I am with the Department of Communication Systems Engineering, Ben-Gorion University of the Negev. Before that, I was a postdoc at Caltech, working with Prof. Michelle Effros on problems in network information theory. The projects were part of the ITMANET-FLoWS (Fundamental Limits of Wireless Systems) research. I received my B.Sc., M.Sc., and Ph.D. in electrical engineering from the Technion - I.I.T., supervised by Prof. Neri Merhav and Prof. Tsachy Weissman.

 

Short Bio:

Research Interests:

  1. Network coding and network source coding in particular. Networks with correlated data and networks with side information. Network error correction.

  2. Anomaly detection and its applications in network security problems.

  3. Distributed scheduling and distributed resource allocation in wireless networks.

  4. Information inequalities and their usage in finding simple representations for network coding solutions. Polymatroid optimization in sensor networks.

  5. Prediction and sequential decision making. Source coding. Statistical signal processing. Filtering and denoising. Empirical measures for independence in individual sequences.

  6. Coding theory. Performance analysis of codes.
