Drawn towards 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, concluding it with a BA in maths and a BA in physics in 2003. Completely smitten by maths, in particular the fields of maths that pertain to physics, I continued my studies at the Department of Mathematics and obtained my Masters Degree in 2006. Determined to continue, I was a accepted into the Ph.D programme of Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech) in 2007, and obtained my Doctorate degree in December 2011, under the supervision of Prof. Michael Loss.
Currently, I am a Universitätsassistent mit Doktorat (A2) (on par with a non-tenured Assistant Professor) at the Karl-Franzens-Universität Graz, a position that comes after 2 years at Technishe Universität Wien (TU Wien) where I was a Lise Meitner Fellow, and 5 years at the university of Cambridge of which the last 3 were under a personal EPSRC Post Doctoral Fellowship.
My main research interests are applied analysis, applied probability, functional inequalities, spectral theory, semigroup theory and optimal transportation – and their interaction via intra-disciplinary research.
