About Me

I am a Math student at Ben-Gurion University in Be'er Sheva, 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.

My Ph.D. advisor is 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.
