Short Bio

I received my B.S. degree in Computer Engineering from the Technion in 2003, and my M.S. degree in Electrical Engineering from the Technion in 2007. Since 2003 I have worked as a lecturer and teaching assistant in various affiliations, including the Technion, Bar-Ilan University, Ben-Gurion University, Azrieli College of Engineering and Jerusalem College of Technology. In 2006-2007 I worked as a chip designer in EZchip Technologies, focused on the design and test of network processor blocks. In 2005-2006 I worked as a research assistant in REMON, Israel 4G Mobile Consortium, where I developed Opnet simulations of Handover mechanism at 802.16 (WiMax). In 2003-2004 I worked as a test engineer in Marvell, focused on electrical characterization, test definition and coverage.

Tikkun Olam

Iím a fan of Hapoel Katamon Jerusalem, a fan-owned football club, which promotes co-existence of Jews and Arabs and fights racism and homophobia. My family and me take part in Green Course, which fights for creating a more sustainable and healthier environment for our society. Our girls are educated in kindergartens and schools where secular and religious, Jews and non-Jews, veteran Israelis and new immigrants learn together.
My recommended reading & watching list includes articles by Ben-Dror Yemini, books by Daniel Silva, and this short film.
