I am a Postdoctoral Associate at the Department of Mathematical Sciences at Carnegie Mellon University. Previously, I was a postdoc at the Einstein Institute of Mathematics of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. I finished my PhD studies at the Mathematics Department at the Technion, Israel Institute of Technology, under the supervision of Prof. Roy Meshulam. 

My research is in the area of Combinatorics. I like to work on problems related to geometry and topology (such as the study of collapsibility and Leray numbers of simplicial complexes and their relation to Helly-type theorems, or questions about the rigidity of graphs). I am also interested in the study of Laplacian (and Laplacian-like) operators on graphs and simplicial complexes.
