Randomness is very hard to achieve. Order keeps creeping in when you're not looking.

I am a researcher at the Department of Mathematics, Ben Gurion University.

I did my Ph.D. under Itai Benjamini at the Weizmann Institute.

I was a Herchel Smith post-doc at the University of Cambridge, where I got to meet some great people...

• DLA on a discrete cylinder. The base graph is the cycle on 500 vertices.
Approximately 64,400 particles.

• Simple random walk (grey) and its loop-erasure (black) on two similar graphs.
The Euclidean plane, Z^2 (left), and the infinite component after super-critical percolation (with parameter 3/4) on Z^2 (right).

• Simple random walk (grey) and its loop-erasure (black) on a random environment on Z^2.
The environment is i.i.d. uniform (0,1) random variables p(z) for all z in Z^2, such that the probability either to go up or to go down is p(z)/2, and the probability either to go left or to go right is (1-p(z))/2.

• Laplacian-infinity path on a 600x600 torus. Starting vertex and target are at antipodal points. Definitely not SLE(0).

• Tricolor percolation. A self-avoiding path in 3D, determined by exploring the interface between cells of the BCC lattice colored randomly in 3 colors.
