Contact Me
I am a Ph.D. student in the  Department of Computer Science at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, under the supervision of Prof. Shlomi Dolev. Before coming to Israel, I received a Master's degree from TU Kaiserslautern, and Master's thesis from Max Planck Institute for Software Systems, Kaiserslautern, Germany.

Research Interests

My research interests lie in Distributed Computing and Algorithms, more specifically in Graph (Distributed) Algorithms, Online Algorithms, Self-Stabilization and, more recently, Bio-inspired algorithms and Combinatorial Reconfiguration.
