About me

I am a researcher in the VMware Research Group.
I am interested in the theory and practice of parallel and distributed systems, including reliable storage, transactional memory, reconfiguration, byzantine agreement, blockchains, cryptography and cryptocurrency.

Before joining VMware research, I did a PhD at the Technion, where I worked with Prof. Idit Keidar.
I received my BSc in Electrical Engineering at the Technion in 2013 (Graduated Summa Cum Laude).

My CV is available here.
