Academic Time-line

I spent AY 2005-2006 and AY 2007-2008 as a member of the School of Mathematics of the Institute for Advanced Study.

In between I spent a year as a Benjamin Peirce Assistant Professor at the Department of Mathematics of Harvard University.

I used to be a student at the Department of Mathematics of Princeton University. I wrote my Ph.D. thesis under Prof. Peter Sarnak.

Before that I was a student at the Departments of Mathematics and Physics of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Israel. I wrote my undergraduate thesis under Prof. Avishai Dekel.
