General

I am a Ph.D student at Nanyang Technological University, Singapore, and a member of the Theoretical Computer Science team. My supervisor is Edith Elkind.

I have completed my B.Sc.(mathematics) at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, and attended the Amirim honors program.

Feel free to take a look at my CV.

Research Interests

My work mostly involves game theory, especially algorithmic game theory, cooperative game theory and computational social choice.

Personal

I'm an Israeli guy living in Singapore with my lovely wife Jolene and my sons Noam and Ayal. I like travelling, Jiu-Jitsu, cooking and board games (in no particular order).
