I am a Professor of
Mathematics at UCLA.
Before coming to Los Angeles
I enjoyed the hospitality of
Princeton University and Institute for Advanced Study.
I got my Ph.D. in 1999 from the School
of Mathematical Sciences, Tel Aviv University. My advisor was Noga Alon.
My work is supported by
NSF grant DMS-1101185, AFOSR MURI grant FA9550-10-1-0569 and USA-Israel BSF grant.
Office: Math Sciences 7911, UCLA,
Los Angeles, CA 90095.
Phone: (310) 825-1087.
Fields of interest
Algebraic and Probabilistic Methods in Combinatorics,
Graph and Hypergraph Theory,
Ramsey Theory, Random Structures, Application of
Combinatorics to Theoretical Computer Science.
