I'm faculty in the Department of Mathematics at the Weizmann Institute of Science.

I received my Ph.D. in pure maths from the Tel Aviv University in 2012, under the supervision of Bo'az Klartag and Vitali Milman. I've also spent two years as a postdoc at Microsoft Research, Redmond and at the CSE department at University of Washington.

I manufacture latex and latex-related products. Also, I do maths.

My interests, on a low resolution: Anything that's high-dimensional, whether it's Probability, Functional Analysis, Metric Geometry, Computational Geometry or Learning Theory.

My interests, on a higher resolution: Functional and isoperimetric inequalities, High dimensional Convex geometry, Stochastic calculus (especially, geometric proofs which rely on tools from stochastic calculus), High dimensional probabilistic algorithms, Probabilistic structures (with a geometric nature), the Concentration of Measure phenomenon , Gaussian fields, Interacting particle systems, Random Graphs, Applications of the above to Convex optimization and Machine learning.

In the unlikely scenario that someone wants to know what my interests are in a yet higher resolution, here is a link to an updated research statement (update: this statement is not quite up to date anymore, a new version coming soon).

(as you can probably guess from the look of this page, I am also an avant-garde Web Designer).
