profile_picFascinated by science from an early age, I started my academic career in 1999 when I enrolled to the Mathematical Physics programme at the Technion – Israel Institute of Technology, finishing with both a BA in maths and a BA in physics in 2003. Completely smitten by maths, in particular the field of Analysis, I continued my studies at the Technion and obtained my MA Degree in 2006. Subsequently, I was a accepted into a Ph.D programme in Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech) in 2007, and obtained my Doctorate degree in December 2011, under the supervision of Prof. Michael Loss.

I am an Assistant Professor for Analysis and Partial Differential Equations (PDEs) at Durham University, a position that follows a couple of years as a Universitätsassistent mit Doktorat (A2) (on par with a non-tenured Assistant Professor) at Karl-Franzens-Universität Graz, a Lise Meitner Fellowship at Technische Universität Wien, and a personal EPSRC Post Doctoral Fellowship at the University of Cambridge.

My main research interests are applied analysis, applied probability, PDEs, semigroup and spectral theory, functional inequalities, optimal transportation, interpolation theory – and their interactions.
