Welcome to my website!

 

Starting January 2018, I will be joining the The William Davidson Faculty of Industrial Engineering and Management at the Technion - Israel Institute of Technology as an Assistant Professor

 

I am a Post-doctoral Associate at the ORC at MIT under the supervision of Prof. Dimitris Bertsimas.

I am also the lecturer in Optimization Methods course at MIT in Fall 2017.

 

I received my Ph.D.from the Technion in 2015. Thesis on "Robust Tracking via Semidefinite Programming and Noncovex Quadratically Constrained Quadratic Programming", with advisor Prof. Aharon Ben-Tal

 

I received my M.Sc. in Operations Research and System Analysis in 2008 and my B.Sc. in Industrial Engineering and Management in 2002, both from Technion.

 

Research Interests:

  • Optimization applications in: inventory systems, estimation and control, statistics and healthcare.
  • Robust and adaptive optimization.
  • Data-driven optimization.
  • Algorithms for nonconvex and mixed-integer optimization.
  • Nonconvex and nonsmooth optimization theorey and algorithms,
  • First order and primal-dual methods.
  • Semidefinite programming.
