Systems after taking part in the first ever iteration of the Hacking for Defence class at Stanford. I was also a research intern at Huawei in the summer of 2015 and an algorithm developer at Sandisk (now part of Western Digital) between 2011-2012.

I am looking for graduate students with strong mathematical background and programing skills interested in working on research projects in the broad area of machine learning and data science. Check the list of available projects.

This coming spring (2022-2023) I will be teaching Advanced Statistics for Data Science
