Research Interests

I am Postdoctoral Visiting Scholar (Visiting PostDoc) and a Lecturer in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, University of Michigan & Department of Mathematics, University of Michigan. Previously, I was a Postdoctoral Research Associate (PostDoc) & Lecturer at CCI, Department of Computer Science, Princeton University. I had the pleasure of doing my Ph.D. under the superb supervision of Amir Shpilka. At that time I was a Research & Teaching Assistant at the Computer Science Department, Technion,.

My interests are in the area of Theoretical Computer Science and Discrete Mathematics.
In particular: Computational Complexity, Derandomization, Algebraic Complexity and Application of Algebraic Tools to Algorithms and other areas of CS. My recent interests also include Algorithmic and General Game Theory. 

I am currently on the job market!
