My CV and Research Statement

I am a Postdoc T.H.Hildebrandt Assistant Professor at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. During the Fall 2017 term I was also a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Geometric and Topological Combinatorics Program at MSRI, and a Visiting Scholar at UC Berkeley. I received my PhD at the Technion - Israel Institute of Technology in 2014. My research interests are combinatorics, discrete geometry and combinatorial topology.
