Profile picture 


I recently graduated with a PhD in electrical engineering from Stanford University. 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 the intersection of data compression, statistical estimation and signal processing. I am particularly interested in understanding what is possible and impossible in estimating signals or parameters under constraints on the communication rates between the data and the estimation/processing unit. You can read more about my past work and future plans on my Research Statement page.
