About #

I am a Postdoctoral Scholar at the Computing + Mathematical Sciences (CMS) Department at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech), hosted by Prof. Anima Anandkumar and Prof. Garnet Chan.

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).

My research focuses on investigating and further developing the theoretical underpinnings for deep learning methods, with some surprising connections to Quantum Physics.
