About Me

I am a Post Doc in the department of Mathematics at Weizmann Institute of Science Rehovot, Israel. My CV is available here.

I'm interested mainly in representation theory, mostly of arithmetic groups and their local completions and in subjects relating to representation growth.

I am part of Rami Aizenbud's research group.

I completed my Ph.D. under the supervision of Uri Onn.


I am currently a teaching assistant of Discrete Mathematics. Tutorial notes are available here.

In previous years I acted as a teaching assistant of Algebra for CS and math and Calculus courses for engineering, as well as a lecturer of pre-Calculus for high school teachers.
