About Me

I'm a postdoctoral fellow at the Center for Research on Computation and Society at the School for Engineering and Applied Sciences at Harvard University, under the supervision of the brilliant prof. Salil Vadhan. Before joining Harvard, I was a Research Fellow at the Theoretical Foundations of Big Data program at Simons Institute for the Theory of Computing. I completed my PhD in computer science from Carnegie Mellon University, advised by the ingenious-as-a-gross-understatement prof. Avrim Blum. I got my M.Sc in computer science from the Weizmann Institute of Science, where I had the honor of being advised by prof. Oded Goldreich. I have a B.Sc Hebrew University in Jerusalem, Israel, where I was fortunate to work with prof. Nati Linial as part of the sgh Amirim honors program.

My research interests lie in broad theoretical computer science. My work includes projects in approximation algorithms, machine learning in general and clustering in particular, algorithmic game theory and privacy. Differential privacy has been the focus of my research in last years. I am a proud member of the Privacy Tools for Sharing Research Data project.

Teaching

In Fall 2014, together with prof. Kobbi Nissim, I am teaching a course on differential privacy. This is a graduate-level course, open to undergraduate students as well. Course Website.
