I am a faculty member in the computer science department at the Weizmann Institute. Prior to joining Weizmann, I was part of the distributed computing group of Prof. Nancy Lynch as a postdoctoral fellow at CSAIL, MIT. For my PhD studies, I was extremely fortunate to have Prof. David Peleg as my advisor also here in Weizmann. 

My research revolves around several aspects of theoretical computer science, and in particular: fault tolerant graph structures, spanners, distributed graph algorithms and their synergy with information theoretic cryptography.  

News: I am looking for excellent and highly-motivated PhD students and postdocs with a background in either distributed algorithms, graph algorithms or information theoretic cryptography, to join our group. To get some clue on ongoing projects, you are welcome to view my recent keynote talk at SOFSEM 2021.  I like getting emails with questions and comments, so please do drop me an email if you find it interesting!
