I'm a fourth-year PhD student in the Department of Computer Science at Ben-Gurion University. I have the privilege of being advised by Prof. Aryeh Kontorovich and Prof. Yishay Mansour.


Research interests

My primary research interests are the statistical and computational aspects of theoretical machine learning, as well as its intersection with related fields, such as game theory, optimization, statistics and private data analysis.
