Anonymous About me: I’m an associate professor at the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, Israel. I did my undergraduate studies at the department of communication system engineering, BGU. I received my MSc and Ph.D. degrees in computer science from the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), in 2003 and 2006, respectively. I spent a sabbatical year during 2013-2014 as a visiting professor at ICERM and Brown University, RI, USA. In 2018-2021 I served as the chair of the Communication Systems Engineering department at BGU. Since 2021 I’m also a senate member at BGU. Currently I’m also an asssoiate editor at IEEE TNSM.

My research lies at the intersection of systems and theory. I am motivated by real-life systems, their operations, and the problems and questions they present. My goal is to study the properties of these systems analytically to exploit them for the development of efficient algorithms. Please see some of my selected publications or the complete list of publications.

Research Intrests: I have a broad range of research interests, including networking, algorithms, social networks, and information theory. In particular, my current main research work is modeling and analysis of data-driven graphs and network algorithms emphasizing demand-aware and self-adjusting networks. Additionally, I continue to work on distributed systems, social networks, In-netwrok computing and randomized algorithms for networking.

Prospective Students: I’m always looking for new creative, and motivated students. If you are interested in any of the above topics, please, don’t hesitate to drop me an e-mail and come to chat.
