Welcome! I am an Assistant Professor at the Department of Mathematics of Technion – Israel institute of Technology. I received my Ph.D. in 2011 at the Technion, and until 2015 was a visiting assistant professor and NSF postdoctoral fellow at the of University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. 

My current graduate students are Tali Monderer (M.Sc.) and Shai Rosenberg (Ph.D.). My first (M.Sc.) student Nimrod Segol graduated in 2017. I also enjoy/ed working with my postdoctoral fellows Joachim Koenig (2016-2017), Francois Legrand (2016-2017), and Arielle Leitner (2017-2018).

My research interests lie in the areas of algebra and number theory. In particular, I am interested in Galois theory, monodromy, algebraic number theory, Brauer groups, field arithmetic, profinite groups and group theory.
