I am a Ph.D. student in the Department of Statistics, University of California, Berkeley, advised by Allan Sly. Before coming to Berkeley I received my M.Sc degree in Mathematics from the Weizmann institute of science with Itai Benjamini serving as my advisor.

My graduate research has been mostly concentrated on problems in discrete probability theory with a special emphasis on problems related to the theory of mixing times of Markov chains and the cutoff phenomenon. Besides that, I have also worked on particle systems driven by random walks and on dependent percolation. I am especially interested in the interaction between geometric properties of graphs, random walk and percolation.
