Profile picture 


I am a fifth year PhD candidate at Stanford University under the supervision of Andrea Goldsmith. Previously I completed an M.Sc in mathematics, a B.Sc in electrical engineering and a B.Sc in Mathematics, all from Ben-Gurion University (BGU). Between 2011-2012 I developed data compression algorithms for flash memory devices at SanDisk. I have spent the summer of 2015 at Huawei working on rateless codes and coding over multiple radio access technologies. My research interests include information theory, signal processing, wireless communication and statistical learning.

My research focuses on compression under partial source information, and on statistical estimation under compression constraint. I am particularly interested in the fundamental limits of what is possible and impossible in estimating signal or parameters under constraints on the amount of memory or communication rates between the observations and the estimation unit. You can read more about my past work and future plans on my Research Statement page.
