I am an Assistant Professor in The William Davidson Faculty of Industrial Engineering and Management at the Technion - Israel Institute of Technology.


Between 2015-2017 I was an instructor and post-doctoral associate at the ORC at MIT under the supervision of Prof. Dimitris Bertsimas.


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:
