Or Sharir, Ph.D.

About Me

I am a Postdoctoral Scholar at the Computing + Mathematical Sciences (CMS) Department at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech), advised by Prof. Anima Anandkumar and Prof. Garnet Chan. My research focuses on investigating and further developing the theoretical underpinnings for deep learning methods, with some surprising connections to Quantum Physics.

I obtained my Ph.D. in Computer Science from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem under the supervison of Prof. Amnon Shashua. I also have a B.Sc. in Physics, Mathematics and Computer Science from the Hebrew University. (Detailed CV).

If you are looking for my old class notes, you can find them here (website and notes are in Hebrew).
