I have joined the School of Electrical Engineering in October 2010. Previously, I was a post-doc researcher at the Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science of Weizmann Institute of Science, hosted by Oded Goldreich and Moni Naor, and a post-doc at the Department of Computer Science of Princeton University, hosted by Boaz Barak. I received my PhD in 2007 from the Computer Science Department of the Technion under the supervision of Yuval Ishai and Eyal Kushilevitz. The title of my dissertation was "cryptography in constant parallel time". I completed my undergraduate studies at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem in 2002, where I earned a B.Sc. in computer science and was a member of Amirim - the special program for outstanding students.

I am happily married to my beloved wife Hilla and we have two lovely daughters and a son (Shira, Maya and Noam). I have a broad taste in music, and I play primarily classical and electric guitar. At the past, I studied composition in Rimon, and I was involved in several (highly unsuccessful) rock bands.
