Academic, professional and personal information.

I am a PhD student at the Applied Crypto Group at Stanford University, advised by Dan Boneh. My research was recently focused around mobile security and privacy. Previously, I held several positions in industry as a team manager, independent contractor, and software architect and developer, mostly in the fields of networks, embedded software and security. I hold a BSc in Electrical Engineering from the Technion, and an MS in Electrical Engineering from Stanford University.

Here you can find my academic works and links to professional and personal stuff such as my Blog, music and paintings.

I'm also functioning as a member of the Israeli Students Organization at Stanford. You can find more details about its activities on the ISO Website.
