Research Interests

My main research areas are Algorithms, Networking, Databases, Data Mining, and Optimization. I am interested in understanding challenges and designing algorithms and methods to enhance the performance and functionality of large networks and information systems.

Professional Background

I am a researcher at Microsoft Research (Silicon Valley). I am also a visiting professor at the School of Computer Science in Tel Aviv University (Israel).

I attended Tel Aviv University (Israel) for my undergraduate studies in math, physics, and computer science, graduating in 1985, and continued to obtain an M.Sc. in computer science in 1986, supervised by Michael Tarsi. I then headed to Stanford, CA, where I worked on a Ph.D. in Computer Science, with Andrew Goldberg and Nimrod Megiddo, graduating in 1991. From 1991 to 2012, I was a member of the research staff at AT&T Bell Laboratories , which as a result of a 1997 split, became AT&T Labs Research. In the spring semester of 1997 I visited the Computer Science Division at UC Berkeley. My visit was supported by an NSF grant.
