I am a Phillip Griffiths Assistant Research Professor at Duke University's math department as well as at the Rhodes Interdisciplinary Initiative. I am currently privilaged to be working with Prof. Ingrid Daubechies. Before that, I have completed my PhD in applied mathematics at Tel-Aviv University (my thesis) under the mentoring of Prof. David Levin. My MSc was co-mentored by Prof. Levin and Prof. Israel Finkelstein from the Department of Archaeology and Ancient Near Eastern Civilizations.
My research ranges between analysis of high dimensional data from a geometrical perspective and the application of mathematical and statistical methods in digital humanities (see the PROJECTS tab).
Other than that, I am a flute player (see the MUSIC tab), and I am a math-therapist (yes... it is an oxymoron - but it is real - if you are interested, ask me about it! or just visit the MATHERAPY tab)
Some of my research even made it to the public media.
See below some selected interviews conducted with me and my colleagues regarding the Computerized Paleography project:
An interview at the NYT about statistical evidence for high literacy rates in Judah of the 600 BCE
An interview at the HAARETZ about the Computerized Paleography project
An interview at the NYT about revealing a new inscription using Multispectral Imaging techniques on the backside of an inscription that was lying in the museum for more than half a century.
