I am a postdoctoral researcher working with Prof. James Demmel (Math department and Electric Engineering and Computer Science Department) in the Parallel Computing Lab.

My current research interests include parallel computing, scientific computing, algorithmic linear algebra, high performance computing, and accelerating algorithms by reducing communication costs.

Before coming to Berkeley, I did my PhD at the School of Computer Science at Tel-Aviv University under the supervision of Prof. Muli Safra and Prof. Amnon Ta-Shma. I then conducted postdoctoral research at the Math department of TU-Berlin, working primarily with Prof. Olga Holtz, then at the department of Applied Math and Computer Science in Weizmann institute, hosted by Prof. Irit Dinur.
